THERE ONCE WAS A PUFFIN by Florence Page Jaques

THERE ONCE WAS A PUFFIN

Age Range: 2 - 5

KIRKUS REVIEW

 An affectionately illustrated version of the old poem about the lonely puffin who befriended his erstwhile prey, the fishes, so he could have them ``for playmates/Instead of for tea'' and learned to eat pancakes instead ``Like you and like me.'' Cheerful full- bleed artwork in Easter egg colors on heavy stock makes this sturdy little book a happy find for toddlers and preschoolers. Anyone fond of Lear's ``The Owl and the Pussy-Cat'' is sure to like this one, too. (Picture book. 2-5)
