The fun of A VERY FUDDLES CHRISTMAS is in the art. Kids will delight in seeing Fuddles pampered and overfed and then getting into all sorts of trouble with the Christmas food, presents, and decorations. It's all typical stuff, but Fuddles has so much personality, and author Frans Vischer's illustrations are so funny and expressive, kids will look forward to each rereading.

Vischer, an animator at the Disney Studio, displays a command of pacing, tension, and dramatic arc. It's easy to imagine this story as a holiday cartoon.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
