Graphic novel for young readers (4-8) – Donut Feed the Squirrels by Mika Song
A romp for the family, from littlest on up. Clever squirrels Norma and Belly want pancakes… but in their excitement they got burned! But there’s still a good smell in the air… I laughed on most pages as Norma and Belly scheme to get donuts from the new food truck in the park. There are physical gags, machines going wrong, delicious snacks, and more. It follows a heist format with a getaway car, a wise advisor, and lots of challenges. The squirrels jump on each new problem with good humor and short-lasting dismay, and we’re left smiling.
