Big Draw at the Glendale library!

frans did a fuddles reading and drawing demonstration at the casa verdugo library in glendale. the kids

did a fuddles treasure hunt too, and they asked frans a bunch of questions. librarian vivian dulay organised

the event. (she’s in the picture with frans, holding my fuddles book.)

and with frans and my christmas book is maureen, the owner of once upon a time bookstore in montrose,

(the oldest children’s bookstore in the country!)

i’m sad to report that there wasn’t much food on hand, so i’ll console myself with a big tuna casserole.


Spencerport visit

last week frans visited spencerport in upstate new york. he went to four elementary schools, munn,

bernabi, taylor and canal view. frans showed pictures and videos of me, and he made drawings of me

doing silly things which made the kids laugh. frans talked about writing and reading, and the kids asked

great questions and gave frans ideas for new fuddles books.

what i want to know is what was for lunch! frans got a nice meal each day- he even had lunch with some

special kids at taylor elementary school, where they talked about ideas and writing and drawing.

i would just talk about food.


Doctor visit

People in waiting room sketches

frans went to the eye doctor and he drew some people in the waiting room. i don’t like

going to the doctor. they weigh me, and then they gasp and then they ask frans what

he’s been feeding me and then they tell him that i have to lose weight.

then i get all depressed because food is my favorite thing, so how can they take that

away from me? then i need some chocolate eclairs to put me in a better mood!


My library

My library


i love reading. reading is good for my mind. it’s good for my tummy too, because all the

books in my library are cookbooks!

i read about italian cooking, or vegetarian food, or yummy mexican dishes or any kind

of food i want, so I can expand my mind and my tummy too!


Scary cat!

Scary cat

halloween scares me. all these weird looking people coming by my house, making all that noise. and

there’s all this scary stuff on tv. and my family just hands out a bunch of candy to everybody that

comes to the door!

we have this big orange bowl filled with goodies, and i’m watching it slowly disappear! that’s very

painful for a kitty like me that appreciates yummy things. i just hope there’ll be something left over

for me…


Young Fuddles reader

Young reader

look at this avid young reader, appreciating my adventures! she looks so intrigued as i work

out to prepare for the great outdoors.

i love entertaining kids almost as much as i love eating! it’s hard to beat a happy kid’s smile,

but a heaping plate of beet pickled deviled eggs will do the trick. add a chocolate peanut

butter cheesecake, and food wins, paws down!


Birdman, or the expected virtue of ignorance


sometimes i pretend i’m a superhero and i can fly like a bird. i go way up high, and then i can

finally catch those birdies that come into my backyard and make all that racket, trying to annoy

me because they think i can’t catch them. but when i’m birdman i can!

if i think really hard, and listen to that little voice in my head that says, yes i can! i think i could

fly. yesterday i jumped from the bench in my yard and i tried hard to fly, but i fell straight down

on my snout. i think i didn’t think hard enough. i’ll try again today, but first i need food. i can’t

think on an empty stomach. a tuna melt with relish and swiss cheese and a sweet pickle will do.

and then i’ll be ready to fly!
