Nosey Charlie Comes To Town is a fabulous story. Charlie breezes into the city and right away he goes on an exploration! I love the themes in the story—love by family, friendship with 
cousin, a change of environment, move from rural to urban, learning new things, and exploring. Poor Pete suffers for it this time. I hope he can overcome!

This second book in the Nosey Charlie Adventure series is even better than the one before. It is fascinating how this over curious little squirrel goes about checking things out. I was rooting for him and was so relieved when he returned home safely! Kids can’t help but enjoy the suspense!

Shouldn't Be Here!

I received a copy of this from the author through the Goodreads Giveaway program. This was the first book I've read by this author.
My four year old grandson really liked this book. He said 'We need to keep it!'
There are opportunities within the book to discuss terms and words that are used in Canada and compare them to those we use in the U.S. There is definitely a moral to the story and a chance to 
discuss'cause and effect.'

A sweet little story which goes in several directions, Nosey Charlie tells of a squirrel orphan and his escape from leaf-rakers in the park. Children who see town squirrels playing will enjoy the playful feel of this story. Their carers might appreciate the quiet reminder that too much play can be a problem.
The squirrel family is generous and kind in these pages. The text of the story is easily read, with occasional rhymes that offer occasional surprises. The illustrations are fun—definitely town squirrels, dressed for the place. And there’s even a lesson about how squirrels survive the winter.

Charlie grew up in the country with his parents. When he is orphaned his aunt and uncle take him to their city home. Charlie has a bit of difficulty adjusting to his new, cramped and noisy surroundings. He does enjoy his adventures with his cousin, Pete. One day, Charlie's curiosity gets the better of him. He annoys the park cleaners who chase the animals with rocks. Pete is injured and Charlie feels bad, but he is forgiven.
This beginning chapter book contains charming dialogue and portrays a loving animal family. Charlie learns a valuable lesson and readers are given a glimpse into the seasonal lives of the squirrel family. I would recommend the book for early readers in the five to eight-year-old age group. My only complaint is the small size of the text which may be difficult for young children.

Nosey Charlie Comes to Town is a delightful story about a charming little squirrel. it has all the elements that a young child can relate to. Charlie has lost his mom and dad but he is not alone, his aunt and uncle -a careful couple - takes care of him like their own. He has a cousin his age to play with, and he has a new home with wonderful new things to explore! I can see where the series of stories has great potential and with the author's imagination, the books will go a long way!

In this cute little 
book we are reunited with Nosey Charlie and his family in the park where they live. As in the first book, the illustrations are lovely and will delight any child. In this adventure, Nosey Charlie lets his curiosity get the better of him when he sneaks away from his family and leaves the park to investigate a nearby courthouse. As you would imagine, a squirrel is not very welcome in a courthouse, and Charlie is lucky to be reunited with his family at the end of the book, lesson learned (or was it?).

Just when I thought we’d seen and read it all in children’s books
Ms Blackwood conjures up another idea—fascinating. Young country squirrel comes to live in the city, exciting things to explore, young cousin is an accomplice, uncle and aunt care deeply, all ends well.

Lots of squirrel fun for kids packed in here.

This daffy little story about a nosey squirrel kept me and two small boys amused for a good hour. Why? There is a neat bonus of colouring pages from the book. I printed a few choice ones and as we went through the story I built drama by asking the boys what would happen next. I created some excitement around drawing alternative scenarios for the poor squirrel with the wiener problem.
The author impressed me by using the technology to blend good old-fashioned reading with downloads that enhanced the experience. My six and eight-year-old listeners loved drawing grisly endings for Charlie! And colouring him vividly.
The message about listening to warnings is delivered in a way that little kids will absorb.
