Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the flowers are in full bloom- so why is Toot so blue? In an effort to cheer up his best friend, Puddle bakes Toot's favorite berry cobbler, takes him on a river rafting adventure, invites all of their friends over for a fun-filled day of games and sing-alongs, but nothing seems to help. Just when he is about to give up, a sudden thunderstorm hits Woodcock Pocket, flooding all of Pocket Pond. The next day, Puddle waks up to find the air cleared...and his old friend back.

With a cheerful mix of humor, warmth, and a classic style all her own, Holly Hobbie captures how the coming of a new day and good friends can help raise our spirits. Best of all, this affordable paperback edition comes with two punch-out recipe cards with step-by-step instructions that kids can follow to make a no-bake fruit cheesecake and chilled strawberry lemonade.

Synopsis:

It's a glorious day in Woodcock Pocket. The sun is shining, the birds are singing . . . and Toot is moping. So, Puddle makes Toot's favorite dessert at dinnertime, takes him out for a little adventure, and even throws a party, but nothing seems to cheer up his friend. Then a big thunderstorm with lots of mud rocks Woodcock Pocket and changes everything. With light-hearted humor and exquisitely detailed watercolor paintings, Holly Hobbie tells the story of two pigs and their enduring friendship.

Synopsis:

Nothing Puddle tries--even making his favorite dessert--can cheer up Toot. Puddle cannot make his friend Toot stop moping until a huge thunderstorm clears the air.

Puddle and Tulip are very worried when normally upbeat Toot gets down in the dumps, and they try just about everything they can to cheer him up. In the end, however, it comes down to Toot needing to come out of his funk on his own -- but maybe his friends helped more than they thought.

I probably would hesitate to pick this one for to read for a large group again, because I felt that some of the illustrations and story just weren't coming across to some of the kids. But I really love this story and I have huge affection for Toot and Puddle.
