Mary Meriam's Nuts in Nutland, delightfully illustrated by Hannah Barrett, is a joyful poetic adventure through an imagined domain populated by nuts and the occasional legume. Offering a message that emphasizes the importance of accepting differences and versed in playful rhymed couplets, Nuts in Nutland uses language and imagery both inviting and educational for a young reader. Presenting a simple story in a dynamic and rhythmical manner, and with colorful, fun illustrations accompanying the poem, Nuts in Nutland is an entertaining new entry in the long tradition of poetry for children, reminiscent at moments of the verses to be found in Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland or of T.S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats in its wit and charm.

Nuts in Nutland joyfully reminds us that we are all connected. That love, earth, and sustenance grow in tandem whether we recognize it or not.
