When Sherry retires and moves to a Sun City, Arizona retirement community, she makes a special friend right in her back yard! She is excited to explore all of the nature of her desert. Right away she begins picking lemons to cook with from her desert lemon tree and soon realizes that with her big sunhat and sunglasses, she not only looks like a spy, but is becoming a spy! Her tree begins to whisper to her and they become fast spy friends! What could they possibly look at all day long? What do they hear at night? And Sherry becomes so close to her tree that she must find just the right name for her. You will discover what our desert backyards are like through adorable, comical, wildlife that live a smart but simple life, with messages for children to learn. Told in fun, fact-filled rhyme, it is a great story for a book report, for a scouting badge requirement, and for a desert citizen to send to his/her out-of- town loved ones to help them visualize that faraway backyard.
