Toot and Puddle are the best of friends. But when Toot leaves Woodcock Pocket to travel and see the world, Puddle chooses to stay at home. Just when Puddle begins to miss his old friend, he embarks on some of his own adventures-right at home. Finally, after Toot returns from his year-long trip, the two discover that true friendship knows no boundaries. Winner of the ABBY Award, this first book in the highly-acclaimed picture book series is a story about being yourself and being a good friend.
With a delightful mix of humor, warmth, and a classic style all her own, Holly Hobbie captures the excitement, fun, and joy that surrounds adventures-whether far away or right at home. Best of all, this affordable paperback edition comes with two free postcards that kids can personalize and mail to their friends!
