An utterly nutterly book all about sharing!

When a little squirrel finds a big pile of nuts, he is VERY excited! But soon he is joined by another squirrel . . . and this squirrel thinks the nuts belong to HER. And when Mouse, Bear and Badger get involved, well, things get VERY confusing indeed! They won’t even listen to wise Rabbit. Will the quarrelsome squirrels ever learn to share?

This is a hilarious and deceptively simple story with a comically delivered message about learning to share, perfect for fans of Jon Klassen, Kes Gray and Ed Vere. Lou Peacock cleverly introduces little ones to pronouns – are they my nuts, your nuts, his nuts, her nuts, their nuts or our nuts?

Nuts features wonderfully energetic artwork by V&A-award-winning illustrator Yasmeen Ismail, creator of Time for Bed, Fred! Yasmeen also won The New York Times Best Illustrated Book award and was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

– Baby Magazine

“Ismail’s exuberant, wash-like mixed-media illustrations are a perfect match for this high-energy tale about two squirrels who discover that “our” can be just as rewarding as “my.”

“Featuring an engaging animal cast, this amiable, read-aloud-friendly picture book tackles a subject, including concepts of possessiveness and the mutual rewards of generosity, in an approach that will likely resonate with the younger set.”
