Booklist: The fifth chapter book in the Viking Easy-to-Read series about best friends Cork and Fuzz, who are “kind of the same but different,” has the short muskrat and the tall possum once again in a standoff. The detailed ink-and-watercolor illustrations show the furry creatures’ body language as Cork is thrilled to find a shiny green stone, then angry when his friend grabs it and won’t give it back. Quarrels make for great drama to read and reread, especially when kids know that the friends will make up and laugh together.— Hazel Rochman
