PETE'S PUDDLE by Joanna Foster
Kirkus Star


Email this review


Colored with fine squashy words like ""mish, mash, muddle"", this is a glorious experience for the mud pie set. Pete finds a puddle, and it became at different times an ocean for boats, a mirror in which he sees his face, and Pete can play milk man and fill bottles, a builder and build a dam and of course a cook and make mud pies. And then there is a wonderful puddle song. Makes the reader itch for a fine, big, rainy-day puddle to splash in -- with raincoat and boots on, of course.
