With a nod to previous books in the Toot & Puddle series, Holly Hobbie, shows readers that the best kind of present for the best kind of friend is one that shows just how much you care.
Holly Hobbie has worked as an artist for more than thirty years and is the author of ten previous and highly acclaimed Toot & Puddle picture books, as well as an illustrated memoir, The Art of Holly Hobbie.
The popular porcine pals make their swan song in this charmer of a holiday volume, which marks the end of Hobbie's series. With Christmas fast approaching and no snow in sight, Toot and Puddle are more jumpy than jolly, each trying to find the perfect present for the other as they wish for white weather. Their caring, odd-couple rapport, similar to that of other favorite fictional friends Frog and Toad or George and Martha, has a comfortable and inviting sweetness; readers of any age can relate to the duo's universal feelings and experiences. Subtle facial expressions and childlike poses (and outfits) render the diminutive, piglet pair instantly endearing. But best friends always have the best ideas, and the piggy pair has its best celebration ever. Young cousin Opal adds a pip of funny pep to the generally cozy proceedings, making this another merry and bright visit to Woodcock Pocket. Ages 3-6. (Oct.)
