Timothy Tugbottom knows what he likes—and he definitely does not like different. Blueberry muffins for breakfast? A new book at bedtime? A brand-new big-boy bed? No thank you, not for him. He’s perfectly happy with his favorite cereal and his alphabet book—not to mention the warm, safe crib he’s been sleeping in his whole life. Although he has to admit his crib isn’t quite as comfortable as it used to be. . . .


About Anne Tyler

See more books from this Author
Novelist and short story writer Anne Tyler was born in Minnesota, grew up in North Carolina, and was educated at Duke University. Since 1965 she has lived in Baltimore, the setting for much of her work. With wry humor and sympathy, Tyler writes about the ambivalence of family relations, focusing on ordinary characters, most of whom live in Baltimore or in small Southern towns. Her concerns are with the human need to belong and to be loved, the necessity of making imperfect choices, and the acceptance of mortality. Beginning with her ninth novel, Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant (1982), which won the PEN Faulkner Award, Tyler has gained the wider audience she deserves. This novel shows Tyler's development as a writer: here, she is able to delineate family tensions over several generations. Tyler's feel for the oddities of families and the strange configurations of which they are made comes through vividly in The Accidental Tourist (1985). In 1988 She won the Pulitzer Prize for her novel, Breathing Lessons. Her latest novel is entitled, Noah's Compass. Tyler lives in Baltimore, Maryland. Mitra Modarressi is also the illustrator of "Timothy Tugbottom Says No"! She lives in San Francisco, California.
