Stubby and the Squirrel Community
Stubby and the Squirrel Community was first published in 2020 under ReadersMagnet LLC. This is the fifth book published by Attilio Guardo in his entire writing career. This follows the story of Stephan Rovernut, the Mayor of Squirrel Community. One fine day while he was off to work, he became the prey of a hawk. Luckily for Stephan, he survived the attack, but it was unfortunate for him to lose his tail during the ordeal. This incident became a hot topic in the community. Everyone was outraged by this. Stephan even considers this as the Incredible Injustice. Unbeknownst to everyone, another squirrel was planning to overthrow Stephan. This squirrel was none other than Sly Slick, the least liked member of the community. Sly Slick asserts to everyone that Stephan is no longer fit for the position now that he is without a tail. This is his attempt to discredit Stephan to lose his position leaving the mayoral position empty for him to take. Sly Slick became power-hungry and did not plan on stopping until he becomes the next mayor of the squirrel community. Will he be successful with his plot? Will Stephan be able to convince he is still capable with or without his tail?

And now, he has written and published seven books under adult and children’s literature. It was 2004 when he first completed his novel, “A Special Time in Clear Creek.” The year after, he completed the book’s sequel, “Halloween at Clear Creek.” Eventually, he focused on writing children’s books. His grandchildren inspired him to write as they loved his short stories. Guardo believes that if he were allowed to restart his life, he would vigorously pursue a career in the arts and literature.
