"? this sprightly paced tale amiably nudges kids whose direction-following skills need some honing." - Publishers Weekly &nbsp"Buddy's father had a beautiful big nose. He was a great sniffer. Buddy's mother had beautiful big teeth. She was a great chomper. Buddy had beautiful big ears. It didn't matter." When someone says squash, Buddy hears wash. Tomatoes, you say? He buys potatoes. One day-because he didn't listen-Buddy accidentally ends up at Scruffy Varmint's scary cave. Unfortunately, he doesn't listen to Scruffy, either? and almost ends up as bunny stew! This delightful cautionary tale is now part of a fun, 8" x 8" hardcover series about life lessons.Includes downloadable audio!

Editorial Reviews

Kids will enjoy the slapstick and the word jokes. Munsinger's joyful watercolors extend the farce of the disaster scenarios." - Booklist, ALA"
