This is an adventurous story that centers on the life of Timothy Patrick Horrigan, who is a chipmunk. Timothy, who is unnamed at this point, is chased out of his home in the dead of the night by a fire and finds shelter in the wood pile outside of house that is home to Vietnam veteran Mikey Horrigan. Mikey takes and comforts Timothy as well as gives him his name. Timothy grows fond of his new home and roommates who are mice.

As time passes, a new family moves in next door and is rude and disrespectful to Mikey and all the animals. They also call Timothy "Chip," which he doesn't like. The animals decide to wage a war against these new humans. Timothy runs into many trials when trying to fight them off. Read more of Timothy's heroic fight in Don't Call Me Chip.  


This is an exciting and fun book about a strong-willed chipmunk that wants to fight for his human and for the safety of all the animals in the woods. This is a great book that keeps you wondering what will happen next. The plot flows smoothly, and the words used eloquently describe with detail the bold and fearless Commander Timothy. The only detriment to this book is the slight use of colorful language to describe certain events. Overall, however, the book is amazing and gives insight to life as an animal.
