I really like the Toot and Puddle TV show on Nick Jr. I hadn't realized there was a whole series of books until today. I thought one with Opal would be a good one to read aloud to Natalie, but this one was still really too complex for her since it dealt with school. I was also a little disappointed at how little Toot and Puddle were actually in the story. But, I did like the story. I enjoyed how Opal didn't do anything mean to retaliate to Bubbles, but instead helps her out for the greater good...more

Opal is a better person than me :-) Good lesson on taking the high road and being selfless for the sake of the group.
Product Description
Bubbles is a copycat, yet she soon becomes the teacher's pet and the most popular student in class--and Opal's friend Daphne can't stand it! How does Bubbles always win? But when it's time for the class's annual theatrical extravaganza, Opal and Daphne discover one thing Bubbles can't do: dance. Bubbles is bound to be the weak link in the chorus line, unless someone decides to help her.

I didn't like this one as much as I have liked the other Toot and Puddles books because all...more

Not many years of school go by without the appearance of a new student. Much to the chagrin of Opal, Toot and Puddle’s young cousin, the new student, nicknamed Bubbles, joins her class and decides she wants to be exactly like Opal. Opal has a close friend, Daphne, who points out the annoying particulars of the new girl: a copycat and a teacher’s pet. Children will watch how Opal, with the advice of her older cousins, Toot and Puddle, after visits to Woodcock Pocket, handles the situation and tea...more

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is an interesting story about the new girl in town, rivalries, competition, and doing the right thing. Opal is very flattered and then annoyed at the new girl, Bubbles, and her constant imitation of whatever Opal does. The story is good, but the illustrations are marvelous, with little details, such as the homage to the painting American Gothic that really make this a great book for both parents and children. We really liked the calm wisdom of Puddle, who puts everything into perspective.
I liked it, but I didn't love it. The story problem, how to deal with a copycat, is never really resolved. But Opal and Puddle remain characteristically kind and compassionate toward those who might be unpleasant to deal with, even when others are appauled by the situation. Maybe the ending is appropriate to life. We don't always know why people do what they do or why they are the way they are, but we can always choose to be kind. Okay...maybe I liked it more than I thought! :)

I love Toot & Puddle but a book about a copy cat, meh. A book about a copy cat where there's a so-so resolution and... Meh. Just all around meh. Except the art. It was lovely.
I don't really like the resolution of this book. No good lessons were learned, but maybe some bad habits were. No bueno. I do like the artwork though. I likes pigs.
Teaches kids how to deal with a copycat.
i read it 2 me brother all the time
Copy cats or pigs can be annoying.
