We had the pleasure of reading an adorable new Christmas picture book last week. A Very Fuddles Christmas is written and illustrated by Frans Vischer. It's a story of a fat, pampered cat named Fuddles who has quite an adventure at Christmastime. He climbs a tree, braves the snow outside and even falls down the chimney! But in the end, he returns to his pampered lifestyle.
This was a charming story. My mother and my daughter read it first, alternating pages. M, who is 6 1/2, said she loved the funny cat. My mom loved the illustrations ~ Fuddles' face is so very expressive. Both of my kids thought the best part of the book was when Fuddles went down the chimney! I loved that this story brought back memories of the cats I had as pets when I was a child. The silly things that Fuddles does are the very things that most cats do when the Christmas decorations and snow take over their world. Anyone who has ever owned a cat will be able to relate to this story!
I'm happy to have found another holiday book that I'm sure we will be sharing every year for the foreseeable future. Fuddles made all of us laugh and got us into the Christmas spirit. I highly recommend it for kids ~ and cat lovers ~ of all ages!
