The Nocturnals: The Chestnut Challenge


Tracey Hecht


In The Chestnut Challenge, a Grow & Read early reader book, the Nocturnal Brigade—Tobin, a sweet pangolin, Bismark, a loud-mouthed sugar glider, and Dawn, a serious fox—are playing a game of Chestnuts when Chandler, a conniving chinchilla, challenges Tobin for the title of Chestnut Champion. However, after a series of strange distractions have occurred, the animals begin to suspect that something is not quite right. Chandler is a competitive chinchilla...but could he also be a cheater?
As the story unfolds, readers will delight in an entertaining animal adventure while learning about the themes of playing games for fun and displaying good sportsmanship.

Bonus content includes illustrated "Nocturnals Fun Facts" about the pangolin, sugar glider, fox, chinchilla and more!
