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.
This book reminds of those people who write new age books through channeling aliens. I do admit the focus on herbal healing is cool, an animal alternative to tradional medicine.

The animals are sort of cute in a creepy way.
Little Yau is a Fuzzhead that wants nothing more than to be selected to learn with the Wise Ones. When her best friend, Trupp, is found poisoned Yau must use her knowledge of plants to save him. From author Janell Cannon.
A strange little story about creatures called "Fuzzheads" who look in the human world for a plant to create a medicine to cure oneo f their own who was poisoned. Somewhat hard to follow.

This book was slightly cheesy and too wordy. I can see why some children would enjoy it. This is about meeting a challenge and exceeding others' expectations by helping a friend.
Kids like this story, but I do not
Weird pictures and made up creatures
Yau has to save Trupp's life with herbal healing
Another hate-the-humans book. Extremely boring besides.
