This is the second book in the Evolution Revolution middle grade series. After leading the battle against the construction machines to save his woods, Jack the squirrel continues visiting his human friend, Collin. He brings Sister, and Bird, who can copy Collin's words. This allows Jack to 'talk' to Collin. When Jack shares what he learns with the other woodland animals, Fox wants no part of learning anything human. Rat is too busy teasing the humans who spy on the animals. When Rat gets tagged and caged, Jack has to figure out how to save him while avoiding the humans who want most to capture him--and won't stop until they do.
Based on school science curriculum, this book has been crafted as a work of fantasy fiction, but holds additional educational appeal and can be tied into STEM (Science - evolution, biology; Technology - motorized RC car; Engineering - simple machines) in an accessible and fun new way.
