Evergreen the squirrel is afraid of many things: thunder, hawks, and the dark paths of Buckthorn Forest. But when her mother tasks Evergreen with delivering soup to her sick Granny Oak, the little squirrel must face her fears and make the journey.

Using an art style reminiscent of the work of William Steig and Arnold Lobel, Caldecott medal winner Matthew Cordell creates a classic tale of bravery and love.
