"When seven-year-old Marcus befriends Squizzy, the only black squirrel in Fairmont Park, he learns that using color to describe one's friends is silly. Red, brown and gray squirrels all play together with Squizzy and happily share their squirrel lives in the park."
Squizzy the Black Squirrel: A Fabulous Fable of Friendship is illustrated with full color reproductions of oil paintings by Appalachian artist Jeannie Jackson.
