Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Holly Hobbie's delightful characters have been given new life on television. Since they are part of the "National Geographic" family, you can be pretty sure that we are going to be traveling around the world. In this story, Toot is off to Easter Island. Puddle stays home with Opal. They decide to build a swing using an old tire and some rope. Opal puts on her bathing suit and heads for some fun at the pond with the tire swing. What a surprise when she and Puddle arrive at Pocket Pond and the tire is gone. The next day, Puddle makes a new swing, but it also disappears. This is quite a mystery, just like the statues on Easter Island. Then Puddle and Opal set up another swing and try to catch the thief. The mystery is finally solved, and everyone ends up having a great time. Toot arrives home on the closing page. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

    Not What I Expected

    If, like me, you love the Toot and Puddle books then you will be surprised to find that this is based on the television series and not a true Holly Hobbie illustrated book. The pictures are instead digital. Big disappointment.

    Great for kids who like Toot and Puddle

    Ever since this cartoon came out on Noggin my almost 3 year old son can't get enough of it. He is always really excited to watch it on TV. I bought him this book hoping he would like me to read it to him as much as he likes to cartoon. He loves the book. He gets excited when I ask him if he wants me to read "Toot and Puddle." He also laughes every time when we get to the part in the book when Puddle catches himself.
    If your kids like the cartoon they will probably like the book. It is too wordy for a baby, but just the right length for a toddler.
