Bridget is a very careful child. She never climbs on roofs or pets dogs or jumps over ditches. In fact, she's afraid of most things. But when Bridget gets lost and meets up with a pack of gray wolves in the deep, dark woods, she takes charge. She makes them play, even though they prefer to "lurk behind trees and snarl." They aren't much good at games. And when their stomachs begin to growl, she feeds them mud soup and puts them to bed.
Quirky, bold art perfectly complements this tale.
I found "Bridget" to be an odd and uneven book: it starts out like a realistic "social situation" type children's book, and unexpectedly morphs into a lighthearted talking animal story. I also felt that Bridget's character changed too abruptly. Still, this is a fun book with goofy, enjoyable artwork. Give it a try!
