Overview

The inspired Polly Dunbar wraps up her series about Tilly and Friends with two beguiling new adventures.

When Doodle the alligator is feeling bitey, the backside of Tumpty the elephant looks very tempting. But now Tumpty is sore — in more ways than one — and promptly stamps on Doodle’s tail. No wonder everyone’s upset! Luckily, the friends agree to apologize, and all is well — at least until Doodle starts to feel bitey again. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
This addition to the series about Tilly and her friends begins when Doodle the alligator wakes up feeling "BITEY!" She chomps breakfast, chews on the mail, and munches on the sofa. But when she bites Tumpty the elephant's bottom, it is clear she has gone too far. Tumpty stomps Doodle's tail. Tilly, the young girl with the anthropomorphic friends, tells Tumpty that the tail-stomping was not a nice thing to do. Both animals are now in tears; even Hector the pig is crying. Along comes bird Pru with a first-aid kit to bandage Doodle's tail, give Tumpty an "extra-large bandage for his bottom," and even bandage Hector and Tiptoe, too. After Pru kisses everyone better, Tumpty and Doodle apologize to each other and everyone is happy again. To be careful, however, Doodle gets a special bandage around her jaw. "No more bitey bitey!" she is told. The rather slight story needs no settings; the illustrations of the characters alone are sufficient to provide the humor. Black lines define them; mixed media colors fill in their personalities. Emotions are exaggerated, between tears and broad smiles, in this behavior lesson for the very young.
