The Collectors (Cork and Fuzz) by Dori Chaconas- ADVISABLE

Chaconas, Dori. McCue, Lisa. The Collectors (Cork and Fuzz), 32 pgs. Puffin, 2010. $3.99. Language-G; Violence-G; Sexual Content-G. Back Cover: “Cork is a short muskrat who likes to collect shiny stones. Fuzz is a tall possum who also likes to collect shiny stones. Fuzz tries to collect a “stone” from a duck’s nest and, in turn, the mama duck tries to collect him. Will Cork be able to save his friend?” This is a great level reader. The story is interesting and fun. We loved the ending with the creative solution to Fuzz and Cork’s dilemma. EL (K-3). ADVISABLE. Reviewer: SL.
