Title: The Golden Acorn
Author: Katy Hudson
Illustrator: Katy Hudson
Squirrel loves winning and has a prize collection of trophies from the annual Golden Acorn Hunt to prove it. But this year the rules have changed: Squirrel must compete as part of a team. Running out of time, Squirrel reluctantly teams up with her friends but has she really grasped what being part of a team means? And when the finish line is in sight, Squirrel must decide if it’s the trophy or her friends that are the real prize…
The illustrations hooked me in this book and elevated the story. There really was something to enjoy in every spread of this book. I loved Squirrels trophy shelf which had a special place ear-marked for her next trophy.
I really enjoyed this book. Katy’s illustrations are on-the-money and made this book stand out for me over other picture books which feature the same theme. Overall, a lovely picture book with fantastic illustrations that will put a smile on your face.
