Big black cat Mr. Wuffles has no time for the inane toys his pet owners try to foist on him. Instead, he turns his attention to a small object which turns out to be an interstellar alien spacecraft occupied by Lilliputian aliens. Swatting at the ship, the feline manages to damage it, forcing the otherworldly visitors to flee it and seek shelter under a nearby radiator. There, against all expectations, they form an alliance with some equally embattled insects. Three-time Caldecott Medal winner David Weisner has created an almost wordless tale that translates well in any language. Editor's recommendation.

In a near wordless masterpiece that could only have been devised by David Wiesner, a cat named Mr. Wuffles doesn't care about toy mice or toy goldfish. He’s much more interested in playing with a little spaceship full of actual aliens—but the ship wasn't designed for this kind of rough treatment. Between motion sickness and damaged equipment, the aliens are in deep trouble.
When the space visitors dodge the cat and take shelter behind the radiator to repair the damage, they make a host of insect friends. The result? A humorous exploration of cooperation between aliens and insects, and of the universal nature of communication involving symbols, “cave” paintings, and gestures of friendship.

Clever and well-crafted, this book handily entertained the the 3, 5 and 7 year olds, (as well as myself during a week-long illness. ) The author has put much care and effort into the well thought out illustrations and story line. A great book for promoting child involvement by question asking.
This is a great, creative kid's book! "It's clever." says my wife. Clearly, you need to pick books for an appropriate aged child, but since my wife and I bought it for ourselves, we understand the plot clearly. :) Mr. Wuffles is imaginative, wonderfully illustrated, and charming! We only buy charming kids books for ourselves.
Was very disappointed as I bought it for a younger child but it didn't state on cover the age it should have been for and I am sure my 2 yr. old didn't understand the last pages of book!
