Nutti the Squirrel Who Couldn’t Eat Nuts

Mother of two, Caroline Brown was inspired to write and raise awareness of the importance of nut allergies after a scary incident on a family holiday. Back in 2010 her son Callum, now seven years old, was enjoying an ice-cream when he suddenly went into anaphylactic shock and was rushed to a hospital where he was administered a dose of adrenalin. After a number of tests, her son was diagnosed with a tree nut and peanut allergy which meant that he was unable to eat not only peanuts but also lentils and peas. Initially, Caroline found it difficult to explain to her son that he couldn’t eat all the things his friends ate including sharing sweets and snacks. She soon realized that it wasn’t just parents, and adults in a position of care, that needed informing but the children themselves, and their friends, in order to promote understanding and acceptance, thus the idea for Nutti the Squirrel Who Couldn’t Eat Nuts was born.

Nutti the Squirrel Who Couldn’t Eat Nuts is an educational picture book on the importance of understanding nut allergies and features a young squirrel that becomes sick after eating a meal with his family. Dr. Owl takes a look at his symptoms to reveal that Nutti is allergic to nuts.

Brought to life by bright and modern illustrations, Nutti the Squirrel Who Couldn’t Eat Nuts is the first in Caroline Brown’s children’s book series. Already endorsed by both national charity, Allergy UK and reviewed and given the thumbs up by Anaphylaxis Campaign it is the perfect informative, and fun, storybook for parents to read with their young children as well as for primary school teachers and extended families.

Caroline has attracted many interest and has collaborated with a nut free chocolate company and created a Nutti the Squirrel themed chocolate, available from Nut Free Chocolate People.

Nutti the Squirrel Who Couldn’t Eat Nuts by Oswald Publishing is available on Amazon, $7.72 paperback, $8.99 ebook. For more information, visit nuttithesquirrel.com.
