A little bit about the book:
Even though his woods are safe from the construction machines, Jack the squirrel can’t go back. The scientists who captured Rat, and his sister’s mate Jerk, are searching for him-and show up at his human friend Collin’s house. To save Jack, Collin and his mother take him to a sanctuary. There, Jack meets Addy and other rescued squirrels, along with Horse and a group of barnyard animals. Collin visits, bringing Mina the talking bird, and teaches Jack the last simple machines: the pulley, the lever, and the gear. Jack shares what he learns with Addy, but Hawk and the scientists are hot after him. One final battle between humans and animals erupts. If Jack wins, he’ll have to run away from everything he knows. If he loses, he will never be free.
