Mr. Wuffles! (David Wiesner)

Mr. Wuffles!
David Wiesner
Clarion Books
Fiction, YA Picture Book
****+ (Good/Great)

DESCRIPTION: A cat ignores the many toys offered by his desperate owner. He's far more interested in a shiny flying object... the one with the little scurrying figures inside. Meanwhile, an alien expedition to a new world goes horribly wrong when a giant black and white beast damages their ship.

REVIEW: A wordless picture book tells the story of the aloof Mr. Wuffles and his alien encounter. As the cat delights in his new toy, the aliens must seek help from native ants and bugs living in the house walls - a cultural exchange that may have lasting implications. Meanwhile, the oblivious human wonders why his friend turns his whiskered nose up at his kitty toys. A fun read with bright pictures.
