Adventures of Alice, the Curious Squirrel: A Young Reader's Chapter Book About Embracing Curiosity, Taking Risks, and Seeking Adventure

In the underground town of the prairie squirrels is told the legend of a magic river that granted wishes. If the river was once real, it vanished generations ago. Now, the squirrels must stay in their tunnels or risk being caught by humans, who have moved into and cleared their forest. And so, the whole town hunkers in fear underground—well, all except for young Alice, who is on a quest to find the magical, potentially mythical, river.

Before she was born, her explorer grandfather disappeared, just like the river, on his mission to find it. Alice feels it is her destiny and her family’s legacy to solve the mystery of the river and her missing grandfather. Come along with Alice, the curious squirrel, and her animal friends on their adventure to discover if the magical river ever existed and, if so, what happened to it.
