The Squirrel Olympics happen almost everyday in a wood near you and even on the washing line in your garden. This childrens’ picture book takes a funny look at Olympic events that squirrels could do. There are traditional events that humans do and a few extra fun ones thrown into the mix to make it thoroughly entertaining and surprising.
After reading this book, you’ll never look at squirrels in the same way again! Every time you spot one you’ll be trying to decide which squirrel olympic event they might be in the middle of!

Hazel Nutt is a baby who is nutty about nature, especially squirrels, whom she often has a good natter with. They tell her their secrets and her parents help her write them down to share with the world, as picture books.
Loving nature is really important to her and Hazel Nutt hopes to make sure that lots of other kids get nutty about nature as well.
She also likes to blog about her observations on life and teach other toddlers how to train their parents.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My parents wondered what I might be looking at when I was staring up at the trees lying in my buggy. The idea came to them that I could be seeing squirrels doing all sorts of things that they just hadn’t noticed. That was the starting point for this picture book and two others.
