The pampered feline star of Fuddles (2011) is back and on the prowl for holiday treats. When Fuddles follows the delectable aromas to the dining room and spies a fancy, feast-laden table, he can’t contain himself: “Me-wow!” But an authoritative voice shoos him from the dinner, presents, gingerbread house, and decorated tree, sending him scurrying right out the front door into the fluffy “white stuff” outside. Of course, once the family realizes what’s happened, they welcome Fuddles back in the style to which his tubby tummy has grown accustomed. The entertaining antics of this black-and-white charmer are charged by several memorable images, including a tumble down the dark chimney. Ages 4–7. Agent: Paul Rodeen, Rodeen Literary Management. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Fuddles is a cat who is used to getting what he wants. But when what he wants is the Christmas dinner, wrapped presents, gingerbread house, and festive tree--well, his path of destruction is just too much for even the most tolerant family! This pampered puss is put outside, where a particularly clever series of illustrations shows even the happy snowman as indifferent to his feline concerns. Shenanigans with squirrels lead Fuddles to take a dive, right into the chimney. Soon, the finicky cat is back inside, enjoying a spa treatment and a home-cooked meal. Let us just hope this is not Fuddles’ new holiday tradition! Although the characters are not well-defined, feline aficionados of all ages will appreciate this amusing animal adventure with a holiday twist. The second story about this pampered cat (Fuddles, 2011). Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green AGERANGE: Ages 3 to 8.

In this second story about Fuddles the cat (Fuddles, 2011), he is accidentally locked out of the house on Christmas Eve, leading to a snowy adventure for the pampered feline. In the self-centered manner of most cats, Fuddles thinks all the special Christmas decorations and preparations must be there just for him. There's an unguarded table with a huge turkey, packages with interesting ribbons, and an enormous tree with lights and sparkly ornaments, just waiting for him to climb. After the Christmas tree topples to the ground, a befuddled Fuddles runs out the open door just as guests are entering. But Fuddles is clearly an indoor cat. Suddenly, he is in a frozen, white world, and he can't get back into the house. He rambles around his yard, plowing through the snowdrifts, before finding his way back into the house by sliding down the chimney. Vischer, an animator for Disney, provides polished, computer-generated illustrations, showing off the cat's comical, high-energy antics with effective use of display type and white space. He uses a satisfying array of perspectives, including a surprising, all-black spread of the cat sliding down the chimney that is laugh-out-loud funny. Fuddles is quite a character, and kids (and adults) who love cats will love Fuddles too. (Picture book. 4-7)

    Oh yea, life is sweet for Fuddles...best food, best accommodatio

    Oh yea, life is sweet for Fuddles...best food, best accommodations, best company and endless amounts of spoiling.
    Fuddles's refined sense of smell leads him to discover the senses of Christmas...a turkey dinner, a pile of presents, a gingerbread house and an amazing Christmas tree




    His owners discover him up the tree and shoo him away as they see what may befall their beloved pet and their nicely decorated tree. Chaos ensues as he scoots out the door into the freezing cold snow.  Startled by his new environment he determines to get back inside to his coveted easy life style.




    Fuddles explores his option for re-entry and then spots two pesky squirrels who give him a brilliant idea.  With brute determination our cat finds his way back into the warmth and arms of his adoring humans. 




    The story almost concludes with, "A warm bath...a soft towel...a sweet scent..and a home-cooked meal - just for him,"  now that is a grand re-union isn't it?  I might want to move in there myself.  The final page depicts Fuddles on his bed in front of the hearth, Santa's cookies gone, the reindeer's carrots gone, and a glass of milk....gone!  Fuddles knows how to have a good time.
