Biting Remarks Mar 5, 2002
It is Puma�s first day of school, and he is continuously biting the tails of all of his classmates. When the other animals in his class trick him, Puma is caught and unable to say his recurring phrase, �It wasn�t me!� Written for young children beginning school, Willis and Birchall try to convince the listener that biting is painful and unacceptable behavior. Their attempt is unsuccessful especially since Puma was biting for fun. Young children, who have never been biters, might put Puma�s actions into play and begin biting because it is fun. The fact the he is sneaking up on all of his �victims� shows that he is attempting to be devious. Not the best book for using with young children who need to be convinced to stop biting.
