Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

This collection of sharply observed animal-themed tales is a delight, told with David Sedaris's trademark blend of hilarity and goodnaturedness. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of our own everyday interactions.

In 'The Toad, the Turtle, and the Duck', three strangers commiserate about animal bureaucracy while waiting in a complaint line. In 'Hello Kitty', a cynical feline struggles to sit through his prison-mandated AA meetings. In 'The Squirrel and the Chipmunk', a pair of star-crossed lovers is separated by prejudiced family members.


Review:
'The book doesn't disappoint . . . Imagine Aesop meeting Nick Park's Creature Comforts, directed by Quentin Tarantino . . . I can't remember the last time I grinned so much while reading. SQUIRREL SEEKS CHIPMUNK is the sort of book that you will want to dip in to in years to come' --Hardeep Singh Kohli, The Times

'This inventive, witty - wise, even - collection will enliven any short bus journey and Ian Falconer's drawings complement it perfectly'
--Toby Clements, Daily Telegraph

Review

Review:
* The brilliantly quirky David Sedaris returns with a book of acerbic and outrageously funny stories about animals who have unmistakably human failings, with a hilarious new story for the paperback edition
