The book starts out with a chipmunk and a squirrel making fun of eachother then out of the ground pops an acorn. The acorn disappears as quickly as it appears. The chipmunk and the squirrel end up waking up the badger because of the ruckus they were making about the acorn. More animals join in and they all want the magic acorn. The acorn reappears and they try to decide who should get the acorn. They decide their should be a competition to see who gets it. Badger says they should race so all the animals start racing and hedgehog rolls through all the animals. Badger decides this is not fair and they will have to start over again this time no rolling through the other animals. The animals heard a noise coming from the acorn when it reappeared. They all thought it was a magic nut. The nut was saying help the animals all pulled on the nut and off the nut came from a mole's head. The mole was so happy for the other animals help he shared the other nuts he and been collecting with the animals.
This is a good example of a fiction book because animals can’t talk. It is highly unlikely you would see these animals altogether in the wilderness let alone working together.

Genre: This book is a fantasy. It is a fantasy because the animals in the story talk and are friends. In the real world this does not happen. There is a bit of truth to the story as well. Often times we fight over the silliest things and don't even realize it. In this particular story it was a nut. Overall this is a good fantasy because there are elements of truth and non-reality in the story.

Age: Intermediate/Primary

Media: Pastel

This book is a great example of fantasy because all of the animals can talk. They are in a realistic setting and the nature of their "argument" is realistic but they are able to converse with one another.
Plot: The plot of this book is great because it builds up so much suspense to the climax. The beginning, middle, and end of this story are all essential and it has a good story line.
Art Media: Watercolor.

I think the book is very cute and would be enjoyable for kids. I like the use of big vocabulary words and they can be used on vocabulary tests. I love how colorful the book is and its illustrations are very nice.
