Delightful is the word that immediately comes to mind to describe POOFIN by Richard Wainwright. The story is one that children relate to, the print is large and the illustrations superb.

The story is about a little cloud sent to earth at Christmas to help human beings. He has a series of humorous misadventures with a little boy who tries to straighten out the tangled results. Finally, Poofin is able to provide the little boy and the entire community with the best Christmas ever.

"Since children cry tears in pain or sadness, it is difficult for them to grasp the meaning of 'tears of joy.' POOFIN is a wonderful presentation of that mysterious concept. This book presents several difficult lessons in simple terms. I think it is outstanding."
Donna Marshall Wolf, NY

"POOFIN is a wonderful, imaginative story that children enjoyed as much as I enjoyed reading it to them. A nice reinforcement for the true meaning of Christmas with basic values built into the story."
