ďSomeone has stolen our fuzz!Ē cried Pip Squeak.

The prairie dogs donít know what to do with the big round thing until Pip Squeak bravely puts the first piece of fuzz on her head. Thatís when it starts. Everyone wants fuzz, and everyone is determined to have some. When the fuzz runs out, some prairie dogs have a lot of fuzz, some have a little, and some have none at all. A war breaks out between them. After a while, the dogs tire out and, while they sleep, someone steals all the fuzz! Will the prairie dogs get their fuzz back, or will they be fuzzless forever?

The Great Fuzz Frenzy is a hilarious read for children three to eight. This story was inspired when Janet Stevensís dog dropped a tennis ball down a prairie-dog hole one day. Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel imagined what would happen and this story is what they came up with. This book is very humorous and I really enjoyed reading it to my younger sister. The pictures are colorful and amusing, which fits this tale perfectly. I rate The Great Fuzz Frenzy four stars.
