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 mud and who also like peanut butter sandwiches.
