Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Armin Brott
Snuffles is a bear who loves to entertain. And everybody who's anybody comes for a visit at her house. Everybody, that is, except Percy, the penguin who just moved in next-door. Snuffles takes Percy's absence as a personal challenge and, over the course of several days, invites the new neighbor to join her and her friends as they listen to music, eat caramel cake, have parties, and drink raspberry tea. Percy, however, politely declines each of Snuffles' invitations. Finally, the bear discovers that the penguin isn't really rejecting her friendship, he's just shy. The two become fast friends and eventually, Percy makes friends with all the other neighbors-one at a time. Problem solved. While this book contains the important messages that it's OK to be shy and that making friends might take some work, it ultimately suffers from a boring text and uninspired illustrations. A joint project of Candlewick Press (which has published some terrific children's books) and Gund (the company that makes the Snuffles "plush pet"), Snuffles Makes a Friend seems more like a sales gimmick than a serious attempt at storytelling.
