Mr. Squirrel Finds A Treasure: A Grumpy the Iguana and Green Parrot Adventure is a well-written children’s book penned by Susan Marie Chapman and illustrated by Natalia Loseva. A group of animal friends wakes up to find litter in their neighborhood. When Mr. Squirrel finds some plastic lodged under something heavy, his friends help him in freeing it. Mr. Squirrel excitedly takes it back to the new home he is building for the upcoming bad weather. When the animals discover so much discarded trash from the humans, they proactively decide to put it to good use and arrange it to form a very important message for the future of our planet. When the media become involved, the combined effort by the animal friends makes it all worthwhile, not only to them but to all beings who share our planet.
Mr. Squirrel Finds A Treasure is one of those rare tales that not only had me deep in thought but also had me smiling toward the end of this delightful children’s tale - one which carries such a vital message to all who read it. Although littering is “easy” for any person too lazy to dispose of their trash properly, doing so creates a dangerous (and sometimes deadly) obstacle to the animals with whom we share the planet. Susan Marie Chapman’s inspiring words brought a smile to my face as I watched the animals do something positive which resulted in an incredible change to those who share our big blue and green planet. Not only does the litter create a problem for those who live here but it also changes the climate, the water levels of the ocean, the breathing quality of our air, and the actual ability to live. I believe that although Mr. Squirrel Finds A Treasure would be best received by those aged between 5-8, the tale carries a message so powerful that all who read it would enjoy the fruitful rewards it brings and change that could prolong the future of all creatures great and small.
