Description-
  • At once heartrending and hopeful, Ann Martin’s exquisite story of a dog’s life is told with her trademark grace and insight.

    Squirrel is not like most dogs. Born a stray, she must make her own way in the world, facing busy highways, changing seasons, and humans both gentle and brutal. Her life story, in her own words, is marked by loss, but also by an inspiring instinct to survive. And when it seems she will roam the woods and country roads alone forever, Squirrel makes two friends who, in very different ways, define her fate.

    Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Squirrel, born a stray dog, learns the hard way about survival. Starting from Squirrel's older years and looking back, Martin allows the reader to listen with concern, but not fear, as Squirrel tells of her life from stray puppy to well-loved pet. Wendy Dillon gives all the characters individual voices, which accurately portray George's impatience, Marcy's bewilderment, and Susan's kindness. Squirrel's voice is exceptional; it is clearly that of an older, experienced dog--husky and warm, steady and calm--and Dillon paces it slowly to enhance the sense of age, patience, and wisdom. The nuances in her voice create images that range from carefree to bittersweet. Squirrel's life story is told with acceptance and a poignant grace. W.L.S.
