Review

"Tiffky Doofky is a (dog) garbage collector who's told by fortune-teller Madam Tarsal that 'this very day, before the sun goes down, you will fall in love with the one you are going to marry'...But his fortune gets temporarily waylaid by an old chicken biddy who's secretly Madam Tarsal's enemy and persists in trying to foil her fortune-telling." --Starred, Booklist

More About the Author

William Steig (1907-2003) published his first children's book, Roland the Minstrel Pig, in 1968, and received the Caldecott Medal for Sylvester and the Magic Pebble (978-1416902065) in 1970. His works also include The Amazing Bone, a Caldecott Honor Book, and Abel's Island and Doctor De Soto, both Newbery Honor Books. His most recent books published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux are Shrek! (released by DreamWorks as a major motion picture) and Wizzil, illustrated by Quentin Blake. School Library Journal named Shrek! a Best Book of 1990 and said of it, "Steig's inimitable wit and artistic dash have never been sharper or more expertly blended."

Our little boy liked all the William Steig books. So did we. This Thanksgiving's magic moment: our boy (now 20) and I almost simultaneously expressed the desire to read Tiffky Doofke again. Its quirky haunting humor made us laugh so many times all those years ago. The boy, the dad, the mom, the uncle, everyone I know who ever read it - loved it.

William Steig is one of our favorites... he doesn't write "down" to kids and has imaginative stories for them to enjoy with adults.
