Format: Hardcover
The Toot and Puddle series by Holly Hobbie is a sweet (without being saccharine) and charming series about a pair of pigs who are best friends. There are subtle "morals" woven into each book; they fall under the general theme of "everybody is different it's worth trying to understand those differences". In this book, Toot is sad - he can't explain why. He sits and mopes. His friend, Puddle, tries to cheer him up. Toot recognizes this (and even seems to appreciate it), but it does not cheer him up.
Finally, there is a gentle "surprise" ending that made me happy - because I am one of those people who loves "terrible weather"
This is a good book for kids - as a reminder that sometimes people just get sad for a while and can't explain it. It's also a good "gift" book for sensitive adults who appreciate such things. The story is deep enough to speak to adults, I think

Toot & Puddle are perfect porcine pals who, in their delicate way, teach us all that sometimes we're just out of alignment and that's OK.
On a beautiful, sun-shining morning in Woodcock Pocket, Puddle was out catching butterflies. The sun was shining, birds singing, flowers blooming and... Well, in the house, Toot was moping.
Like anyone who's ever had an off day, Toot can't quite explain what's the matter, nor does he particularly *feel* like explaining. SOMETHING'S clearly the matter, Puddle and Tulip the parrot can see that, because nothing seems to cheer him up--not the blue sky, not the clean air, not even "five-berry cobbler with heaps of whipped cream..." Well, the cobbler HELPS a bit, but the next day Toot comes shuffling across the yard, hands stuffed in pockets, floppy hat with equally floppy ears sticking out, half-heartedly kicking some stones.
His friends try to cheer him up. An adventure seems in order, but white water rafting proves to be not quite the right medicine for melancholy. Similarly, a picnic with friends and a game of hide-&-seek is fun for everyone except for Toot, who isn't in the mood to be "it". In short, nothing works and Puddle and Tulip are getting concerned, when a thunderous storm hits.
Toot, who is the only one who is NOT afraid, is out braving the storm in his yellow rain slicker on a beautiful 2-page illustration that itself makes the book worth reading. Lo', the next morning, a happy, smiling Toot comes marching through the puddles towards his friends who, lying in the grass, conclude that "sometimes you need a big whopping thunderstorm to clear the air.

I Love*love*love Toot and Puddle. I think Hollie Hobbie is the *best* author/illustrator so if I could actually read the book I'm sure I'd give it 5 stars. The problem is that I thought I would use this on my phone but the book is too large to read on my little phone. There is no way to zoom in and out or pan around so it is simply illegible. Then I tried on my laptop (a Mac Powerbook) but it said I'm not authorized for it, in the end I can open it in the cloud reader but it is still a little small and awkward to use. Plus I thought I could pull out a kids book on the fly but now I can only use it when I'm online. I'm sure it said so somewhere, so I should bash Amazon too much, but I just make sure others don't make the same mistake I did. I imagine this same critique goes for other kids books, this was just my first try.

Everybody has bad days, and sometimes we don't know what to do to help.
Toot is having a bad day, and doesn't know why, so his friend, Puddle, tries to cheer him up. Nothing seems to help for very long until there is a big rainstorm that clears the air.
I love that this book does not oversimplify these kinds of moods we all have. And yet, it gives hope that the mood will pass. Young children relate to this story well, especially when they are having a tough day.
The art work and writing is beautiful, and I am a big Toot and Puddle fan because of that.
I would definitely say it's a more positive approach than _Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No-good, Very Bad Day_ and that it can also be read on any day, in any mood.
The children I have read this book to love it as much as I do.

Depressed? Kids? Yes! Do depressed kids (and adults!) need friends like Puddle? ABSOLUTELY! Puddle hangs in there with Toot while Toot goes through a dark time, very thoughtfully making Toot's favorite foods, inviting company (okay, a little misguided, but with a heart of gold intentions) and patiently waits and remains a friend while Toots goes through and then emerges from the dark.
Sweet, sweet illustrations. Great text. Toot & Puddle: You Are My Sunshine I have Puddle friends. I am SO blessed!

Such a sweet story of patience and friendship. I would love to spend the day with Toot and Puddle!
I think these two would enjoy meeting Pooh and Piglet!
The illustrations are superb! We need more friends like these two.
Thank you, Holly!
