This book I could use in my classroom to help activate imagination and relate it with Science vocabulary such as motion, space, etc. A cat named Mr. Muffles doesn't care about toy mice or toy goldfish. He is interested in playing with a little spaceship full of actual aliens—but the ship wasn't designed for this kind of rough treatment. Between motion sickness and damaged equipment, the aliens are in deep trouble.When the space visitors dodge the cat and take shelter behind the radiator to repair the damage. Age Ranges from: 4 - 7 years
Grade Level: Preschool - 3

Mr. Wuffles (a cat) ignores all of his toys. He comes across a spaceship with aliens inside it that needs repaired. The aliens have to in the cats territory to find things they can use to repair their ship. Will they escape safely?
This book is a great book which is probably why it is a Caldecott winner. The plot story line and character all played a great role. If I was I kid reading or being read this book I would be fascinated.
For classroom ideas I would have kids find things around the classroom to use their imagination and try to build/repair a spaceship. I would also have them try to find ways to avoid obstacles like the aliens had too.

Summary:
"Mr. Wuffles" by David Wiesner is about a cat named Mr. Wuffles who ignores all his toys that people buy for him. He is not a lazy cat, he is just very picky about his toys. Then one day he found a strange and interesting looking toy and was playing with it, not knowing that it was a spaceship with actual aliens in it.

Personal Reaction:
This book perfectly explains how picky cats can be. Is a great book to teach kids on how to play fair. The images in the book are really good.

Extension Ideas:
1. I would have the kids color a cat and teach them about cats.
2. I would come up with a game about playing fair.

This story centers around a curious, rambunctious cat named Mr. Wuffles. He never wants to play with any of his boring toys, but one day he takes interest in a ship that belongs to some aliens. He shakes the space ship around, making all of the aliens nauseous and destroying their space ship. The aliens take cover under a piece of furniture, and later befriend many insects. In the mean time, Mr. Wuffles is intrigued by a lady bug and begins to swat at it. As the aliens try to escape, Mr. Wuffles is curious about them yet again and attempts to stop them from leaving, but unfortunately for him, the aliens escape. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618756612, Hardcover)

In a near wordless masterpiece that could only have been devised by David Wiesner, a cat named Mr. Wuffles doesn't care about toy mice or toy goldfish. He’s much more interested in playing with a little spaceship full of actual aliens—but the ship wasn't designed for this kind of rough treatment. Between motion sickness and damaged equipment, the aliens are in deep trouble.

When the space visitors dodge the cat and take shelter behind the radiator to repair the damage, they make a host of insect friends. The result? A humorous exploration of cooperation between aliens and insects, and of the universal nature of communication involving symbols, “cave” paintings, and gestures of friendship.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:07:48 -0400)

"Mr. Wuffles ignores all his cat toys but one, which turns out to be a spaceship piloted by small green aliens. When Mr. Wuffles plays rough with the little ship, the aliens must venture into the cat's territory to make emergency repairs"--
