The Puddle Pail

Publisher: Tricycle Press
Elisa Kleven's beloved little blue crocodile, Ernst, stars in this story about two brothers. While sensible Sol collects things like feathers and shells, Ernst has a more whimsical approach: He wants to collect puddles and all they reflect--clouds, stripes, colors, and stars. Ernst's imagination soars once he begins his amazing collection.

  • Two brothers have very different ideas about what to collect--one likes bottlecaps, the other likes...puddles!
  • Elisa Kleven's second book featuring Ernst, the inquisitive crocodile.
  • Previous editions sold 28,000 copies
