Tweezle isn’t a baby anymore—he’s a big boy now!
Pumpkin was the first. Hoogie came next. Tweezle is the baby. But babies grow up, and Tweezle is ready to be a big boy now—and he knows just how to prove it. For some reason, Mom isn’t thrilled when he helps with the dishes (Splash! Crash!). Dad isn’t delighted when he hunts through the tool shed (Blam! Slam!). Pumpkin and Hoogie say he’s way too little to touch their stuff. But when an even smaller friend needs help, Tweezle’s big idea might just save the day.
The endearing monster family introduced in Hoogie in the Middle returns in a story that will warm the hearts of youngest children—and their families. Stephanie McLellan’s text delights once again with its creative turns of phrase, while Dean Griffiths’ expressive monsters continue to enchant in clever illustrations that are twice as fun on a second reading.
