Mama Leticia (his aunt) tries to teach Charlie to be careful, and asks Cousin Pete to keep on eye on him. But Charlie is too nosey, and curiosity gets the better of him. He goes where he shouldn't-checking out garbage bags in the park-and this time poor Cousin Pete gets hurt.
The Nosey Charlie adventures will make you laugh and cry, and sometimes cheer Charlie along as he explores his new environment and finds himself in desperate situations.

A sweet little story which goes in several directions, Nosey Charlie tells of a squirrel orphan and his escape from leaf-rakers in the park. Children who see town squirrels playing will enjoy the playful feel of this story. Their carers might appreciate the quiet reminder that too much play can be a problem. The squirrel family is generous and kind in these pages. The text of the story is easily read, with occasional rhymes that offer occasional surprises. The illustrations are fun—definitely town squirrels, dressed for the place. And there’s even a lesson about how squirrels survive the winter. Disclosure: I got it on a deal.
