Spencer loves books! He has a special collection right beside his bed. His favourite book is Night-Night, Narwhal which he has his mom or dad read to him every night just before he goes to sleep. One morning he wakes up to find that one of his books is missing.  This goes on for  days until only one of his precious books is left.  Determined to discover who the thief is, Spencer ties his stuffed Narwhal to the book just before he goes to sleep. And, sure enough, the next morning he spies his narwhal zipping out the window.  He follows only to find that a family of squirrels has been taking his books to read.  “Spencer didn’t know squirrels like to read.” He came up with a great idea that would keep his collection intact and still allow the squirrels to enjoy his books – they could borrow them from his library.  The story ends with him reading a story to the squirrels and his little sister.
Upon close inspection of the pictures, the reader will notice that the squirrels leave a gift in trade each time they take a book.  Look carefully at the other illustrations to discover where these gifts come from.  Activities for this book can be found at
