Read this book to find out what happens when Torten finds a New Jersey chimney blocked by a large, furry object. A thoroughly delightful book by the late and very imaginative author, Maurice Dolbier, and one that hasn't lost a bit of its charm since it was written in 1951. Recommended for ages 4-10 or adults who think like children.« less
