Earl the Squirrel doesn't think of himself as spoiled, but his mother does. She decides it's high time Earl learns to find acorns for himself. There's only one problem--he doesn't know where to look. Earl's friend Jill offers to help, but that's not what Earl's mother had in mind. So, wearing his bright red scarf, Earl sets off on his own for an action-packed acornfinding mission.
Striking black-and-white scratchboard art is accented by Earl's crimson scarf. The effect is classic, clean, and thoroughly recognizable as Don Freeman's signature style.

Review: Earl the Squirrel

User Review  - Goodreads

I adored Earl the Squirrel. I saw shades of Ferdinand in the picture of Conrad the bull under the tree, but mostly I just saw a super-sweet story about independence and ingenuity. What FABULOUS illustrations, too! Read full review
