When Michael fills his sandbox with water one morning and then jumps rights in, Puddleman is born. Puddleman loves playing in the mud-especially after he's scared off the Glassgrinder twins and made the nosy lady next door feel faint. But when Puddleman yearns for a peanut butter sandwich, he discovers that Michael's mother won't feed muddy monsters. Puddleman is left to sulk and fume-unless he can figure out a way to transform himself back into . . . Michael! This is an endearing story for young readers who love playing in the mudóand who also like peanut butter sandwiches.
