Washington Public Library: favorite children's book

Hi, my name is Jade. I have been working at the Washington Public Library for almost a year! After shelving what feels like thousands of books, I have stumbled across a select few that I absolutely love. For this “At the Library” column, I am going to highlight my favorite children’s book!

I first came across Mr. Wuffles! by David Wiesner while checking in a large load of children’s books. As a cat lover I had to see what this book was about. The book is about a cat named Mr. Wuffles who ignores all his toys except one, which turns out to be a spaceship full of small green aliens that speak a foreign language. The book includes colorful illustrations of Mr. Wuffles playing with the “toy” and the aliens inside it! I think this book is just adorable and fun! Stop by and check it out for yourself!
