About The Book

Stumpy the Squirrel and friends team up to save the day in this charming standalone companion to the beloved Gooseberry Park, from Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant and illustrator Arthur Howard.

There has been no rain for months, and all of the animals in Gooseberry Park are in danger. Can the crew of dear friends come up with a brilliant solution in time to save the day? Absolutely!

Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant’s first novel in more than a decade has all the wit and charm of the first adventure of the Gooseberry Park gang, as she “ unspools a quietly magical tale of cooperation and kindness” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
