Stripe was born in the spring in a snug nest two feet underground, for he was a baby chipmunk, not bigger than a bumblebee. By the following spring he was grown-up. The adventures of the intervening months are told here vividly and accurately.

Because Mr. McClung is a scientist as well as an artist in words and pictures, he not only re-creates the dewy freshness of Stripe's first April, he also shows what a marvelously well-equipped creature the chipmunk is. Stripe knew how to build a home and fill it with food that he carried there in patient, repeated trips; his bulging cheeks would hold two acorns, five hazlenuts, or fifteen kernels of corn apiece.

The text is set in large easy-to-read type. Besides helping to tell the story, the stunning pictures, many of them in color, portray the plants and animals in a chipmunk's world.
