Fun, fur, friends and a five iron.
Critter Golf: The Adventures at Owl’s Nest is a story that mixes friendship, golf and true amazement. A possum, a rabbit, a raccoon, and a squirrel sure make an odd foursome, but these four furry pals prove there is nothing they won’t do for one another. You will cheer for them while they root for each other. You will laugh and smile as these friends giggle their way through many exciting adventures. There are so many questions to answer. How do these critters learn to play golf? Can a rabbit really learn to climb a tree? Can a possum escape a hungry pack of coyotes? What begins as a story of golf becomes a test for survival. These buddies never forget the lessons learned from local PGA pros or the lessons gained from the bonds of great friendship.

This book's story is so funny! The critters are real characters, and they learn not just about golf but also about how to play fair and how to keep their friendship sweet! It might be just the thing for those rainy days this summer, especially for the 7-10 crowd. The chapters are just the right length, too. What's really nice is that each chapter tells a complete scene so kids can read it one chapter at a time...if they can put it down! As a teacher, I highly recommend Critter Golf!
The story is fun and teaches good values.
