BOOKS:

Nutti the Squirrel Who Couldn’t Eat Nuts
All squirrels eat nuts, but then Nutti is not your average squirrel. The lovable squirrel can’t wait to try his first nut, but then disaster strikes! Nutti suddenly falls very ill and has to go and see Dr Owl. After looking at his symptoms – from sickness to a tummy ache – it is revealed that Nutti is allergic to nuts. The news is a huge shock to Nutti, who now believes he will never be a real squirrel like his family and friends. Nutti the Squirrel Who Couldn’t Eat Nuts is the first in Caroline Brown’s children’s book series. Already endorsed by both national charity, Allergy UK, and reviewed and given the thumbs up by Anaphylaxis Campaign, it is the perfect informative, and fun, storybook for parents to read with their young children. amazon.com.
