Literature / Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk

Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk - or to give it its full title, Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary - is a collection of animal fables by American humorist David Sedaris. It can be seen as a Spiritual Successor to Aesop's Fables, although if anything the morals and the way they play out is even more cynical. With gorgeous art by veteran children's illustrator Ian Falconer, the book could make a tempting gift for young children. Shoppers are strongly advised to read it through before making that call.
