Happy yay-it-is-almost-the-weekend-day, aka Wednesday. Welcome to a new Waiting on Wednesday, this week it is filled with squirrels.
This week I got a book named Squirreled away, which is already one reason why I put the book on my Goodreads Eep-2019 shelf. The next reason is that the blurb sounds hilarious. So our MC finds some petrified squirrels? Smuggles them with him? What could possibly go wrong in this situation? I can already see plenty of things go wrong, hilariously that is. I am guessing the squirrels come back to life, and I wonder if they can talk and if they can adjust to this new age.
Oh, and there are illustrations! If the cover is any indication it means I will be in for tons of fun.
Ten-year-old Michael and his friend Justin sneak into the Dead Sea caves near the archaeological dig where Michael’s dad is working. Michael finds two 2,000-year-old squirrels petrified in sea salt. Hijinks ensue as Michael tries to bring them back to the U. S., hidden in his backpack. What Michael thinks are just cool souvenirs may turn out to be something much more!
