In Roses photographic follow-up to The Secret Life of Squirrels (2014), Mr. Peanuts visits his Cousin Squirrel for Christmas. Mr. Peanutss preparations for the trip include packing his tiny sweaters (handmade by Rose along with many other details in the miniature sets in which she photographs the squirrels) and clearing a path with a tiny snowblower. After he arrives, the two go snowshoeing, build a snowman, roast chestnuts over a campfire, and exchange gifts indoors on Christmas (peanuts, naturally). The story line is straightforward, and some of the images are sharper than others, but the whimsical details of the world Rose has created for her squirrels (a gingerbread train, nut-themed picture books for them to read before a roaring fire) are as amusing as in the previous book. Six gift tags are included. Ages 36. Agent: Jackie Kaiser, Westwood Creative Artists. (Oct.)
