Synopsis

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.

Reviews

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)

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

About the Author

David Wiesner

David Wiesner is one of the best-loved and most highly acclaimed picture book creators in the world. His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and have won numerous awards.

Wiesner generally spends several years creating each new book. Many versions are sketched and revised until the story line flows smoothly and each image works the way he wants it to. He creates three-dimensional models of objects he can't observe in real life, such as flying pigs and lizards standing upright, to add authenticity to his drawings.
David Wiesner lives with his family outside Philadelphia.
