When is a spot not a spot? It depends whom you listen to -the walrus or the puffin. This hilarious tale by the author of such popular I CAN READ Books as who's a pest? and tell me some more answers this perfectly logical question with wit, charm, and high good humor. It was the walrus who first saw the spot-a black spot in the white, white snow. He would have investigated it at once had not the puffin-a know-it-all bird of diminutive stature-insisted that it was nothing, nothing at all. And the walrus had great respect for the puffin's intellect-up to a point. In uproarious words and pictures, Mrs. Bonsall describes just what happens when nothing turns out to be a very definite something. Beginning readers, when they stop laughing long enough to read the words, will find this book utterly and completely satisfying. Picture descriptions are included when they help explain what's going on in the story.
From the book: Even though his sisters, Lolly, Molly, Polly, and Dolly, insist on it, Homer refuses to believe he is a pest. And when a lizard, a rabbit, and a chipmunk agree with his sisters, Homer is still not convinced. Then an unidentified someone -or is it a something?-calls for help. And that is when the so-called pest proves his worth. Every child who is allergic to being called a pest, as who is not, will find this story uproariously funny. The tongue-twisting dialogue, which is as readable as it is laugh-provoking, and the equally hilarious pictures [omitted] are sure to make it a favorite with beginning readers everywhere.
