When a squirrel called Jed is picked up by a hawk but manages to escape, his friends Ts-Ts and Chai go after him, navigating outside their realm by using landmarks and "buzzpaths" (power lines). Miraculously, they find Jed, but they also find three humans with noisy equipment they're using to clear tree branches away from the buzzpaths, destroying squirrels' homes in the process. Jed, Ts-Ts, Chai, and their new friend Tchke race home to try to convince everyone to move before the humans come, but their tale is so unbelievable they realize they have to make it into a game in order to mobilize their community.

A marvelous animal adventure tale and survival story, filled with friendship, danger, courage, and squirrel humor.

Audiobook narrated by the incomparable Jessica Almasy (Clementine, Falling In, etc.).

Quotes

One of the newbery winners and, I think, deservedly so. Warning for those who like stories with a clear cut beginning middle and end. This book is more a slice of life, episodes in a group of teenagers lives in the 60’s, most interconnecting through the device of a lost necklace. Nostalgic for me, though earlier than my childhood. Not sure what today’s kids would make of it

I like the unique art, the multimedia scenes. I like the 3 dimensions. The artist di a great job playing with expectations. Would never want to read again.
