About the Book

Over many years, wildlife has been accustomed to visiting an area where a busy and expanding university campus is now located. Food sources and safety issues continue to entice animals to venture upon these grounds. Will humans always share spaces with the animals, or will the animals be pushed out? One day, Little Armored One enjoys the usual fanciful adventures, socializes, and hunts for food on campus. However, this day is far from ordinary. As the reader will learn, the armadillo and the other animals discover something of great importance about their future.
