9781416949619: The Problem with the Puddles


What if your parents agreed to disagree?

Eight and a half years ago, when their beautiful baby girl was born, Mr. and Mrs. Puddle couldn't agree on what to name her. So Mrs. Puddle calls her daughter Emily and Mr. Puddle calls her Ferdinanda. And everyone else? They call her Baby.

Having parents who agree to disagree does mean twice as many presents on your birthday, but it can complicate your life! There was the time Baby's parents couldn't agree on what kind of dog to get -- so they got two, both named Sally. One summer day, when rushing back to the city from their country house, the Puddles leave the Sallys behind. Will the Puddles agree to go back? What will become of the Sallys?

Kate Feiffer's debut novel is by turns funny, heartwarming, and wholly satisfying. Tricia Tusa's pleasing artwork makes the Puddles' world complete.

Let the Puddle family into your heart. You will be glad you did.

From AudioFile:

Hats off to Halley Feiffer for her narration of every character in this zany adventure! Her distinct vocal personalities enable the listener keep up as each seemingly unrelated thread of the story unravels. As the Puddle family searches for their lost dogs--both named Sally--Feiffer works her magic. Intonation, pacing, and exuberance are her tools--bickering, verbose, nonfunctional parents; dogs oozing with personality; and a genuinely humorous daughter, Baby, are the result. Feiffer moves effortlessly but purposefully as the threads bring parents, siblings, dogs, and a vacation to a surprising conclusion. A.R. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
