Finders Keepers (Cork And Fuzz)
Finders Keepers (Cork and Fuzz)
Cork is a short muskrat who likes to find things. Fuzz is a tall possum who likes to keep things. Fuzz wants to keep Cork's lost stone when he finds it. But a chipmunk runs away with it. Who will say "finders keepers" now?
From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 2—Best friends Cork the muskrat and Fuzz the possum ("kind of the same, but different") continue their adventures when Fuzz finds Cork's new green stone, recently lost, and wants to keep it. They argue, but reconcile when a chipmunk makes off with the coveted item. This addition to the series maintains the characters' personalities as well as the authenticity of the friendship—like real children, they have to compromise and think the best of one another if they are to retain their relationship. McCue continues to give these characters a variety of expressions and convincing body language while remaining true to their animal natures. A welcome addition to easy-reader collections.—Lisa Egly Lehmuller, St. Patrick's Catholic School, Charlotte, NC
