May Contain Nuts…

Finished copies of Nuts in Space, the hilarious new picture book by Weasels author-illustrator Elys Dolan have just arrived in the Crow’s Nest, and they look magnificent!

A laugh-out-loud picture book (with a simply stellar story), Nuts in Space is absolutely PACKED with puns, visual gags, and all sorts of detail – this is a book to pore over again and again.

An elite crew of furry animals have found the Lost Nuts of Legend, a mythical snack rumoured to give the bearer unimaginable blessings such as teeth that never need brushing, rooms that never need cleaning and underwear that never needs changing. Now all they have to do is go home, but everyone is starving, the Star Nav is broken, and it was a REALLY bad idea to stop at the Death Banana. Will the crew ever find their way home? And, most importantly, will they get there before someone EATS the Lost Nuts of Legend?

You can take a look inside the book here:

It’s not published until April, but you can pre-order Nuts in Space online here. Elys’ debut book, the Roald Dahl Funny Prize-shortlisted, Greenaway Medal-nominated, and Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-shortlisted Weasels, is out in paperback now – you can order it online here.
