336P: Girl with tangled hair and a fat uncle barefoot in a mudpuddle

Seeking a children’s book about a slight girl with very long, slightly tangled dark hair, illustrated in realistic colored pencil, maybe?  On one page, there is a very affable, very fat uncle-type character, with his trousers rolled up, no socks or shoes on, and he’s in a stream or a mud puddle.  I feel like the girl has to be patient with her uncle(s) because he/they are very scatterbrained. 

One thought on “336P: Girl with tangled hair and a fat uncle barefoot in a mudpuddle

  1. Chapter book or picture book?

    If it’s a chapter book, it may be an illustration from Journey for Three, by Isabelle Holland, illustrated by Charles Robinson.
