A chipmunk family lives in a cemetery. They are not the only animals that live there. Squirrels, owls, fox, birds and vultures all live in the cemetery located in the Rocky Mountains. Little chipmunk’s mother is not happy with the vultures living so close by.

One young vulture over hears the chipmunk’s insults. His feelings are hurt. The other animals in the neighborhood are not happy with little chipmunk’s behavior.
There are lots of lessons to be learned from this story: Accepting others for who they are not how they look and Learning to watch your tongue.

The author allows children to see that the old cemetery is not a spooky place at all. It can be a nice place to watch animals and to see beautiful flowers. The writing style is conversational. This book is easy to read and understand. This book will open dialogue between you and your children.

The art work in magnificent. Children will enjoy the pictures. They add to the story. This book is well made and ill stand up to the most vigorous youngster.
