Purrball Meets Burrball in Brazil

Hi everyone! I have an adorable children’s book to tell you about today. Purrball Meets Burrball in Brazil by Anne Zoet is the sweetest children’s picture book I have seen in a long time. The illustrations are adorable and I love that Purrball is blue. dscf2581-2

Purrball’s family ( a Mom, Dad and little boy named Darryl) are moving to Brazil for a year. When they arrive at the airport, there is an earthquake and Purrball runs away. He ends up in the jungle and befriends a sloth he names Burrball.

I like how modern the story is which includes a cell phone. I also like how they keep Purrball in the plane with them instead of in cargo. I look forward to more books about the adventures of Purrball and Burrball. You can even go to their website purrballandburrball.com and download puzzles and mazes for children. This book is for ages 3-9, but I am going to start reading it to “The Great One” now even though she is only 10 months old. I guess I will have to wait a while for her to do the puzzles though πŸ™‚

You can order your own copy from Amazon.

*Disclaimer: I was given a copy of Purrball Meets Burrball for free in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are my own.

For P.S. Annie’s 19-Somethin Challenge, the question is Did you ever have big hair? I didn’t blow dry it out to look big, but I do appear to have big hair in some photos. I wanted to scan one in, but had technical difficultiesΒ  ( meaning I was too stupid to figure out how to scan).

I am a day late, but joining the kid lit version of It’s Monday! What Are You Reading hosted by Teacher Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers.


  1. Next to kitties and pandas, we think sloths are the coolest animals around. *I* would like to have a sloth as a friend, I think. Well, those giant claws are a little skeery-looking, but they do seem kinda slow with them and I’m pretty fast, so it would prolly be okay. I am not sure I want to go on a plane though. We enjoyed your story!

    1. The sloth wasn’t on the plane, he was in the jungle which is where the kitty ran when he got scared πŸ™‚ Thanks for visiting us Spitty.

  2. That sounds like a cute book. I think that it is great that you’re reading to the baby. The earlier children are read to, the better. Maybe she’ll grow up to be an avid reader, too. πŸ™‚

    I don’t think that you’re stupid at all. Sometimes these technical things just defy all logic and aren’t going to work for anything, no matter what we try. I’m there pretty often myself. πŸ™‚ Thanks for joining our 19-Somethin’ challenge.

    Have a blessed day!

    1. She already turns the pages on her little books that are hard and thick. Thank you for saying I am not stupid, I sure feel like I am with all things computer oriented.

  3. Purrball sounds cool. Scanners can be temperamental. I had a time getting the one I had been using for years with no problem to work when the computer upgraded itself from Windows 8 to Windows 10.

  4. That sounds like a very sweet story. My mum had big hair, but not intentionally. It was because it was very thick. It was okay when it was long, but when she had it cut to shoulder length it fuzzed out everywhere.

  5. This book looks and sounds so sweet and fun. I am in love with the illustrations and can’t wait to get my hands on a copy to see them all in person. Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

  6. guys…thiz soundz like an awesum wee onez book, we will share this info
    with R friendz who haz wee onez a round ~~~~ β™₯β™₯β™₯☺☺☺

  7. This sounds like a wonderful tale, and like you I appreciate that it has modern features children will relate to. It is great to mix reality and fantasy and show children that life can be a little bit of both! Great review! πŸ™‚

  8. This sounds like an adorable book! I love it when children’s books involve animals – especially cats. πŸ™‚ It looks like your kitties are enjoying the story too! Those illustrations are darling.

  9. That sounds like a sweet book! We know the Great One will love it πŸ™‚

    the critters in the cottage xo

  10. That does sounds like such a good book and even the old Mom wants to read it. I bet it is just too cute. Thanks for that great review.

  11. Hi efurrybuddy, We are trying to get into much better visiting habits these days! You have been such loyal furiends even when my stoopy Human was running around doing all KINDS of stoopy stuff that didn’t help ME at all. But I gave her a talking to, so we hope we are going to be better now. XOXOXO

  12. Never ever is it too early to read to a wee one. That is good for a lot of reasons, and we are glad you are doing that! We did read to our boys from the moment they came home, even the newspaper sometimes when they were on a lap and it wasn’t really ‘lap-time’. It is a sweet book,and Zoet is a Dutch word for sweet:)
    Big hair?? Not anyone in our family…but our unfur-uncle he had built in big hair, he has an ‘afro’ if he lets it grow that way…the envy of many a gal, MOL! He used to hate it but now he is in fashion…us 2 gals did not have curls, let alone long enough hair to make it ‘big’.

    1. I read it to her and she seemed to like it. I did have to keep it at a distance so she wouldn’t rip it or eat it though πŸ™‚ She already turns the pages in her little hard books that are more baby friendly.
