This is one of a series that focuses on animals found within the UK. Each book examines an individual animal, explaining what that animal looks like, where it lives, what type of home it lives in, what it eats, mating, young and growing up. The books introduce readers to the issues of endangerment and conservation. A map shows the distribution of the animal throughout the UK. This volume explores the squirrel, an animal regarded as being cute by some and vermin by others.
