Bird & Squirrel All Together: 11/04/22
Bird & Squirrel All Together by James Burks (2022) is the seventh book in the graphic novel series. Bird goes on one last adventure with Squirrel and his family before finally heading south for the winter.
This last adventure is more caper than anything else. While out and about the duo finds a treasure map. Squirrel takes a night to decide if he will go and if it will be safe enough for his family. He reluctantly agrees only after crafting an agenda and safety protocol that is quite the tome.
After everything Squirrel has successfully been through, it was odd to see him regress into full panic mode. But some of this was more a comment on how much he loves and wants to protect his family. Family can make a person (or squirrel) more cautious.
Regardless of the possibly out of character moment for Squirrel, the book is entertaining. I love a good caper / treasure hunt story. The gags were silly. The timing was perfect. The art was beautiful.
This volume feels like a conclusion but I said that with Bird & Squirrel On Fire (2017). If an eighth book is released, I will definitely read it.
