Now, about Nosey Charlie!  In her own words, Yvonne states:

Nosey Charlie Comes To Town will entertain and excite young readers from ages 3-8. If they love Curious George, they will adore Nosey Charlie because they have many things in common.  The story is about a spunky little squirrel who grew up in the country. He became an orphan and his Aunt Leticia, Uncle Harold, and his Cousin Pete were happy to have him move to the big city to live with them in a small park. Charlie desperately wants to know everything about the people and strange objects in the city as soon as possible. His aunt warns him to be careful and to stick with Pete at all times, but Charlie doesn’t understand that he can’t always go wherever he likes.
