But someone is going around killing squirrels, and oddly, it seems his family's dark past has something to do with it. Mabby recruits his friends to find out the connection, and must race against time and his own inner battles to find out the truth before it's too late.
How could a little handful of misfit squirrel pups do anything about the dark shadows? And further, how can Mabby succeed in his pursuit of major airtime and general awesomeness, with such awful and annoying distractions, like conspiracy and murder?
School sucks. It sucks for squirrels, too.
If you loved the grim delight of Watership Down, the playful style of T. H. White's The Sword in the Stone, or the breathtaking worldbuilding of Redwall, you'll love joining Mabby, Dorma, Tufa, Deela, Syriss and Bo on the appropriately awkward journey of learning how to use their wings, in Mabby the Squirrel’s Guide to Flying!
Disclaimer: There are only a few books representing Aspergers and learning disability in young people, especially stories that illustrate Asperger's symptoms. Mabby The Squirrel's Guide to Flying is an inspiring and encouraging story about high functioning autism in the metaphor of a city of flying squirrels, for the child and parent of children with high functioning autism by one who found a way. Because it's about time.
Because learning disabilities are just as much about the family, Mabby is a generational fable written for a wide age range, recommended for young adults and up. It is set in a fictional world and does not require knowledge about the inner subject matter in order to be enjoyed by all.
