Nancy Rose is a singular artist with a very particular vision. And it’s irresistible. First, she handcrafts finely detailed miniature scenes, making all the props herself. Next she sets them up outside and strategically hides nuts in the props. Then she patiently waits behind her camera. And here they come—the neighborhood squirrels! Snap, snap, snap, and without a touch of Photoshop, Nancy captures twelve magical scenes of squirrels acting just like humans: paging through a book at their neighborhood library, pitching a tent for a weekend of camping, playing in a sandbox full of toys. So innocent, so funny, so timeless. Printed on responsibly sourced paper.
Nancy Rose is the author and photographer of The Secret Life of Squirrels picture book series and the Oakley the Squirrel board book series.
