About the Author:

Simon lives in Devon.

From Booklist:

Ages 3-6. Walking with her Grandad, Jess spies a squirrel and decides to keep him. Grandad has trouble just keeping up with them as Jess and the squirrel go deeper into the woods, using stepping stones and fallen trees to cross streams and mucking through muddy places in their path. Every time Grandad raises an objection to her animal adoption plan--"Where will he sleep?"--Jess has an answer, but when it comes down to the central issue, she cheerfully concedes that a squirrel really belongs in the wild. An innocent love of natural creatures, so apparent in James' endearing Mr. Blueberry (1991), is also what gives this picture book its universal appeal. The beautifully composed pen-and-ink illustrations with watercolor washes have a feeling of spontaneity and touches of humor. A terrific book to read aloud before the kindergarten class takes a nature hike or during practically any preschool story time. Writing and illustrating picture books that are simple without being simplistic, sensitive without being sentimental, James has the gift of pleasing adult readers and children listeners alike.
