Amazon Best Books of the Month, June 2011: “In spite of the manners he often forgot, he would not say, “I’m sorry.” Oh no, he would not.” With these memorable words we get to know Tumford, a well-meaning but stubborn kitty, who has a habit of hiding when his mischievous ways call for an apology. Tumford’s owners' love for him never wavers, and after an incident with the Queen of the Fair he finds the courage to say, “I’m sorry.” In true Tillman style, Tumford the Terrible is beautifully illustrated and reassuring for little ones, reminding them that “love isn’t measured in muddy galoshes, broken tea dishes, or trampled on squashes.” --Seira Wilson
A Look Inside Tumford the Terrible
Tumford exists to deliver a lesson on the importance of apologizing sincerely; with his chubby tummy and slick yellow boots, he looks as if he might have had some interesting adventures, but Tillman (On the Night You Were Born) stays on message. (Publishers Weekly)
Tummy marches jubilantly in yellow galoshes, a Puss-in-Boots extraordinaire. (Chicago Tribune)
