Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Tugg and his best friend Teeny are at it again. This time there are three short stories. The first is a mystery. Teeny is missing her writing hat and a number of their jungle friends are also missing items. Pinkie Flamingo has lost a feather, Flap the elephant has lost an umbrella and Margie the barge who is a hippopotamus has lost an inner tube. Tugg is playing detective, but he really does solve the mystery. The illustrations are amusing and the expressions of dismay, unhappiness and finally joy are clearly shown in expressions and body positions. The next story involves a race between two brother zebras to see who is the fastest. One quibble here is that according to all this reviewer has read, no two zebras have exactly the same stripe pattern, so it is a tad misleading to imply that this is the case with the brothers. The final story entitled "Wind-fishing" is also a bit of a mystery that ends up with everyone wind-fishing. The closing page lets readers know that more stories about these two friends who are totally opposite are forthcoming. This book is part of a new series "I am a Reader!" targeted to kids who are indeed readers—Lexile Measure 600L and a word count of 994.
