Usually I don't mind investing a little extra money in a good story in nook format, however, I am very disappointed that I spent almost $10 for this book. I regret that I did not pay attention to the review posted in May 2011.
The actual book may be great, but the pictures in the nook format are very small, and I was unable to enlarge them to make out much detail. The actual story words are written in tiny white letters amidst the pictures, and are unreadable, so the story had to be reprinted below the pictures on the pages. Many pages do not have the matching words from the picture on that same page, so it is hard to follow.
The story itself is cute, however, buy it as a paper copy to really enjoy this one!

In some of her most recent work, Janet Stevens has created a playful story that adds to her already creditable list of outstanding books. Stevens, author of Tops and Bottoms and My Big Dog, has done it again with her book titled, The Great Fuzz Frenzy. Stevens has written and illustrated many picture books that have won numerous awards. These awards include the Caldecott Honor, An American Library Association Notable Book and the Parent¿s Choice Awards and many others. Because she illustrates some of her own books, she adds her own unique touch of creativity and humor in her collections. The Great Fuzz Frenzy is no exception. This book became alive when her dog rolled a tennis ball into a prairie-dog hole and Janet began to wonder what the prairie dogs might have thought when this strange creature came in and bombarded their community. She turned her simple wonder into a book that allows readers to be imaginative and creative through this fictional book about how life could be for these prairie dogs who create clothing from the tennis ball fuzz. Taking the perspective of the prairie dogs, we as readers enter their world and become a part of this underground life that we have never explored. The illustrations highlight just how fluorescent the ball is to these brown, plain colored animals that are clueless about anything like this. I would love to use this book in my classroom when I am telling my students that it is okay to use humor in their writing and that they should be as creative as possible. I really enjoyed how this child¿s book is like no other book I have read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

What a find! So delightful! I picked this book up the first time at my child's school book fair. My son grabbed my hand and pulled me over to the book laughing. He is six and a new reader and can't put it down. He loves the funny cute little prarie dogs in the book who discover the green fuz off a lost tennis ball. My nine year old son says 'it's a keeper' too. I recommend this lovely book to any child ages 3-9 years old.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
