The Great Fuzz Frenzy by Janet Stevens, Susan Stevens Crummel

Deep, deep down in their underground town, the prairie dogs live in harmony—until a mysterious, fluorescent, very fuzzy thing (otherwise known as a tennis ball) rolls down their hole. When the prairie dogs discover that they can pluck and pull the fuzz into fabulous fashions, their fear quickly turns to curiosity, then delight, then pure greed.

The frenzy that erupts threatens to tear apart the prairie-dog town forever. But when mean ol' Big Bark is kidnapped after taking all the fuzz for himself, the prairie dogs come to the rescue and remember the true meaning of community.

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!

We are so disappointed. The format of the eBook is terrible. Wish I had spent the $10 on the actual paper version.

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.

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.
