Squirrel Story
January 18, 2008 7:23 AM   Subscribe

I would like help finding a book from my childhood. It's about a female squirrel that takes up residence in an attic, and the toy soldiers in the attic defend her from a pack of bad male squirrels.

"Miss Suzy" perhaps:


"Miss Suzy, a squirrel, is kicked out of her cozy home by some mean squirrels. She befriends and cares for five toy soldiers who end up helping her! This is a reprint of a classic story about friendship."

Google search terms were: children's book squirrel toy soldiers

Hope that's the book you were looking for,

It's absolutely Miss Suzy. I still have the book, and I always loved the story/artwork.

Miss Suzy! I know it's been said, but it makes me happy just to say it. There's a picture of the soldiers marching with the caption "There were five of them, and they were brave" that has sprung to my mind now and then when I see groups of people walking together.
