Synopsis

Lexi the squirrel doesn't trust humans. After all, it was a human who abandoned PeeWee the guinea pig in Central Park. So Lexi is outraged when a strange-looking man swipes the apple that the friends were about to eat. But when the stranger rescues PeeWee from the jaws of a dog, Lexi has a change of heart. Can two rodents make a difference in the life of a man living hungry and friendless in Central Park? Welcome back the street-smart squirrel and the well-read guinea pig in this stand-alone companion to PeeWee's Tale, which Publishers Weekly called "humorous and insightful."
