A picture book about a timid squirrel who makes a brave journey to help a relative who is ill.

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.

Along the way, Evergreen is met by other forest dwellers—some want to help her, but some want her mother’s delicious soup!

Readers will delight in this classic tale of bravery and love from Caldecott Medalist and New York Times bestselling creator Matthew Cordell.
