Title of review: "On Miller Street"
A squirrel, a dog, a crab, and a bat make this a delightful storyline. Come, go on a journey with them and learn of their grand adventures through Gooseberry Park. This story is endearing and engaging, and you should enjoy this "escape" from the ordinary and enjoy the antics of these main characters, for they are sure to win your attention, time, and heart. ENJOY!

When Kona, a Labrador retriever, meets Stumpy, the squirrel in Gooseberry Park, it's best friends at first sight. But after Stumpy's babies are born, disaster strikes in the form of a violent ice storm.
Kona is not a fair-weather friend; he's worried sick! How will Stumpy and her babies survive? With the help of Murray, a hilarious bat, and Gwendolyn, a wise hermit crab, Kona shows just how true-and heroic-a friend can be.

"What are we going to do, Gwendolyn?" Kona asked, his big head casting a giant shadow over her bowl. "Stumpy is in big trouble."
"Yes," Gwendolyn answered, nodding. "It's serious, very serious. Even if her tree is still standing, she will be trapped in her nest. And the ice...the babies..."
"I have to help her," Kona said, pacing in circles around the living room.
