Would Wood? Would Could by Tiffany Stone

ONE FINE DAY, WOOD WAS SLEEPING LIKE A LOG.

Wood is a short log who pines for only one thing--a nice, long nap. And then along comes this girl with a toy rabbit to interrupt his sleep.

"LOOK, PRINCE FLUTTERBUTT! A UNICORN!"

"WHERE?" SAYS WOOD. COULD THAT GIRL MEAN HIM?

Wood was about to drift back into his nap, when the girl shouts again.

"PRINCE FLUTTERBUTT IS STUCK IN QUICKSAND!"

The girl is shouting something about a bridge. Wood COULD be a bridge, but. . . WOULD he? It was easier to drift back to sleep!

Then the girl starts calling for help for Prince Flutterbutt, who'd been snatched by an eagle and dropped in his nest, but by this time Wood is sleeping like a log again, snoring like a woodcutter sawing firewood. Would Wood help in the rescue?

Or. . ."woody knot?"

Wood awoke to roll over, deciding to help to root out the culprit.

MAYBE IT WAS TIME TO TURN OVER A NEW LEAF!

YES! WOOD WOULD!

Tiffany Stones' latest, Wood Could (Dial Books, 2021), will provide some fairly sophisticated wordplay for the picture book crowd, assisted by veteran comic illustrator Mike Lowery, who also did the jolly illustrations for Lynne Plourde's How to Talk Monster.

Wood turns out to be a good bloke, er "block" of wood, and logs a good deed, as well, in this punny funny story. Early reading should not be all work and no wordplay, and School Library Journal logs on to say, "A richly executed comedic piece, this hides tenderness in rough bark but is a real softie when it comes to charm. With funny wordplay and pacing to delight with every turn of the page, this one's a must."

  • Cyberguard Security Company are the most trusted and reliable recovery Agents in this modern day. They are the best recovery specialists out there that I have come into contact with. Few months ago, I was scammed $395,000 worth of BTC by someone who pretended to be a Forex trader online and convinced me to invest in cryptocurrency.
    I invested on this site and ended up paying more just to withdraw my profit which I paid capital for. I noticed I was being used and scammed at the same time. I went online and that is when I came across various people testifying about CYBER GUARD and how they have helped many in recovering their funds. I contacted them via email:thecyberguardtcg@gmail.com and to my surprise, he recovered all that I lost in less than 2 days.
    I will always be grateful for the job well done. They are can also be contacted via Whatsapp which is +1 (252)205-0270
