In a world where peanuts are born two to a shell, what’s a lonely nut to do?
Meet Paulie, an introvert living a relatively invisible life in the bottom of a nutsack. He knows that one day soon, he will be forced to come face to face with his greatest fears while a bar full of vicious peacocks squawk away.
If Paulie, a shy peanut, doesn’t learn how to sing, he and the nutsack’s inhabitants face the dreaded fate of becoming bar nuts.
An Only Nut is an outlandish story with a simple premise: who are we (animal, vegetable, and mineral) when confronted with our fate? Can we transform for the better or is change just a nutty fantasy?
You may know Sara Becker as the creator of the hilarious animated penguin film, “Snowbirds” or from her satirical essay, “I’m a 200-Year-Old Ghost and I’m Sick of Your Quarantine Whining.” Nothing will prepare you for the randomness, humor, and heart at the core of “An Only Nut.” Things only get wilder when she embodies a nut named Paulie.
Adults deserve picture books, too!
A fantastical little tale full of funny details and heart. At first I was confused by the idea of short stories for adults, and for bedtime at that, but it kind of makes perfect sense once you see it and think about it - why shouldn’t adults get fun picture books, too?! Sweet dreams of singing peanuts!
Read the journey of a brave nut that changed the course of his life. A fun and entertaining read! Even if you have nut allergies, you’ll enjoy this nut.
Comedic genius with unreal illustrations
An Only Nut captures the mind and imagination of all those willing to have fun. Of all those willing to take a journey. An adventure. A pilgrimage of sorts but with a twist. This book was masterfully done by the author and you can tell the publisher/illustrator put their heart and soul into it!
