Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Clever plot twists abound in this silly story of Mr. and Mrs. Puddle, who can’t agree on anything. Accidentally leaving their dogs behind when returning home from a family vacation leads to hilarious misadventures and a surprise reunion. Halley Feiffer’s spot-on vocalizations fully capture the silliness and sarcasm of the outrageous tale.” School Library Journal (audio review)
