A story by Fiona Faith Ross
Logline: 
A stranded flying squirrel gets mixed up with junk-food obsessed forest animals who annoy the meanest ever junk-food junkie, and prevent him going home.
Synopsis/Details: 

100-page Animation/Adventure/Family Feature. Think "Over The Hedge" (food issues) meets "The Secret Life of Pets" (disruption).

SETTING: Deciduous woodland cut in half by an insanely busy highway. It could be in New England. Our hero lives in Squirrel Wood on one side, where life's rules are simple, if emotionally challenging. In the forest on the other side, a bunch of damaged animals lurk in a hut to survive the winter, until humans build a new gas station/diner, lead the animals to an obsession with junk food and the dangers of the commercial bakery.

MAIN CHARACTERS:
DUGGAN: (Juvenile) Duggan, our hero, is a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed flying squirrel who lost his Ma on the highway when he was small, shaking his confidence, but still, Duggan’s a fighter.
CHARLIE: (Young Teen) A button-eyed gopher, Charlie is Duggan's best buddy and sidekick.
BERYL: (Young Teen) Charlie's resourceful younger sis, always looking for goodies to stuff in her backpack.
GROSS DAISY: (Middle-Aged) Antagonist. Did time in a test-lab, super-sized albino rabbit with a broken heart, meanest-ever donut junkie, who won't tolerate any threat to her supply.

Book Publication Date: 28 June 2018
