Fuzz McFlops by Eva Furnari, Alison Entrekin

Fuzz has one ear shorter than the other.  He just stays home and writes poetry and some children's books.  He doesn't want to go out in public.

Pushkin Children's Books and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be available October 13th.

When Fuzz gets a fancy letter with a bow on it, he decides to read it.  At first he's pleased, it appears to be a fan letter.  Then she has the gall to tell him she thinks it's depressing and here's how he should write it!  He's angry at the criticism.  But then he starts to think about what she said...

This is a cute tale about sharing some letters and a post card and her trying to get him to visit.  It's not until he thinks she's in danger that he gets brave enough to go.  And the only reason it sounded like that was because part of the print washed away.  But it does result in a visit and that visit turns into a very good thing.

Besides the story, this book has several new terms to learn.  Things like what a postcard or a telegram or a letter are.  Anything that might sound unusual to a first time reader.  I liked that touch.  This is not just a cute story; it's also a learning tool.
