Praise For…

"[A] perfect storytime read... children will ask for it again and again." —School Library Journal

"Magoon's (Spoon) digital illustrations create a boisterous world for the Nut family to inhabit (their home features a ball pit and an observatory... Pete the Cat author Litwin leans heavily on nut related puns (while Wally and Hazel pretend to be astronauts, an off-stage voice announces, "Houston, we have a praline!" as Hazel plants a flag for the "Unutted States")... as it makes its way to a reassuring bedtime conclusion."—Publishers Weekly
