The full-page, colorful, entertaining illustrations add a lot to the story of Toddie, "a wicked big toddlah." This story, told by Toddie's sibling, follows Toddie from birth through what seems to be the first year of his life. The storyline is positive with regard to the addition of a new sibling, and children may genuinely enjoy reading about what happens as this giant toddler plays and grows. The illustrations are detailed and entertaining enough for children and adults, and it is a great story to share regardless of the number of children in a family. ( )

Toddie is just like any other baby, except he's really, really big (the size of a house). He is brought by a stork, flying through a snow storm in the middle of the night, to join his New England family. His Uncle proclaims "That's a wicked big toddlah!" and that's how Toddie gets his name. He's just like any other baby, except instead of eating the ice cream, he eats the ice cream truck, instead of bathing in the tub, he bathes in the bay (and plays with the toy boats!). Toddie's world is full of family, friends and neighbors who take care of him and his giant needs. Beatifully illustrated, the warm coloring and rich details of the story bring New England to life. The story, on the other hand, lacks structure. Toddie arrives as a baby, yet he's instantly a toddler, his family is instantly ready to take care of this giant addition, and he eats houses as if they're food. Basically this giant "toddlah" terrorizes the town and no one does anything. Children between 4 and 8 would enjoy this silly little tale. ( )
