Overview


A 2014 Caldecott Honor Book
 
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.

I was disappointed to realize that this book has no words. I only realized this after I bought it to read to my daughter. I should have looked at the description better.

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!
