"It's 'Saturday Nut Fever', complete with disco ball and lit-up dance floor... Litwin's jaunty rhyming text has an infectious simplicity. Magoon's Adobe Photoshop illustrations are a riot of bright colors and skittish shapes... Parents may well hope that their children don't pick up Hazel's beat -- but they probably will"—Kirkus Reviews
"From the original writer of Pete the Cat comes a new character who won't let anyone stop her from dancing: Hazel Nut.... Children will love the energetic digital illustrations and participatory aspects of the story. A fun and energetic title that will inspire much dancing as well as repeated check-outs."—School Library Journal
Praise for Bedtime at the Nut House
?"[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
