Bestselling author Spencer Johnson teams up with artist Steve Pileggi to teach younger readers his "a-mazingly" Cheesy -- and highly successful -- message.
Simplifying his tale about Sniff, Scurry, Hem, and Haw, Johnson now gives kids an easy method to "deal with change -- and win!" When the four characters come upon Cheese Station C, they think there are enough orange slices and yellow cubes to last forever. But as the cheese dwindles down, Sniff and Scurry realize it's time to set out and look for more. After Sniff and Scurry take off, Hem and Haw are left waiting for more cheese deliveries. After a while, Haw understands that he ought to get over his fear of looking, and when he finally meets up with Sniff and Scurry at the awesome Cheese Station N, he puts the "Handwriting on the Wall" about everything he's learned.
Showing that change is a positive experience if you keep aware and active, Johnson delivers a useful tool that kids can apply to school life, extracurricular activities, or certain family situations, such as moving to a new town. With Pileggi's colorful illustrations helping readers easily keep track of who's who, this far-reaching parable should have children navigating life transitions with ease -- or Cheese. Matt Warner
