Review: Hello, We’re the Fuzzwippers
September 24, 2012
Title: Hello, We’re the Fuzzwippers
Author: Marilynn Halas
Illustrator: Jeremy Provost
Series: Fuzzwippers #1

Summary: Fuzzwippers are friendly creatures that reach out to anyone who needs to be assured that they are wanted and needed. This book is the first in a new series for children, and introduces the new characters. Each book focuses on a different life skill—everything from how to be a good listener to playing fair. Through engaging storytelling, children are guided and supported by a friendly and magical Fuzzwipper creature, which always assures them that “they are loved, no matter what.”
My Thoughts: The Fuzzwippers are adorable, cuddly little creatures that a sure to brighten any child’s day. While this one just serves to introduce the characters, the very last page reminds children, “You are loved, no matter what.” That made me smile, and I look forward to seeing the future books with more focused themes, such as the upcoming Fuzzwippers Find Good Listeners.

The illustrations are adorable. Very colorful, and a little silly, too. Children are sure to enjoy seeing what these cute, lovable little creatures are up to!
Hello, We’re the Fuzzwippers by Marilynn Halas is a story that introduces a new set of adorable characters aimed at making kids smile. While this one reads just like that – and introduction to something new – it closes with lots of warm fuzzies (appropriately, I think) and leaves the reader – and the reader’s children – looking forward to encountering these creatures in future installments.

Fuzzwippers were born from a story I made up for my daughter, Elizabeth, when she was about 6 years old,” said Marilynn Halas. “She came out of school looking tired and overwhelmed and I did what I always did, I told her a story. My gloves had pompoms on them and there was a loose one in my pocket. I took it out and gave it to her as though it was a living creature. When she held it close to her, I saw the first smile of the afternoon and I knew this would be a story worth telling.”
