Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

The activities of a homebody and an enthusiastic world traveler are contrasted in illustrations brimming with humor. Two anthropomorphic pigs live in the country setting of Woodcock Pocket. There, Puddle turns his head to the sun streaming in his kitchen window as he makes popcorn on the stove. Meanwhile, Toot peers at the globe with a magnifying glass, planning an ambitious trip. He asks Puddle along, but goes forth alone, and from then on, the experiences of the two are laid side by side on the double-page spreads. A monthly postcard from Toot is reproduced over an illustration from his year-long adventure (scaling cliffs in the Alps, visiting an Italian pastry shop, taking a camel ride through Egypt, etc.), and a sort of reply comes from a scene of Puddle savoring events on the home front: gathering maple sap for syrup, playing in spring mud, painting a self-portrait, or trying out a Halloween mask. In Hobbie's expert watercolors are dozens of inventive touches--Puddle wearing a shower cap in the bath, Toot floating among hippos, some of his limbs breaking the surface in a subtle mimicry of their stances, funny allusions to famous art or locales; the book and its heroes are endearing, and readers will want to see more of Woodcock Pocket soon.

I am a 30-year old woman. I have no children. I don't even have any nieces and nephews. But I love Toot and Puddle. I have a couple of the books and even the little Toot and Puddle dolls. Why? Because the books are comforting - they are like having someone meet you at the door on a cold day with a hot cup of cocoa and a plate of cinnamon toast. The colors in the pictures are so beautiful. Reading the books in the series and looking at the pictures can cheer me up after a bad day. Toot and Puddle are sweet and charming without being saccharine - there are very real character traits in each one and it is interesting to see the differences between the adventurous Toot and the homeloving Puddle. Like many other fine "children's" books, this one holds up when an adult reads it because of the basic truth of the personalities of the characters - the fact that there are real human traits given to these little pigs.

This is a book I give to all my friends with children as a gift. It has the sweetest message about appreciating differences, being friends and enjoying life!
I have been a 2nd grade teacher for 5 years and this is one of my favorite picture books for children...and I've read hundreds. The illustrations are magnificent too. Happy reading.

I live overseas and my adult daughter bought this book for me for my 42nd birthday. She inscribed it "To Toot, Love From Puddle - you'll understand after you read the book". And the book is so true of OUR relationship. We've lived all over the world but now our daughter is married with a home of her own - filled with momentos of travels when she was young as well as things I've given her from the place we now live. A wonderful expression of our own relationship - this book hit the nail on the head! Now I just need to get in that postcard habit....!

Toot & Puddle demonstrates different interests of two friends. Both of them enjoy what they are doing while Toot shared each adventure by sending postcards to his best friends. I like the moral of friendship behind what could be easily learnt by a toddler.

I read this tonight with my kids and the story itself was adorable --- what I could read was cute, anyway. The print was insanely tiny and the little postcards were almost impossible to read. On the Kindle, there's no way to make the print larger either. So while I'd recommend the story, I would absolutely NOT recommend getting it on the Kindle.

My daughter, husband and I read this book for the first time snuggled in our bed before bed last night and we all enjoyed it very much.
The illustrations are great.
The book shows that two people, or pigs, can be best friends and be their own person. I also enjoyed that the characters kept in touch through post card writing.
I would recommend this book to all people with young children.

The electronic copy of this book is insanely small! It will ONLY display landscape and one is unable to enlarge the printed text. I'm very disappointed and would prefer a refund. You may delete it from my Kindle immediately. I do NOT recommend this book.

I bought this book for my eldest daughter (college age and a journalism major) and for my youngest daughter (first grade.) My college girl travels the world like Toot and my baby girl stays home (like Puddle.) And of course, like Toot and Puddle, they miss each other terribly. So, together, they read the book when my "Toot" is home for a visit and it helps my "Puddle" to understand why my "Toot" keeps leaving and that she will come back. The story shows that even though Toot leaves to travel, he still cares for Puddle and that he does come back home. My eldest also enjoys the art work (she is also an art history minor) and the well written story and my youngest just enjoys the book.
