Review:
Many of today's young learners aren't familiar the ferret, and this very appealing puppet can change that. Ferrets (members of the mink family) are household pets in some countries, and they are known both for their crazy dance and for their "thievery" of small objects. This soft, cuddly, hand puppet is quite realistic; it has very "convincing" fur, eyes, nose, ears, and paws, and it approximates the actual size of an adult ferret. Two pockets let puppeteers manipulate the ferret's body and mouth. Selected facts about ferrets and a pourquoi story are included on the printed tag.
