Boogie down with singer-songwriter Eric Litwin — author of the first three mega-bestselling Pete the Cat books and the hilarious Nut Family series — as he invites readers to chime in and join the nutty, pun-filled fun! A downloadable song is also available.

Hazel Nut wants her family to sing and dance along with her, but they are just too busy! Who can she call? Why… her super-hip, disco-dancing Grandma Nut! In the second book of the Nuts series, Eric Litwin's playful call-and-response rhymes and Scott Magoon's hilarious illustrations invite readers young and old to join in on the fun. Readers can listen to and/or download Litwin's disco-inspired performance of the book and additional songs at

  • "It's 'Saturday Nut Fever', complete with disco ball and lit-up dance floor... Litwin's jaunty rhyming text has an infectious simplicity. Magoon's Adobe Photoshop illustrations are a riot of bright colors and skittish shapes... Parents may well hope that their children don't pick up Hazel's beat -- but they probably will"
    Kirkus Reviews
  • "From the original writer of Pete the Cat comes a new character who won't let anyone stop her from dancing: Hazel Nut.... Children will love the energetic digital illustrations and participatory aspects of the story. A fun and energetic title that will inspire much dancing as well as repeated check-outs."
    School Library Journal
  • Praise for Bedtime at the Nut House

    ​"[A] perfect storytime read... children will ask for it again and again." - School Library Journal

    "Magoon's (Spoon) digital illustrations create a boisterous world for the Nut family to inhabit (their home features a ball pit and an observatory.... Pete the Cat author Litwin leans heavily on nut-related puns (while Wally and Hazel pretend to be astronauts, an off-stage voice announces, "Houston, we have a praline!" as Hazel plants a flag for the "Unutted States")... as it makes its way to a reassuring bedtime conclusion." - Publishers Weekly
