The Squirrels at the Door

Sort by

There were squirrels everywhere, flying around on fabric wings that caught the wind! “You weren’t lying!” Mom said in surprise. Izzie just smiled. “You can bet a makeshift pair of wings that I wasn’t.”

Through the door they saw a big tree house in a really big tree right on their front lawn! “What were these squirrels thinking?!” And where did the tree come from?

A little squirrel army stood outside in all its glory; the squirrels were made from the different the different materials that was collected throughout the day. “B-but…how?!”, the sister sputtered out, her eyes wide in wonder. Izzie just smiled, her lips pulling back into a grin. “It’s a secret, obviously!” Her dad had started to wonder around the miniature squirrels. He paused to stop in front of them. “This is amazing!” But why..?” Izzie smiled again and whispered: “For the squirrels that come to the door sometimes.”

They couldn’t believe what they saw. Four squirrels were standing on top of balls of yarn, with fabric dangling from their ears, tails and furry bodies.

“Is that…” Izzie’s big sister stammered.

Beside the squirrels there was a tiny coat rack made of wood the squirrels had ‘borrowed’. It was painted red.

“Now where’s the-“ Izzie’s dad paused when he saw a bucket of paint wedged inside a tree. Another neighbor came out of their house and then stopped when they saw the squirrels dressed strangely.

“Oh no,” Izzie’s mother whispered.

The squirrels took out the scissors and cut a string. A tree branch fell over. The paint tipped and fell all over the neighbor.

The squirrels chattered to each other a bit, picked up their coat rack, and ran off.

Izzie nodded slowly. “Dad, do you have any more paint? The squirrels asked to borrow some.”

Izzie’s dad, angry from the neighbor incident, said: “Izzie, do you happen to have any towels? The rabbits asked for some.”

The squirrels had to build a new home in the tree in front of Izzie’s home. They used a whole that was plucked at the tree. Unfortunately when Izzie looked inside the tree, she saw nothing but damp wood ( inside was very big ). It was a good thing that she asked her family for all the equipment that was needed to be used.
