In this third book of the award-winning Chippy Chipmunk series, Chippy experiences the loss of his best friend Pickle, a meadow vole. Chippy's friends help him both to express his grief and also learn to accept and be at peace with the fate of his pal. While Chippy hibernates, owls appear in magical dreams to offer words of comfort. By springtime, Chippy emerges with a renewed sense of hope and begins to believe that life really does get better. The delicately woven story line is illustrated with beautiful nature photography. An activity page, fun facts, and notes to parents and educators are included.
