    2. Holy kamole, this book just killed me dead.It murdered me with cuteness.It's a story about Mr. Peanuts (YES! MR. PEANUTS!) who is not an ordinary squirrel. He performs many people activities and he is adorable when he does so. He grills peanuts and apparently calls them hot dogs. He fastidiously cleans his house to prepare for the arrival of his cousin! They get ice cream and they play chess! It is adorable!And you may be wondering how this could be all that cute? Well, these are real squirrels! [...]

    3. Most squirrels spend their days gathering nuts and climbing trees. Not Mr. Peanuts.He is a rather unusual squirrel.This book is ADORABLE, and both children and adults will enjoy it. It shows a squirrel living his little life: ironing, drinking coffee/tea while reading books, vacuuming, and grilling. He invites his cousin to stay with him and they have an enjoyable time together. The story is simple, but the story isn't really the point: the pictures are.At the end of the book there are two extra [...]

    4. The most fascinating part of this odd book is the instructions on how to photograph wildlife.

    5. The patience involved with making the set ups and backgrounds and then waiting for the squirrels to interact with these things. The author has a website secretlifeofsquirrels with more fun pictures of the squirrels interacting with more sets.

    7. What's cuter than a squirrel doing everyday people things?? Almost nothing, my friends. Read along as Mr. Peanuts awaits his cousins arrival. Who doesn't love miniature BBQ pits and vacuums?

    8. Great book or greatest book? The Secret Life of Squirrels is a masterpiece of squirrel photography. My only complaint is that there is one photo near the end of a blue jay. I'd have much preferred a 100% bird free book

    9. This is the book that deserves to be on anyone's gift list this season. If you have a problem person to buy for then The Secret Life of Squirrels is your answer! At first you might wonder do I really want to know what squirrels do in secret (or you might assume you already know) and then, you turn the page and are so happy you found out. They are just like everyone else. They bake, they read and they like to spend a bit of time outdoors with their bbq. They write letters and friends come to visi [...]

    10. A darling book that had me laughing out loud several times. Nancy Rose doesn't own trained squirrels per se but the squirrels in her backyard were willing to play her various tableau for food and a bit of fame. It puts my half dozen squirrels to shame. In addition to a sweet little story, Rose takes the time to not only explains how all the pictures were taken but the best way to take your own wildlife pictures.

    11. Never underestimate the appeal of miniatures. Mr. Peanuts (a real squirrel) (not taxidermy thank god) is photographed in various tableaux made of doll furniture or handmade items - LOVE the twig bed and the appliances made from boxes. But this is a taste thing. Either you think squirrels are cute, or you see them as squirmy, bitey, greasy-looking creeps."Ten tips for photographing wildlife" is a great piece of backmatter.

    12. Well, this is adorable. Mr. Peanuts is lonely and mails a tiny letter to his cousin inviting him for a visit. The story is told in photos of real squirrels, shot by a photographer who built her own miniature sets on her deck and baited them with peanuts, then waited for the right light and the right shot. Includes "ten tips for photographing wildlife" and "Q&A with Nancy Rose."

    13. I love the creativity and patience of this author/photographer! I had seen some of her squirrel pictures before, so I was happy when I saw this book! She creates miniature tableaux, and then wait until squirrels come to investigate and snaps hundreds of photos until she gets just the right one to create the scene. So cute!

    14. OK. It doesn't matter what the story is about. The book portrays squirrels doing people things - like mailing a letter, playing a piano, and reading. The photographs are all it needs to make this one a hit! Bonus is learning how to photograph live animals - if you're brave enough to try.

    15. Every kid who spends time building houses and cars and furniture for fairies, Polly Pockets, pet guinea pigs, etc. (like I did when I was a kid) will be enchanted by these photos of squirrels in adorable scenes built by photographer Nancy Rose. Too. Cute.

    16. I teach high school Special Education and when I read this book to my class it was the first book all year that they looked at and listened to!! Most of my kids have ASD so eye contact is not usual! They loved this book!!! The pictures are amazing!

    17. A most unique story, almost like the secret life of squirrels! Photos and other real life objects comprise the illustrations. A couple of pages at the end of the book give tips on photography and shows how the creator set up some of the photos.

    21. Super fun photographs of Mr. Peanuts going about day-to-day life and receiving a visit from his cousin. Of course, any book that features squirrels being awesome is fantastic in my opinion.

    22. I've always wished I could hold a squirrel. Nancy Rose's book makes them look even cuter with her photographs of those furry "rodents" doing real life things.

    23. Genius. And so funny. My kids loved it, as did I.

    24. If you like photos of animals doing human things, you will like this book. If you don't, you won't. I'm not a big fan of such things, and the text leaves something to be desired.

    26. These stories don't have much of a story line but have really cool photos :)

    27. Very cute! And I loved the Q&A with the author in the back - she describes how she makes her own props and "sets" and the secret to luring squirrels - peanuts! Go look at more of the author's photographs of squirrels on her website!*Update 7/27/2017*-Reread this book for the Pop Sugar’s 2017 Reading Challenge -A book you’ve read before that never fails to make you smile

    28. This was a really cute book with a sweet story. I was very curious (and worried) to see if the squirrels photographed were taxidermy projects. I was happy to find at the end of the book it tells how the author photographed the LIVE squirrels. In my mind, I was sayingOh, thank goodness they weren't stuffed! HA!

    29. What's fun about this book - besides, obviously, the ingenious pictures - is talking to your child about how the photographer managed to get the squirrels to cooperate. There's a nice interview in the back that will help get the discussion going.

    30. The pictures are charming and what make these shine and inspired my 8 yo - text is very simple, not living.
