PreSchool-Grade 3 - When a nut suddenly juts out of a hole in the ground, two squirrels make such a racket arguing over which one should get to eat it that they disturb all the other animals in the area. Badger decrees that a race will decide the winner, but before the event is completed, the nut disappears. It abruptly protrudes from the ground a bit farther away, then vanishes and emerges again. All this appearing and disappearing has the group baffled and considering the possibility of "magic," until the squirrels combine efforts and pull it out of the hole. What they discover is a nutshell and a mole that was despairing of ever ridding himself of the bothersome thing stuck on his head. Everyone is dejected to find that the shell is empty, but Mole is so grateful that he shares his store with the others. Spreads in soft watercolors of browns, greens, and blues feature a community of endearing critters. An entertaining romp. - Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
