Nothing Like a Puffin

author: Sue Soltis

illustrator: Bob Kolar

A puffin is an amazing creature. It's completely unique and one-of-akind. A ladder is nothing like a puffin. A house is nothing like a puffin. A newspaper is nothing like a puffin. . . . But wait! Who would have guessed? Could these things be more alike than you think? Young children will love following this mischievous puffin in an entertaining exercise in creative classification — and are guaranteed to start looking at everyday things in a whole new way.
There's nothing like this book! Bold, charming artwork enlivens a fun and clever game of compare-and-contrast for curious kids and puffin lovers alike.

author’s comments:
Sue Soltis is a published poet. About Nothing Like a Puffin, her first picture book, she says, “Writing this book was a great exercise in logic.
