'Tumford the Terrible' is about an unrepentant cat who can't/won't apologize when he gets himself in trouble. As he hides from the latest outrageous mess he made he thinks about how apologizing would make him feel happy inside . . . and so he does. The story is a tiny bit clumsy, but kids will love the rhymes and adore the pictures.

"There aren't always cheers when he knocks
over platters,
but he's always loved. . .
and that's all that matters."

Learning to say the simple words "I'm sorry," has never been so lovable, as told in this story of a fumbling cat nicknamed "Tummy."
