Overview

Using their cache of already published easy-to-read books, Puffin launched their Easy-to-Read program. Favorite stories by such beloved authors as James Marshall, Jean Van Leeuwen, and Harriet Ziefert are certain to attract readers to this series. Though the quality of stories in this series is uneven, some of them are superb. Like most other beginning-to-read series, Puffin Easy-to-Read is divided into reading levels. Level 1 uses sentences with clear and simple words and illustrations that help the reader understand the story line. Level 2 is the springboard for emerging readers: the stories use longer sentences, yet maintain a vocabulary easy enough for the child to feel comfortable on his or her own. Level 3 offers more challenging sentences and longer stories. Grade 2 - Grade 4.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-4 The team that created Fishy Riddles (Dial, 1983) is back with a bug banquet of riddles featuring fleas (``What did the flea say when the puppy ran away? Doggone!''), ants (``What bug likes picnics, dresses in a red suit, and has a white beard? Ant-a Claus!'') and other assorted insectoid and arachnid types. The riddle selection is a good one, and the format makes for appealing easy-readingone riddle and answer per page, accompanied by a cartoon illustration. The pictures are full-color this time, and their funny critter cast in multi-legged costume provides comic explanation and elaboration. When the riddle bug bites, this will give youngsters a buzz; when they drive you buggy, just remind them why frogs are so happy (``They eat whatever bugs them'').
