Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Percy the Pug loves puddles — big puddles, small puddles, swamp puddles, stomp puddles. But no puddle is perfect... until he finds one with three friendly piglets. But protective Mama Pig says NO PUGS and chases Percy away! Irresistibly illustrated by Keika Yamaguchi, Kim Norman's tale about a persistent pug and his pursuit of friendship in puddle paradise brims with warmth and charm.

Review:

"'Percy was a puddle pug. He loved puddles of every sort,' opens Norman's (If It's Snowy and You Know It, Clap Your Paws!) sweet-natured story about a dog's hunt for the perfect puddle. Percy is both indiscriminate and a tough customer when it comes to puddles: he loves 'swamp puddles, stomp puddles, ready-for-a-romp' puddles, but some puddles are too lonely, while others have the wrong kind of crowd: 'Too buggy. Too sluggy.' When Percy finally finds the perfect spot — a deliciously muddy pigs' wallow — Mama Pig won't let him near it. Although the resolution follows a well-trod path (after a storm hits, Percy proves his puddle-worthiness by rescuing a piglet), Norman's storytelling bounds along with an energy to match that of Percy. Working in a palette of muddy blues, greens, and browns, Yamaguchi, illustrator of the self-published Sick of Being Sick, seals the deal. Pug devotees will be all over roly-poly Percy's enormous and expressive eyes, surreptitious attempts at infiltrating the pigs' wallow, and all-around gleeful splashing in puddles large and small. Ages 3 – up. Author's agent: Jennifer Mattson, Andrea Brown Literary Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
