Description


An Amazon Best Book of the Month

One fine morning, the people of Puddletrunk wake up to find their bridge has collapsed. They are not surprised. After all, termites have destroyed the last 200 or so bridges. Luckily, the people of Puddletrunk have a bridge-building expert in their town: the fabulous Mortimer Gulch, who will gladly rebuild their bridge for a pretty penny. But when a newcomer to Puddletrunk does not want to pay for the repairs, Mortimer is displeased. To make matters worse, this unusual foreigner has some innovative ideas that threaten to upend Mortimer Gulch's entire business . . .

Here is a whimsical yet timely picture book allegory about what new people with new ideas can bring to communities.

"When the town finally overcomes its bridge dilemma, 'Everyone enjoy[s] themselves immensely!' Readers will, too. A towering achievement." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review


"Pure entertainment is on offer here; there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing an evildoer get his comeuppance and an unlikely hero prevail, and Cornell delivers." —Publishers Weekly
