Summary
Two squirrels--and best friends--meet their match: a donut food truck! A hilarious young graphic novel perfect for fans of Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea and anyone who would do ANYTHING for a donut.

Norma and Belly plan to start the day with some pancakes, but when Norma accidentally burns them, these two best friends set out to find a new treat. Chestnuts might be nice . . . but what is that delicious smell in the distance? A new food truck has parked near their tree, and these two squirrels are going to figure out how to get their hands on these "donuts" that it seems to be selling.

Mika Song gives readers something to laugh at as these squirrels try their hardest to get some donuts while just about everything goes wrong. A fun "donut caper" graphic novel that focuses on madcap action, problem-solving, and the power of working together.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "It's been a rollercoaster of a morning for squirrel sisters Norma and Belly. First there were going to be pancakes (queue the Pancake Dance!). Then, the pancakes burned, ruining breakfast. And then, a delicious new smell wafts in the girls' direction. They (and a park's worth of other squirrels) follow the scent to a red food truck that's selling something called donuts. Norma lets out a rallying cry, "Donuts for everyone!" before taking off with Belly to procure the treat with a stack of chestnuts. After some minor gymnastics, the two squirrels perch in front of the order window, request two donuts, and are spritzed with water by the baker for their trouble. Undeterred, Norma and Belly recruit Gramps (the expert in disguise) and Little Bee (the getaway driver) to pull off a donut heist. Song's utterly adorable illustrations feature simple black-ink lines and splashes of watercolor, yet they convey a great deal of action and expression. The squirrels--Belly resembling an elongated tan gumdrop and Norma an angular hourglass--are feisty and tenacious, and their plan to steal a sack of donuts from the truck goes wonderfully awry and leaves the crime scene splattered with batter. Their antics are divided into five short chapters that young readers can read with confidence, and the sweet ending unquestionably satisfies."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This Robin Hood--tinged graphic novel by Song (Love, Sophia on the Moon) gives a blow-by-blow account of a doughnut heist carried out by improbably named squirrels Norma and Belly. Their target? A red doughnut truck run by a grouchy human proprietor who not only spurns payment in chestnuts but also sprays them with a water bottle. If he's not willing to accept honest payment, they conclude, they're justified in turning to crime. Norma (whose head is triangular) and Belly (who's built like a fire hydrant) enlist the help of squirrel colleagues Gramps, who disguises himself as a throwaway coffee cup, and Little Bee, who supplies the getaway roller skate. Their scheme produces doughnuts for everybody, and an unexpected treat for the doughnut purveyor. Drawing with graceful ink lines and colored wash, Song capitalizes on comic moments: the way the spray bottle turns Norma and Belly into unrecognizable floofs, the Rube Goldberg--like machinery of the doughnut maker, and the precariously balanced tower of stolen goods. Norma and Belly are never snarky; instead, they present a consistent mix of enterprise, wit, and cheer. Even the doughnut man emerges as a character who's open to change. Ages 5--8.
