Please, No More Nuts
First sentence: One nut. Two nuts. Three nuts. Four nuts. Here are four nuts. Please take more nuts!
Premise/plot: Two squirrels who are TIRED of nuts try to convince readers to take some nuts.
My thoughts: This one is a follow up to a book titled We Need More Nuts! Sadly, I have not read the first book. Though I put both books on hold on the exact same day. Though both books were listed as being on the shelf. I put off reading....and reviewing...this one for over a week hoping that the first book would appear on my hold shelf. I'm beginning to think it might be shelved in the wrong spot or missing altogether. I might have to go on a book hunt.
As for the book itself, I think it would be a LOT more enjoyable if one was already familiar with these two. I think some of the comedy is lost jumping straight into the second book. That being said, I can see the intent is humor. I do like the rhyming! It's very well done.
