Pearl Squirrel had built a lovely new home in a tree and invited her forest friends over for a housewarming party. Some of her friends like Mrs. Deerheart, Mrs. Rabbit, and Maurice Skunk were unable to get up the tree to Pearl's home, and all of her friends found Pearl's home inadequate for their needs in one way or another. This upset Pearl, so she sought advice from wise Solomon Raven, who helped her understand how different types of homes are right for different forest folk.
