This is a wonderful story of a young weasel, Bagley, whose father was famous in the weasel community. Because of his father and the eypatch that he wears, Bagley is famous in his world. But Bagley isn't happy. He is in love with a beautiful fish. The story is well told, and makes a wonderful read-aloud to children. The illustrations are great. My children enjoyed the story, and it made for some great talks about loving someone who isn't like you.
from the back cover:
"Written with grace and great good humor, The Wainscott Weasel is a ollicking adventure, a comedy, a love story, and most assuredly a book that will live on in children's memories."
