Children's LiteratureWhen Cork, the Muskrat and Fuzz, the Possum meet, they do not have anything in common—or do they? Soon readers find out that Cork likes to eat veggies and Fuzz likes to eat critters, Cork loves to swim and Fuzz is scared of water. A fun, slap-stick style humor is depicted and in the end, readers discover that the two unlikely animals have more in common than seemed possible. Simple, short, easy-to-read text moves the tale along in this 32-page book. Pages are filled with detailed illustrations that offer clues to the text. Many words are one syllable; this allows early readers to succeed. The book is a Level 3 book in the "Viking Easy-to-Read" series. As such, it is geared for 6- to 9-year-old readers in grades 1 to 3. Readers at this stage are able to read the text alone and that is what they will want to do with this delightful story about Cork and Fuzz. 2005, Penguin Group/Viking, Ages 6 to 9.
