The Chestnut Challenge is a Mom’s Choice Awards® Gold Recipient. In this Nocturnals Level 3 Early Reader, the Brigade are playing a game of Chestnut Checkers when Chandler, a conniving chinchilla, challenges Tobin for the title of Chestnut Champion. After a series of strange distractions, the Nocturnal Brigade begins to suspect that something is not right. Chandler is a competitive chinchilla... but could he also be a cheater?
