Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What does it mean to be a hero. Fitch and Chip find out when they participate in Hero Day at school. Chip is all dressed up in a cape just like his TV hero Hyper Hog. Fitch seems to have his regular clothes on, but there is a big green tree on his t-shirt and his hero is Timberwolf who protects the forests—the giant redwoods and the rainforests. Chip is really puzzled because Timberwolf does not wear a cape, he doesn't fly and he has never seen him on TV. When they get to school it turns out the Fitch is once again the only one not dressed like Hyper Hog. He is a bit worried about being the lone wolf. Chip doesn't want his friend to feel alone, so he gets rid of his mask and cape and Fitch draws a tree on his pal's t-shirt. Now they are ready to face all the kids as a team. They rescue a little girl who trips and fall into a bush, and Fitch even sings a mending song to the little bush. The closing scene of Fitch imaging what Timberwolf might look like in a cape is right on for the story. Colorful illustrations of these two pals fill each page and of course for some kids the pun in the title will fly right over their heads but the message of friendship will come through as well as the concern for and care of the environment. Book Two in the "Fitch & Chip" series which is a Level three book in the larger "Ready-To-Read" series. 2003, Atheneum/Simon & Schuster, Ages 6 to 8.
