“Great-Grandpa Fussy and the Little Puckerdoodles is an enchanting storybook. Twenty-one stories delight readers with subjects from make-believe to losing teeth to new babies. The Puckerdoodles are funny, colorful characters and the family stories are light and playful. The book is perfect for reading a single story each day either in class or at home. One reader did note, however, that she could not put it down!”-- Kathleen Kain, Ph.D., Children’s Educ Co-op

“The adventures of three little ones and their family are accom-panied by action-filled, charming illustrations. The relationships of great-grandad, mother, father and siblings are detailed in everyday activities. The 21 short adventures contain topics school-aged children can relate to. The stories are great for bedtime and give younger readers a sense of continuation.”—MTM, Children’s Book Review Service

"The stories are rich in their very simplicity. Yukiko Mishima's illustrations reflect the same masterful ‘simplicity.’ The stories tell of many adventures, both entertaining and instructive. But best of all they provide a secure place that offers the reader good cheer and gentle affection."
--Kathy Piper, Professional Puppeteer, Past-president of The Puppeteers of America

“It’s a fun, family read-aloud book. The names of the characters are sure to bring giggles galore. The delightful illustrations simply enhance the 21 heartwarming stories.” Victoria Grimes, Today’s Family

"Lots of laugh and dabs of philosophy celebrate the unique bond between children & their great-grandparents. Yukiko Mishima's enchanting illustrations are a joyous & colorful addition & bring the stories to life." --RebeccaReads.com
"These are adorable, funny, interesting stories and beautifully illustrated. Yukiko Mishima has a whimsical flair to her drawings and wonderful use of color. I intend to make a gift of Great Grandpa Fussy and the Little Puckerdoodles to several of my best friends (who are first time Grandmas)." --Sharon White, Expectant Grandmother
"A delightful collection of short stories perfect for naptime and bedtime reading. Great thought has been given to including stories perfect for holiday reading as well. The wide variety of vocabulary provides opportunity for children to learn new words such as what is "falsetto," what does "cock of the walk" mean, and what's "a nook and cranny"? The humorous illustrations allow children to participate as they point to their favorite ice cream flavor and laugh at the antics of the Puckerdoodle children." --Linda Meinelt, School Librarian
"Every day family events and family members make up this wonderful collection of stories. The storyteller has a gift for helping the reader see the humor, fun, and excitement that abound in family life. Colorful illustrations enhance the stories beautifully, capturing the activities and personalities of this delightful intergenerational family." --Sara Burneson, Elementary Language Arts Coordinator, Elementary Principal
