Eight-and-a-half years ago, when their beautiful baby girl was born, Mr. and Mrs. Puddle couldn't agree on what to name her. So Mrs. Puddle calls her daughter Emily and Mr. Puddle calls her Ferdinanda. And everyone else? They call her Baby.

Having parents who agree to disagree does mean twice as many presents on your birthday, but it can complicate your life! There was the time Baby's parents couldn't agree on what kind of dog to get - so they got two, both named Sally. One summer day, when rushing back to the city from their country house, the Puddles leave the Sallys behind. Will the Puddles agree to go back? What will become of the Sallys?

    " Mr. Puddle loves living in the country and Mrs. Puddle loves living in the city. They have two children, Baby who is eight and Tom her older brother. Mr. and Mrs. Puddle had another son. He was their first born son and they had given him up at birth because they felt they were too young to have children. The Puddles waited several days for the rain to let up so they could leave. They always disagreed about everything. When the rain finally stopped they rushed around packing the car and then sped off without their dogs. They argue about whether they should continue on and call the neighbors or if they should turn around. The dogs have realized they have been left behind and start making their way toward the city. The puddles have car trouble along the way and that is where their adventure really begins. This was a funny book. At times I felt like I was reading a book that was a cross between Roald Dahl and Lemony Snicket. It is just quirky enough that I think my students will like it. I really didn’t think I was going to like it when I first picked it up. I decided it looked like an easy read so I would get it done and over with. Little did I know that it would charm its way into my heart. I can’t wait to order it and put it on my shelf. "

    " A cute book - but it just didn't click with me for some reason. "

    " I thought this was a completely delightful and charming book, thoroughly enjoyable and funny, until page 130 when it veered in some strange direction and lost me for the rest of the book. Weirdest experience I've ever had reading a book. Tricia Tusa's art is phenomenal though. "

    " I read the audio version of this book. I had to make myself finish this book. Mr. and Mrs. Puddle who could never agree on anything became annoying to me. I did enjoy the alternate viewpoints of the dogs, Little Sally and Big Sally. I believe there will be an audience problem with this book. It's 200 pages, but seems more suited to the interests of primary age students. The tongue in cheek humor works much better in The Willoughbys than it does here. "
