Fred and the Lumberjack

Fred and the Lumberjack by Steven Weinberg features one of the world’s most adorable beavers. Fred has just finished his dream den, made largely from birch trees and handsome indeed. He feels that something is missing and it nags him he can’t figure out what it could be. Then he hears a roar in the forest and discovers a kindred soul named Sophia. After an inadvertently disastrous effort to impress her they are off and running with plans for a dreamboat and more. The exuberant illustrations are a hoot.
