Crime Squirrel Investigators: The Naughty Nut Thief
Rosie’s secret hazelnut store has been ransacked and her best friend Charlie agrees to help her to find the naughty nut thief.

Help the two squirrels discover the naughty nut thief and learn about the different ways animals eat nuts along the way!
