When Michael fills his sandbox with water one morning and then jumps rights in, Puddleman is born. Puddleman loves playing in the mud-especially after he's scared off the Glassgrinder twins and made the nosy lady next door feel faint. But when Puddleman yearns for a peanut butter sandwich, he discovers that Michael's mother won't feed muddy monsters. Puddleman is left to sulk and fume-unless he can figure out a way to transform himself back into . . . Michael! This is an endearing story for young readers who love playing in the mudóand who also like peanut butter sandwiches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Early Years Teacher This is a fantastic book to use to introduce a Spring Unit with young childrem. The pictures are beautifully illustrated and catch the attention of the students. The content of the story is simple and very applicible to the audience, as they can all associate with Michael who loves to get messy in the mud.

From Our Editors

Is it Mud Man? Perhaps Mr. Muck Monster? No, it’s Puddleman! When the rain stops falling outside, Michael can’t resist dashing into the yard and jumping right into his gunky sandbox. And as soon as he re-emerges, no one can recognize him anymore because of the caked-on muck! But Michael will have to learn how to clean up pretty quickly or else he won’t get his favourite sandwiches for lunch in Ted Staunton and illustrator Brenda Clark’s Puddleman.
