About the Book
April is National Poetry Month—Celebrate!

"Frisky brisky

"Hippity hop

"Up he goes

"To the treetop"

With their hurrying and scurrying, digging, climbing, and leaping, squirrels fascinate young children.

In Frisky Brisky Hippity Hop, photographer Murray Head captures squirrels working, playing, hiding, and even teasing a hawk.

A joy to read aloud, this peppy rhyming poem is based on an 1871 poem by Alexina B. White, with new verses by Susan Lurie. Alexina B. White's son was the architect Standford White.
