The Nuts: Sing and Dance In Your Polka Dot Pants
Hazel Nut wants her family to sing and dance along with her, but they are just too busy! Who can she call? Why...her super-hip, disco-dancing Grandma Nut! The second book of the Nuts series.
Saturday Nut Fever.
The nuts hit the dance floor! In my second book with Eric Litwin (Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes) Little Hazel Nut would love to sing and dance with her family—but they're busy, busy, busy. Oh, no! There is one Nut family member though who answers the call—groovy Grandma Nut! Once Hazel and Grandma put the needle on the record an epic Nut Family dance party ensues and the Nuts are together again. Run—don't moonwalk—to your nearest bookseller/library and get your tiny dancers a copy today.
THE NUTS: Sing and Dance in Your Polka Dot Pants, published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers is available as a totally rocking interactive eBook version as well, only at the Apple iBooks store for use on your iPad, iPhone or Mac.

The Dance Contest
To help get everyone excited for our book together, author Eric Litwin created the Polka Dot Pants Dance contest. The response was overwhelming—over 20,000 kids sang and danced in their Polka Dot Pants to win a free school visit from Eric Litwin....wow!
Polka Dot Pants Dance craze is sweeping the nation! Here's one of 80 videos created to celebrate the Polka Dot Pants Dance contest...if you look carefully you might spot me in this one.
