Fuddles—the fat, pampered cat—weathers a wintry wonderland in this holiday story of merry misadventures!
The way Fuddles, the overly indulged feline, sees the world, it’s better to receive than give! And what better gift for Fuddles than Christmas? One winter day, he wakes up to the smells and sights of the holiday: a juicy turkey dinner, sweet gingerbread, and a tree decorated with shiny, glittering toys—all for him! But when Fuddles tries to climb the tree, his family chases him away. He runs outside to escape, smack into cold and ice and snow! Will Fuddles ever make it back home in time to celebrate the merriest time of the year?
The pampered feline star of Fuddles (2011) is back and on the prowl for holiday treats. When Fuddles follows the delectable aromas to the dining room and spies a fancy, feast-laden table, he can't contain himself: "Me-wow!" But an authoritative voice shoos him from the dinner, presents, gingerbread house, and decorated tree, sending him scurrying right out the front door into the fluffy "white stuff" outside. Of course, once the family realizes what's happened, they welcome Fuddles back in the style to which his tubby tummy has grown accustomed. The entertaining antics of this black-and-white charmer are charged by several memorable images, including a tumble down the dark chimney. Ages 4 7.
