There's nothing like getting caught up in a story. Being an armadillo lover, I wanted to attend the armadillo party. But, alas, I could only read and enjoy the antics of Claudie and dream of her delicious sauce for the worms. After all, I couldn't be a gate crasher like Willy and Nilly 'Dillo.
There are so many other creatures that fill the pages of Betty Fasig's delightful read-aloud style book Wooffer. There's Larry, Curly and Moe, the three most homely cats anyone would want to meet, Ho Chi, the pig, A.A. Corn the squirrel, Agnes, mother of thousands, and Mr. Hoy T. Toity, to name a few. Their stories are short and poignant and will appeal to readers young and old. I was touched by the moving story of Old Laddie, left on a country road to die and how the other fur and feathered friends helped him find a new home.
This is a book to own and share. I found it delightful and I'm sure you will too.
