Pudgey Wudgey McFudgeykins was a funny, mischievous, and kind little moose. He was not scared of the dark or of snakes or spiders. The snakes and spiders were his friends. The Princess of the land always called him to slay any evil and fiery dragon. Pudge's favorite holiday was Halloween. He loved dressing up as a spooky ghost and going trick or treating. One day when Pudge woke up, he felt queasy and unwell and he knew he had to see a doctor. For the first time in his life, Pudge was afraid. His friends had told him about their visits but Pudge was scared. He tried to be brave while going to the doctor's office. His legs were shaky when he arrived at the doctor's office. Dr. Matterhorn was the best doctor in town and he was kind and loving. The doctor put him at ease and by the time Pudge went home, he realized there was nothing to be scared of.

Pudge Goes to the Doctor by Samantha Fistere is a helpful book for all parents to make their children feel comfortable and at ease while visiting a doctor. Pudge is a good example of being afraid of visiting a doctor and then realizing that there was nothing to be afraid of. Pudge helps young readers go through the entire process and it is the story of any child who is on their first visit to a doctor. The illustrations are adorable and make the story and the characters tangible to young readers.
