The Wonderful Fluffy Little Squishy

The Wonderful Fluffy Little Squishy 
By Beatrice Alemagna
Enchanted Lion Books, 2015. Picture Book.

Edith, who goes by Eddie, thinks that she does not know how to do anything. When she overhears her sister use the words “fuzzy—little—squishy” when discussing a birthday gift for their mom, Eddie sets out to find a fuzzy little squishy gift to rival whatever her sister is planning. Eddie races from shop to shop asking her friends, the shop owners, for help finding the perfect gift. However, the adjectives of “fuzzy” and “squishy” get mixed up with other words and Eddie ends up with a random assortment of objects. Just when she begins to lose hope, she finds a “true FLUFFY LITTLE SQUISHY.” Using the newly acquired objects, Eddie obtains the perfect gift for her mom.

The Wonderful Fluffy Little Squishy is a fun import from France full of unique illustrations done using a combination of colored pencil and water colors with a brilliant pink being used to accent Eddie’s coat and the Fluffy Little Squishy. PreK-2nd graders will enjoy this story of a girl who learns about one of her talents.
