Mr. Peanuts is an unusual squirrel. He likes to grill hot dogs on his tiny grill. He plays the piano beautifully. He likes to read (his favourite books are A Tail of Two Cities and Good Night, Nut ). But once in a while he feels lonely. One day, he writes a letter to Cousin Squirrel to invite him to visit, and to his great joy, Cousin Squirrel agrees! It turns out that Cousin Squirrel is an unusual squirrel, too, and Mr. Peanuts realizes that having a friend makes everything twice as fun.
