Flat Squirrel
by Fiona Faith Ross

In a land similar to New England, humans cut down the biggest beech tree and threaten the flying squirrels’ nut supply. Duggan worries they'll starve. To find more, he crosses the busy highway and he almost gets flattened by a motorbike.

He meets new friends in the forest who help him out, when they're not fighting over a carrot or potato from their vegetable patch. Charlie gopher wants to raid the green bin, which contains yummy leftovers from the new diner and gas station. It's food heaven for the gopher kids, but the grown-ups forbid it. They think human food is bad for everyone. Mother gopher Violet worries her kids will get caught, but Charlie says it won't happen. "We skedaddle faster than a grizzly with a skunk after it."

All Duggan wants to do is to get home. He builds devices to cross the highway but it's harder than he thought. The animals raid the commercial bakery, which churns out an endless feast of cakes and the flour, fat, sugar combo changes everything. FFS, these doughnuts are so tasty! Gopher twins Luca and Milo power up the metal pathway and Milo falls in the dough hopper.

Can Duggan get them out of there? Fatter from stuffing doughnuts, the animals don’t move as fast as they used to. They annoy Gross Daisy, the meanest-ever junk-food junkie. She will not have any threat to her cake supply and she'll pancake the little varmints if she catches them.
