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

"Tumford exists to deliver a lesson on the importance of apologizing sincerely; with his chubby tummy and slick yellow boots, he looks as if he might have had some interesting adventures, but Tillman (On the Night You Were Born) stays on message." -Publishers Weekly

"Tummy marches jubilantly in yellow galoshes, a Puss-in-Boots extraordinaire." -Chicago Tribune
