I originally became interested in the book as I had just finished reading Trupp, by Janell Cannon (same author). Trupp and Little Yau are the same fictional animals and Trupp is a main character in the story of Little Yau. I believe Janell Cannon has two stories about these fictional creatures, called Fuzzheads. Once I read Trupp and fell in love with that story, I knew I had to locate Litte Yau to read more about the Fuzzheads. I learned of Little Yau from the book sleeve of the book, Trupp.

This is a very strange tale. I'm not sure what to think about it. It was interesting, but certainly odd. Janell Cannon's illustrations are terrific, as usual. And the information provided at the end of the book about Fuzzheads was entertaining - gotta love an animal who dresses up in human clothes as often as they dare to go hang out in libraries. Still, I definitely would not consider this a favorite story and I'm not sure if we will go out of our way to read Trupp: A Fuzzhead Tale.
