Mr. Wellington by David Rabe

Mr. Wellingtonis the first children's book written by playwright David Rabe. It's about a lost squirrel and the boy who finds him. The story is told alternatively from the point of view of the squirrel (Mr. Wellington) and the boy (Jonathan) who rescued him.

The book is aimed at ages 6-10 and is nicely illustrated by Robert Andrew Parker.

I found it very enjoyable and finished reading it in one sitting. I think this would be a very good book to give your children; it entertains but also teaches them what to do if they ever come across a lost baby squirrel or any other wild animal.

I hope we see more children's stories from Mr. Rabe.
