After their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Pudmuddle move into their backwards house where they live happily until they discover certain deficiencies--there is no basement and the roof has blown off.

Nice Mr. Pudmuddle likes things backwards--dinner in the morning, putting on his clothes before he bathes, mixing up words like ``soodle noup'' or his own name. When he marries, the bride tosses her bouquet before the ceremony, which ends with ``Here Comes the Bride''; but their new house, thrown together by Messrs Hustle, Bustle, and Rush, has some glitches that even the Pudmuddles find inconvenient: reversed hot and cold faucets are fine, but the lack of a cellar is awkward--it would be ``handy in the winter...we could put the furnace there.'' York tells her charming story with a light touch that will recommend it to Amelia Bedelia graduates; Thiesing's smiling characters and entertaining details are in just the right comic spirit--a jacket take of a fully clothed Pudmuddle, sipping tea while sitting in a bubble bath, is sure to attract readers.

Grade 2-4-- Mr. Pudmuddle has an unusual way of doing things. He eats his picnic and then packs his picnic basket. He goes grocery shopping and then comes home and makes his grocery list. He eats dinner in the morning and breakfast in the evening hours. He dresses before he takes a bath. One of his favorite dishes is "soodle noup" and he enjoys "tuttered boast" for his evening meal. But the fun really begins when he meets the future Mrs. Pudmuddle and decides to have a house built for her. Softly drawn illustrations show the robust, cheerful couple who are happy with their offbeat lifestyle. Those readers who enjoyed Peggy Parish's "Amelia Bedelia" tales are sure to flock to this chapter book about a zany, but lovable, pair. --Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA
