Wildlife photographer Nancy Rose made the Internet collectively coo in 2013 with her first picture book, The Secret Life of Squirrels, in which she photographed squirrels on handmade sets in her backyard. Now, she and her unwitting stars, Mr. Peanuts and Cousin Squirrel, are back with a holiday picture book, Merry Christmas, Squirrels! EW presents your exclusive reveal of the Merry Christmas, Squirrels! trailer above, where you can see the way Rose skillfully hides peanuts throughout the sets to get the squirrels to “act.”
See below for more detail on Rose’s process, from publisher Little, Brown:
Merry Christmas, Squirrels! is available in stores now.
