Feiwel & Friends | May 24, 2011 | Picture Books

Tumford the Terrible is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Tumford isn’t really a terrible cat. He just has a way of finding mischief—tracking dirt into the house, knocking over breakable things, and disrupting fancy parties. But even though he feels bad, he has a hard time saying, “I’m sorry.” Will the fact that his owners love him, no matter what, help Tummy say the magic words?

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I am a HUGE Nancy Tillman fan! This book is very fun and funny and teaches children why it is important to apologize. She gets her point across in such a kind, gentle way. Her artwork (as always) is impeccable!

Read from the Book

…But oh, dear and oh, my
There was one small pity.
Tumford, it seems, was a most stubborn kitty.
In spite of the manners he often forgot
He would not say, "I''m sorry."
Oh, no, he would not!

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You: “The illustrations that flow across each page of this tale are every bit as beautiful as the message: Never doubt that you’re number one with Mom.” — Parenting: Early Years "Encourages an adult and child to snuggle affectionately together with a book is undeniable and may make this just the balm the doctor (or librarian) ordered.” — Booklist “Parents and grandparents with a sweet tooth will likely lap up the latest in Tillman’s string of sentimental favorites.” — Kirkus Reviews “[Tillman] has an unerring instinct for dramatic composition--in these pages, readers get the sense of spying on a secret world--and her potent combination of unapologetic sentiment, fantasy, photorealism, and painterliness has an undeniable allure.” — Publishers Weekly “Oh, to be the lucky child whose parent reads Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You aloud… Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You is the book you want to give to whomever you love; it would make a memorable birthday, holiday or ‘just because’ gift, and it is sure to be treasured.” —BlogCritics.org Praise for On the Night You Were Born : “This is one of those rare baby books that should make both skeptics and sentimentalists of all ages happy.”— Publishers Weekly “A beautiful tribute to the uniqueness of every child.”— Kirkus Reviews &#
