The Golden Acorn

by Katy Hudson
Illustrated by Katy Hudson

Whoosh! Squirrel takes off at full speed through the autumn leaves. But pump the brakes, because this year The Golden Nut Hunt race is a team event. Squirrel reluctantly enlists her friends and is not impressed. Will Squirrel's competitive spirit take over or will she learn how to be a team player? Best-selling author Katy Hudson (Too Many Carrots and A Loud Winter's Nap) proves that winning isn't everything in this energetic picture book about friendship, teamwork, and forgiveness -- and that's something to go nuts about!

Booklist - Connie Fletcher

"Tension builds until the satisfying resolution. The watercolor-and-ink illustrations showcase both the struggles of the cartoon-like creatures and the beauty of the autumnal forest. This delightful story about a hypercompetitive little squirrel delivers a great message in an exciting way. A prize." - Booklist

Kirkus Reviews

"The cadre of compassionate forest critters from A Loud Winter's Nap (2017) returns to prove that teamwork beats going it alone. . . .Set against a rich autumnal backdrop, pumpkin pie, candied apples, and warm woolen scarves pop. Plus, it's hard to imagine any funnier representation of a beaver squeezing through oaken knotholes than this. . . .Come for the cacophony of color and the slapstick..." - Kirkus Reviews
