Synopsis

Oh, there once was a Puffin
Just the shape of a muffin,
And he lived on an island in the bright blue sea!
But the dear little Puffin is lonely on his island for he has no one to play with. Children will rejoice when the muffin-shaped Puffin, with a hat for every occasion, comes up with a simple-and simply delicious-solution to his problem. Bright, bold pictures of a singularly appealing puffin bring this classic nonsense verse to life for the youngest listener.
