Editorial Reviews

Review

"...perfect for naptime and bedtime reading...The wide variety of vocabulary provides opportunity for children to learn new words..." -- Linda Meinelt, Ohio School Librarian

"Everyday family events and family members make up this wonderful collection of stories. The storyteller has a gift for helping the reader see the humor, fun, and excietment that abound in family life. Colorful illustrations enhance the stories beautifully, capturing the activities and personalities of this delightful intergenerational family." -- Sara Burneson, elementary language arts coordinator and elementary principal

"Great-Grandpa Fussy and the Little Puckerdoodles catches those magical everyday moments when age doesn't matter but family does. The book will delight children and their parents, grandparents, and of course great-grandparents. Mardo Williams' charming stories and Yukiko Mishima's captivating illustrations are rooted in humor, wonder, and love." -- P.M. Carlson, author of Renowned Be thy Grave

"Great-Grandpa Fussy is himself the biggest kid in these family tales, as he offers both childlike fun and parenting wisdom. Every family needs a relative so naturally tuned in to the real lives of children." -- Lilian B. Mullane, Director, Riverside Early Learning Center, NYC

"It's a fun, family read-aloud book. The names of the characters are sure to bring giggles galore." -- Victoria Grimes, Today's Family

"Mardo Williams is an author for the ages. Ms. Mishima's style is colorful, atmospheric, and primitive..." -- Ralph Gardner, Jr., New York Observer

From the Inside Flap

They're noisy, nosey and bossy -- these little Puckerdoodles who have ensnared the heart of Great-Grandpa Fussy. Teenie, Weenie, Waddles, and Toodlebug range in age from newborn to age 6. In Great-Grandpa's eyes they are unpredictable imps whose ingenious questions demand answers that only he can provide. After all, he has been tested three times over, as dad, grandpa and now great-grandpa.

Mardo Williams' delightful stories celebrate the unique bond between children and great-grandparents. Yukiko Mishima's charming illustrations add a dreamlike dimension, making this a gift book for both adults and children to treasure.

Format: Hardcover
Puckerdoodles are noisy, nosey and bossy, but nevertheless, they have ensnared the heart of Great-Grandpa Fussy. Teenie, Weeine, Waddles, and Toodlebug range in age from newborn to 6 years old. In Great-Grandpa's eyes they are unpredictable imps whose ingenious questions demand answers that only he can provide. After all, he has been tested three times over -- as a dad, a grandpa, and now as a great-grandpa. Yukiko Mishima's energetic and colorful images admirably showcase Mardo Williams' original and very charming collection of 21 entertaining stories for young readers ages 5 and older.

Kukiko Mishima's enchanting illustrations colofully complement Mardo Williams' funny stories about the three Puckerdoodles & their Great-Grandfather, as they go about their hectic lives going for ice cream, having a holiday, being bored, playing cowboys, making a Christmas picture, dreaming of a picnic, getting up on the wrong side of the bed, getting lost & so much more!
