When an imaginary creature appears under the porch, Fern looks in her book to determine its name, decides it's a purple snerd, and spends the day playing with it.
What purrs, barks, and chirps and has long purple fur? Fern is about to find out . . . and to make a new friend. Mary GrandPré's bright artwork brings the magic-and mayhem-of the Purple Snerd's one-of-a-kind visit to laugh-out-loud life.
