About this title


This bittersweet coming-of-age tale is the story of every child�s secret friend and confidant. Lyn is bored. All the activities he usually enjoys no longer seem interesting. With nothing to do, he wanders into a strange pet shop where he buys a mysterious �fuzzy seed.� Planted with love, trust, and a dream, the seed grows into a friendly, giant creature. Lyn and Fuzzy become great friends, and �even plain everyday games� are fun to play again.

From the Inside Flap:

When James Rice came roaring up to Pelican in 1972 with his portfolio under his arm, it marked a great day for literature. He had this book to offer. But first he was asked if he could draw alligators; Cajun Night Before Christmas� had to be illustrated. Lyn and the Fuzzy was to follow as one of sixty-six works Jim Rice published with Pelican.

Offered for the first time in full color and with a newly designed dust jacket, this bittersweet coming-of-age tale is the story of every child's secret companion, who is friend, protector, and confidant.

It managed to become a banned book when a teacher in New York returned it with an angry note because it depicted Lyn helping his father in the yard and his sister helping her mother in the house.

Widely acclaimed as the South's leading illustrator of juvenile books, James Rice was the illustrator and/or author of sixty-six titles, including eighteen titles in The Night Before Christmas Series. There are almost two million copies of his books in print. He taught art at the grammar-school, high-school, and university levels and enjoyed talking to schoolchildren across the country about writing and art. James Rice passed away at his home in Hico, Texas, in May 2004.
