Puddleman by Raymond Briggs
Book DescriptionTom refers to his grandfather as 'Collar' because he drags him around on a lead. One day, Tom decides that he will take Collar on a walk to see the puddles he has named after the members of the family, but the puddles are not there. Collar insists that this is because it hasn't rained, but Tom believes that it's just because they haven't been put in yet. He wanders off, leaving Collar talking to Mrs Whitebobblehat, and comes across just the person he needs ...Finally, puddles restored to their full, family-resembling glory, Tom and Collar go home for tea.

Notes from the Sofa, Hardback (November 2015)» View all books by Raymond Briggs
Suitable for adults, this book traces the course of author's life in a series of wonderfully observed vignettes that take him from the awkwardness and embarrassment of growing up to the vicissitudes and frustrations of growing old.
US Kirkus Review » It hasn't rained for ages, but that's not enough to prevent a young lad from revisiting favorite puddles from earlier walks. Pulling his game, if befuddled, grandpa at the end of a long leash, the child is initially sad to find the puddles reduced to spots in the road. But then along comes the Puddleman, a grizzled gent invisible to grownups and bent beneath a stack of puddles-each of which is just the right shape for a particular place. Characteristically illustrated with soft-toned colored-pencil country scenes in big, easy-to-follow sequential panels, this outing celebrates a child's gift for flights of imagination (though, to be sure, even Grandpa can see the refurbished puddles once they're in place), while presenting an amusing picture of interplay between a hyper-energetic youngster and an elder caregiver doing his best to keep up. (Picture book. 5-8) (Kirkus Reviews)
