A Very Fuddles Christmas

Frans Vischer. S&S/Aladdin, $15.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-4169-9156-4

The pampered feline star of Fuddles (2011) is back and on the prowl for holiday treats. When Fuddles follows the delectable aromas to the dining room and spies a fancy, feast-laden table, he can’t contain himself: “Me-wow!” But an authoritative voice shoos him from the dinner, presents, gingerbread house, and decorated tree, sending him scurrying right out the front door into the fluffy “white stuff” outside. Of course, once the family realizes what’s happened, they welcome Fuddles back in the style to which his tubby tummy has grown accustomed. The entertaining antics of this black-and-white charmer are charged by several memorable images, including a tumble down the dark chimney. Ages 4–7. Agent: Paul Rodeen, Rodeen Literary Management.
