Author Tom Burckardt’s new book ‘The Happy Chipmunk’ is a humorous story about a happy chipmunk

The Happy Chipmunk" from Newman Springs Publishing author Tom Burckardt is an amusing tale of Chip

Tom Burckardt, who spent his professional career in software development, has completed his new book, “The Happy Chipmunk”: a cute story about a confused little chipmunk. Burckardt spends much of his time tending his garden and roomy backyard. He loves animals both in his home and in his backyard and finds it amusing to imagine how humans must appear to them.


The story is cleverly illustrated by Colleen Dopico, an emerging Hudson Valley artist with her master’s in fine arts from CUNY Lehman. She is an NYS-certified teacher and teaches high school digital art.


Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Burckardt’s whimsical tale takes readers inside the mind of a chipmunk who mistakes a homeowner’s attempts to keep him out of the garden and shed as acts of kindness from a friend looking out for him. Chip is happy to have a friend … but is his friend also happy? Chip’s needs are wonderfully met by his friend’s backyard, but is that what the friend actually intended? 


Told from Chip’s point of view, this tongue-in-cheek story is perfect for readers of all ages to share together, as they see that there are two sides to every story, and think about what our four-legged friends have going on inside their own heads. 


Readers who wish to experience this whimsical work can purchase “The Happy Chipmunk” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
