POPPADILLY by Audrey Chalmers


Email this review


An old pattern with a new angle, in a story of a mouse that wanted to be big, and of how he got his wish through the selfish manipulations of a naughty elf who wanted the mouse's gay clothes. But the mouse finds it isn't all he dreamed, behind bars and posing as a ""hippopotamouse"" in the zoo so he is very glad when the elf, again out for something himself, changes him back. But the elf doesn't get his desire -- and Timmy Whisket has to take his punishment too. Stocking book with darling illustrations in two colors by the author.
