Reviews

A Junior Library Guild Selection

"This entry in The Masterpiece Adventures beginning chapter-book series reestablishes the childlike fun that Marvin and James share, while acknowledging that fear of change can provoke worries. Enhanced by large type and pen-and-ink illustrations on every page, the well-paced story is just right for transitional readers."--Booklist
