Nuts To YouPaperback - 2016
How far would you go for a friend? In Nuts to You, the funny and moving illustrated novel by Newbery Medalist Lynne Rae Perkins, two squirrels go very far indeed to save a friend who has been snatched up by a hawk. Nuts to You "begs to be read aloud . . . another completely original and exceptional package from Perkins," said the Horn Book. Nuts to You features black-and-white art by the author on every page, as well as exclusive material original to this edition.
Jed, TsTs, and Chai are the very best of friends. So when Jed is snatched up by a hawk and carried away to another realm, TsTs and Chai resolve to go after him. Mysteriously, the hawk has dropped him. They saw it. Jed could be alive. New communities are discovered, new friends are made, huge danger is encountered (both man-made and of the fox and bobcat variety) and the mysteries of squirrel culture are revealed. Nuts to You is wholly original, funny, lively, and thought-provoking. Publishers Weekly said, "Readers . . . will relish the squirrels' adventures, as well as Perkins's laugh-aloud illustrations and equally witty footnotes."
Includes an introduction, epilogue, and footnotes throughout, as well as original exclusive material from the author.

If someone, your teacher maybe, ever asks you what "irony" or "being ironic" means, you can say it's when a squirrel says, "our friend, the hawk," and you will be right.
(Footnote on page 16)
I tried to think whether I had ever had a great adventure. I decided that I had. It's all in how you look at it.
