An animated heist adventure with a nutty difference.

Winter is coming and there’s a food shortage. The animals of Liberty Park, Oakton, are hungry. But there is hope: Maury's Nut Store, a goldmine of food for all (including the wonder of peanut brittle). But how to get at it? It's up to Surly the squirrel, Precious the pug and Buddy the rat to break into Maury's and steal enough food for the whole park. But there's more to this simple nut shop than meets the eye... [PG]
