Synopses & Reviews
Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Toot & Puddle with this redesigned hardcover edition of the story that started a series. This anniversary edition of the book includes a limited edition Holly Hobbie print suitable for framing. One day Toot takes off to see the world, while Puddle decides to stay home. This is the story of their wonderful adventures both far away and right at home. It's a story about being yourself and being a good friend.
"The popular porcine pals make their swan song in this charmer of a holiday volume, which marks the end of Hobbie's series. With Christmas fast approaching and no snow in sight, Toot and Puddle are more jumpy than jolly, each trying to find the perfect present for the other as they wish for white weather. Their caring, odd-couple rapport, similar to that of other favorite fictional friends Frog and Toad or George and Martha, has a comfortable and inviting sweetness; readers of any age can relate to the duo's universal feelings and experiences. Subtle facial expressions and childlike poses (and outfits) render the diminutive, piglet pair instantly endearing. But best friends always have the best ideas, and the piggy pair has its best celebration ever. Young cousin Opal adds a pip of funny pep to the generally cozy proceedings, making this another merry and bright visit to Woodcock Pocket. Ages 3-6. (Oct.)"
