When Merle Squirrel’s tree mate, Stella Jay, becomes grouchier than her usual nature, Merle spends a week of misery. Nothing he does pleases her. She complains about every move he makes. Merle has a choice of leaving his tree to find another home or to face Stella. When he finally faces his tormenter, he finds the reason for her behavior.
