The Nutt Family – An Acorny Adventure

By Angela Muse

Illustrated by Ewa Podles

34 pages – ages 4+

Published by CreateSpace on February 25, 2012

The Nutt children, Chess and Praline, loved to have pretend adventures. They wished and wished they would have an adventure of their own. When Chess falls out of their tree home and Praline jumps out to save him, the Nutt children get raked up and their real life adventure begins! Will the Nutt kids survive their nutty adventure?!?

This is a hilarious picture book! I love the names of the Nutt family, Filbert, Hazel, Chess and Praline (come on, that’s FUNNY). The adventure the Nutt kids go on is exciting but not too scary for younger kids. The illustrations are really cool too. The last page of the book has some acorn facts like “Acorns are a food source for pigs, deer, woodpeckers, bears, squirrels and mice, but they are toxic to horses.” 

I think everyone will enjoy this fun read!

Five out of five bookworms!  

I reviewed another great book by Ms. Muse, “Lil’ Glimmer” you can see that review HERE.

    What a fun story for kids, Erik. It you add a nutty activity, pardon the pun, this would be a great entry for the PPB. Susanna many times adds PB books I review to the list.

    What hilarious names….and so clever, I love punny picture books…The illustrations look as funny as the text and I like the idea of having some acorn facts at the back of the book.
