About This Item

London England: BBC Books. Fine/Very Good. 1979. First Edition. Cloth. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall Octavo 0563176393 Hardback Hardcover. First Edition. Squirrel on my Shoulder. Very slight shelf wear to top edge of D/J. This book is the result of a remarkable natural history film study of the grey squirrel carried out by John Paling of Oxford Scientific Films for the BBC Wildlife on One television series. The star of the film was a squirrel nicknamed 'Sammy'. He was found abandoned by his mother only a few days old; blind and without fur, he was utterly helpless. His chances of survival were few until he was adopted by a cat family. The mother cat accepted him and fed him as one of her own kittens. Sammy's life as a 'squitten' was unusual and not without its humorous adventures. Beautifully illustrated in colour and black and white this volume will please both the amateur and the serious natural history lover. Illustrated. 147 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. Academic and Scholarly books and Modern First Editions ,and all types of Educational Reference Literature.) .
