    Animal lover or not, you're guaranteed to smile!

    Enchanting tales of man v. beast, ok man v. a cute, fat squirrel, will keep you wishing for the simple days and make your attention turn towards the wonder of the outdoors. All the pranks and invention will keep you happily confused on who to cheer for. Wonderful to share with the family on a cold winter night by the fire!

    Squirrels and Husbands and the Backyard War

    My Squirrely Husband is much more than a story about squirrels or about husbands. It is a delightful story about a family full of family love and affection along with being part of a neighborhood--a nearly lost concept today. While I was orginally attracted to the book because my husband and I also battled (and loved) the squirrels that shared our back yard, the real reason I've sent copies to my grandchildren is to show that family life is the greatest gift any of us can enjoy

    A delightful read!

    When I read this book, it took me back to an charming mid-20th century, mid-America. The author has an engaging way of telling tales of big family life, untamed nature, and the perennial battle of man-versus-squirrel. The family¿s encounters with neighborhood wildlife are so outrageous, I wouldn¿t have believed them without the pages of photos! I¿ve read it twice!

    For kids of all ages who have lived with squirrels.

    An absolutely delightful book! Highly recommended for older kids who remember the squirrels in their parents' backyards and for THEIR kids and grandkids who are just experiencing the fun now! Everytime I pass a bird feeder display or see 'squirrel proof' bird feeders in a catalog now, I just chuckle.

    I laughed so hard I cried.

    What homeowner hasn't gone through this battle? A hysterical story. Well written and entertaining. Everyone who has ever battled with these varmints should pick this up!
