The Tale of HiberNation, the Odd Chipmunk tells of the feelings we all have experienced in getting to know life, and being accepted in our world. Generally all turns out fine. This was not the case for HiberNation, however, a little chipmunk who was shunned and made fun, laughed at, and called names by the members of his chipmunk community. He was considered different and odd, because...he slept too much. Day and night, in school or at home, HiberNation slept. He slept even more when his feelings were hurt. He refused to go to school because of how he was mistreated. Lonely and friendless, HiberNation became very depressed. But, alas, life always has a perfect answer, and the answer for HiberNation's problem can be found in this chaming tale, one critics have compared to "classics," as well as the beloved Aesop's Fables.
