When Cork the muskrat runs into Fuzz the opossum in the woods, they begin to learn about their differences and similarities. Cork likes to eat "veggie stuff" rather than Fuzz's beetles, and Fuzz is afraid of the water Cork lives in. But they both love rocks, and a new friendship is begun throughout four simple, appealingly illustrated chapters.

Gr 2-4 These highly structured titles offer basic facts for each historical figure along with a small dose of fictionalization to add interest. They take readers methodically through the individuals birth and early years, their public life, and on to their deaths. The facts are kept to a minimum, and potentially unfamiliar words such as the Emancipation Proclamation are avoided completely. The texts are illustrated with archival photographs when available or artists renderings along with maps. Each volume also has a glossary of key words, a time line, an index (in both languages), and lists for further reading in English and in Spanish. Not all of the suggested Web links are current or equally useful. The most serious drawback to this series lies in the Spanish translations. Although technically correct for the most part, they lack native fluency, adhering too closely to the English texts. Supplementary purchases where needed.
