Longlisted for the 2015 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal - One of our Books of the Year 2014 A cat story with a difference! When Mr Wuffles finds a toy space ship he can’t resist playing with it but, as he tips and tosses it, the results for the aliens inside it are very scary! Feeling motion sick and with their equipment damaged, the aliens find a place of safety and set about fixing their craft so that they can make an escape. Mr Wuffles watches and learns. But will he let them go? Stunning illustrations celebrate imaginative play.
Mr Wuffles! by David Wiesner
Mr Wuffles ignores all the toys people buy for him. He's not lazy, he's just very picky. Now Mr Wuffles has the perfect toy and he's ready to play. But it's not really a toy at all. It's something much more interesting ...
A near wordless masterpiece that could only have been devised by Caldecott Medal-winning David Wiesner.
Wiesner's dialogue and illustrations are clever, whimsical and sophisticated. New York Times, Book Review
Brilliantly original -- Anna Carey Irish Times
Rich imaginative detail makes you revisit each page again and again... Perfect for schools and curious-minded children. -- Vanessa Lewis Booksellers Choice, The Bookseller
Expertly imagined, composed, drawn and colored, this is Wiesner at his best. Kirkus (Starred Review)
A cat story with a difference! Stunning illustrations celebrate imaginative play. Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading
Once again Wiesner dips into his impressible imagination to deliver a mostly wordless conceptual picture book where the mundane and the magical collide Booklist, starred review
Visual storytelling at its best School Library Journal, starred review
The award-winning Wiesner (his trophy collection would make Meryl Streep blush) is a master of the form, a magical realist who makes the commonplace seem suddenly more
