“Great-Grandpa Fussy and the Little Puckerdoodles is an enchanting storybook. Twenty-one stories delight readers with subjects from make-believe to losing teeth to new babies. The Puckerdoodles are funny, colorful characters and the family stories are light and playful. The book is perfect for reading a single story each day either in class or at home. One reader did note, however, that she could not put it down!”-- Kathleen Kain, Ph.D., Children’s Educ Co-op

“The adventures of three little ones and their family are accom-panied by action-filled, charming illustrations. The relationships of great-grandad, mother, father and siblings are detailed in everyday activities. The 21 short adventures contain topics school-aged children can relate to. The stories are great for bedtime and give younger readers a sense of continuation.”—MTM, Children’s Book Review Service

"The stories are rich in their very simplicity. Yukiko Mishima's illustrations reflect the same masterful ‘simplicity.’ The stories tell of many adventures, both entertaining and instructive. But best of all they provide a secure place that offers the reader good cheer and gentle affection."
--Kathy Piper, Professional Puppeteer, Past-president of The Puppeteers of America

Summary: Whether its celebrating a family event, giving Mama a much-needed respite from her children, or creating magic for the kids, Great-Grandpa Fussy comes to the rescue. This is a collection of short stories about the things (big and small) that occur in our lives.

Young Reader Reaction: Our very precocious preschooler requested a story from this book for about a week. After that, s/he lost interest.

Adult Reader Reaction: We liked the fact that you didn't need to read the book cover-to-cover every night, and thought it would be a great way to introduce a chapter book. The stories are sweet, though we were disappointed that the very first one is about making a road-side potty stop.

Great-Grandpa Fussy and the Little Puckerdoodles: 21.
