About Squirrel

Squirrel loves a good acorn.

But not all acorns are good. Some are downright second rate.

And Squirrel is fussy like that.

Under the light of the sun, between the houses and the offices, and the rivers and the factories, Squirrel has buried their favourite acorn collection.

It’s easy to remember where; it’s under the third tree from the left.

Or was it the right? Oh hang on a minute…

This is a story of new growth and new beginnings with a sprinkling of magic and puppetry to charm audiences of every age! Recommended for children aged 6 months to 4 years who are actively encouraged to take part in the show.
