9780374384463: Up and at 'Em with Winnie & Ernst

Winnie the possum and Ernst the otter are back with four new antic tales. In the first, an excursion to Backwater Beach is complicated by the contents of a piggy bank. Then Winnie gets a telescope and must ad-lib, as the viewing for her friends is disrupted by cloud cover. When Winnie and Ernst baby-sit for Mrs. H. Penny, they aren't prepared for her eggs to hatch. And finally, what better diversion for a February than to organize a poetry contest - but who knew what chaos such an event could cause?

Winnie & Ernst, the first book about this charming duo, was compared to the great works of James Marshall, Arnold Lobel, and Beatrix Potter. Children ready for a step up from early Beginning Readers will find plenty more to enjoy in these new stories.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. The endearing animal friends from Winnie and Ernst (2003) return in another chapter book of adventures. In the first episode, possum Winnie and otter Ernst travel to a beachside carnival and realize that favorite objects--seashells, special stones--can have as much value as money. In following chapters, the friends stargaze with friends, babysit a nest of hatching chickens, and, finally, host a poetry contest. As in the previous title, Freschet's scenes of the animated friends, colored with tropical-fruit shades, reinforce the cozy camaraderie between the animals. The gentle humor and mildly madcap adventures will charm young children, while older kids (and adults) will enjoy some of the more sophisticated jokes, such as the spot-on portrayal of the posturing, aspiring poets. Children will eagerly await the likable friends' next adventures. Gillian Engberg
