Tor Seidler brings the Wainscott woods to life with vivid descriptions of nature and vibrant, charming characters. Fred Marcellino's beautiful illustrations throughout THE WAINSCOTT WEASEL help make this world pop off the page. The story of Bagley and his friends is exciting and unpredictable. Kids will love the colorful assortment of characters, including a family oriented bullfrog, a gorgeous striped bass, and cheerful sparrows.

While keeping kids' attention with suspense and humor, the author also creates characters who are complicated and sophisticated and show kids that not everyone is who you think they are at first; love can be blind, unexpected, and tricky; and you sometimes find friends hidden in places you would never expect.
