November 2017 Book of the Month

This beautifully presented story of a hazelnut buried beneath the snow, not noticed by any creature, will take you on a journey through the changing of the seasons until it emerges as a tree in the spring. The artwork is simply stunning and the paper engineering not only brings the story to life but will delight readers young and old. This will not only be a wonderful book to share but a beautiful keepsake too. ~ Shelley Fallows - You can also find Shelley here.


Little Hazelnut by Anne-Florence Lemasson

Squirrel drops a precious hazelnut and the snowfall buries it. The woodland animals and birds come and go, but no-one finds the nut - and in the spring a little tree sprouts in its place. A beautiful, collectible, pop-up with a simple, charming text, illustrating the passing of the seasons in a woodland landscape. Stunning, graphic artwork in a limited colour palette and superb paper engineering make this a collectible for children and adults alike.
