Back of book description:

Twitch the Squirrel and the Forbidden Bridge is a story about a bold, confident squirrel named Twitch who is something of a daredevil...and he doesn't mind when his friends cheer him on! When his parents forbid him to cross an old broken rope bridge across a deep, dark ravine, he doesn't understand why. He can do anything! And there's a tree full of nuts just across the bridge! In this story, Twitch learns the importance of respecting his parents' rules.

“A colorful teaching story about the importance of respecting parents' rules told in jaunty, narrative verse, which helps drive further its appealing and exciting moral to a young childhood audience.”
