Lisa Horstman, author and illustrator for such popular children's books as The Great Smoky Mountain Salamander Ball
and The Troublesome Cub
has outdone herself this time with Sabrina: A Great Smoky Mountains Story
Sabrina is the tale of a special kind of squirrel who finds herself in a strange new home after a run in with an owl. Follow along as Sabrina learns how to survive, and then thrive, in her new environment. Sabrina and her ilk are denizens of the rich and rare spruce-fir forest that clings to the Smokies highest peaks.
Horstman's adorable illustrations are the result of a technique she has pioneered using handmade "puppets" and her usual whimsical style of painting. A perfect "sit on my lap and I'll read you a story" book.
