From the poor duck that was mystified by her own egg-laying abilities to finding snow ghosts, The Squirrels Goblet is a heart-warming collection of 56 true-life stories of natures wonders and antics. Highlighted by photos, the tales include funny, often touching, anecdotes about drunken birds, a disappearing rope, fireflies, a delicate loop of snow, thunderstorm sideshows, a frog and his feather and much more. In the tradition of Aesops Fables, each story is followed by a modern-day moral. A relaxing book for adults and young adults; easy to read to and enjoy with children.
