Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk

A chipmunk dating a squirrel, a curious owl, a violent rabbit, and vomit-eating flies are just some of the characters you’ll meet in this collection of short stories by David Sedaris . Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk is a less than cute set of tales and should not be confused with children’s stories.  Many would be quite disturbing for young minds and probably not for those without a taste for grim overtones.  I would guess Sedaris’ works parallels the tales of the Brothers Grimm’s works before they were “Disneyed” and toned down for young audiences.  The book was enjoyable thought not for everyone.
