From the Inside Flap:

They're noisy, nosey and bossy -- these little Puckerdoodles who have ensnared the heart of Great-Grandpa Fussy. Teenie, Weenie, Waddles, and Toodlebug range in age from newborn to age 6. In Great-Grandpa's eyes they are unpredictable imps whose ingenious questions demand answers that only he can provide. After all, he has been tested three times over, as dad, grandpa and now great-grandpa.

Mardo Williams' delightful stories celebrate the unique bond between children and great-grandparents. Yukiko Mishima's charming illustrations add a dreamlike dimension, making this a gift book for both adults and children to treasure.

About the Author:

Author Mardo Williams was born in 1905. He began his writing career in 1927 as the only reporter at the Kenton, Ohio daily, The News-Republican, eventually writing a daily business column with byline for the Columbus Dispatch.

At age 88 he wrote a book about his mother, Maude (1883-1993): She Grew Up With the Country, which captures the spirit of the century. Maude, was chosen by booksellers and librarians for inclusion in Reading Group Choices, 1999. Great-Grandpa Fussy and the Little Puckerdoodles is his first children's book, based on adventures with his great-grandchildren.

Mardo Williams, who died February 2001 at the age of 95, is the first posthumous winner of an Ohioana Library Award in 2001 'for his many accomplishments as a writer, for his constant creativity, for the outstanding role model he provided as a Fearless Life Long Learner.'

Illustrator Yukiko Mishima, formerly of Hiroshima, Japan, is a recent graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York City. This multi-talented artist was chosen to design a bank in Hiroshima. She has produced and sold her own line of greeting cards, calendars, and puzzles. She is also a professional wedding cake designer. One of her dreams is to study pastry in Paris. This is her first children's book. The goal of her illustrations is to make people happy and to give them a little moment of rest.
