The NestleBurrow Chronicles
Welcome to the Burrow
by Nan Conta and Max Steencken

Welcome to NestleBurrow, a tiny woodland village filled with kind and loving folks, busy living life deep in the secluded northern woods.

For the villagers of the Burrow, life is real, but not all that complicated. Folks in the village are known for who they are, what they do, and how they value one another. The NestleBurrow Chronicles is a running conversation about people, their reactions to life’s adventures, and whimsical situations they encounter.

Readers join Tommy Racoon and his friends as they learn the lessons of everyday life, like making and keeping friends, being kind and supportive, and tackling challenging projects. The animals of the Burrow aren’t afraid of stepping in when they have to be brave, or making something right when it’s been put wrong. They know how to get along with all kinds of folks, no matter how different they may be.

Max Steencken called his grandmother, Nan Conta, and asked if she could teach him to draw over Zoom. From his living room in New York and her back garden in Oregon, the two began the adventure of drawing and storytelling that would lead to The NestleBurrow Chronicles. Each character in the story reflects the authors’ beloved family members, friends, and acquaintances.

Nan Conta lived in Argentina for thirty-five years before moving to Beaverton, Oregon. Her husband has since passed, and she lives near a son, daughter-in-law, and a wonderful group of friends. Her two other children and six grandkids live out of state, including her grandson, Max. He lives in central New York with his mom and dad, little sister, their dog Chip, some hens and chickens, several bunny rabbits, and an imagination filled with budding inventions and great ideas.
