Exquisite watercolors enhance this charming tale of two friends who are different in many ways yet alike in their devotion to each other. It's Toot's birthday and Puddle is having some trouble picking out a gift. Will he be able to find the perfect present?
It's a glorious day in Woodcock Pocket. The sun is shining, the birds are singing...and Toot is moping. So, Puddle makes Toot's favorite dessert at dinnertime, takes him out for a little adventure, and even throws a party, but nothing seems to cheer up his friend. Then a big thunderstorm with lots of mud rocks Woodcock Pocket and changes everything. With light-hearted humor and exquisitely detailed watercolor paintings, Holly Hobbie tells the story of two pigs and their enduring friendship.
Meet Toot and Puddle--two small, endearing pigs who are friends and as different as different can be. While Toot likes to travel to places unknown, Puddle prefers to stay home and revel in the joys of everyday life. Whimsical postcards capture the excitement of Toot's travels, while scenes of Puddle celebrate mundane moments spent in familiar confines.
When Toot doesn't return home to Woodcock Pocket as expected, Puddle becomes worried and decides he must go find him. His search leads him on a remarkable adventure, and to new summits of friendship.
