Nosey Charlie Comes To Town by Yvonne Blackwood
From the author of Into Africa A Personal Journey, this fascinating picture book about a little black squirrel who comes to live in a big city is perfect for fans of the Curious George stories.
Nosey Charlie is a spunky little squirrel who grew up in the country. He became an orphan and his Aunt Leticia, Uncle Harold, and his Cousin Pete are happy to have him move to the city to live with them in a small park. The park is beautiful with a fountain and a waterfall. It is next door to a large courthouse.
Charlie is fascinated with his new environment and desperately wants to know everything about the people and strange objects in the city as quickly as he can. Aunt Leticia is very protective of Charlie and she constantly warns him to be careful and to stick with Pete, who know his way around, at all times.
Charlie is a good squirrel and doesn’t want to do anything bad, intentionally, but he doesn’t understand that he can’t always go wherever he likes.
Charlie is too nosey, and curiosity gets the better of him. On this occasion he goes where he shouldn’t—checking out garbage bags in the park. The park cleaners are angry, and when they chase Charlie it is poor Cousin Pete who gets hurt.
Nosey Charlie Comes To Town is the first book in the Nosey Charlie Adventure series. The books will make you laugh and sniffle, and sometimes cheer Charlie along as he explores his new environment and finds himself in desperate situations.
