This is the story of my hero, Earl the Squirrel, from my first book. Earl lives in the forest and decides to go visit his cousin Sid, who used to live down in Battery Park in New York, until the tragic events of 9/11. The story revolves around Earl's trip, along with his friend Ollie Owl and the different animals they meet along the way to finding Sid Squirrel and Grandma Pearl Squirrel, who moved Uptown to Harlem, after the Towers came down. Earl rides on the back of Ollie Owl, across the Hudson River and land down in Battery Park. They get directions from various characters, along the way, until they finally find Sid Squirrel. They learn that Sid's parents were lost on that terrible day. They all learn a valuable lesson at the end when they finally join Earl's Squirrel family relatives. It's all fun and exciting, as well as loving and sensative at the end.
