MOKE AND POKI IN THE RAIN FOREST

Moke and Poki represent another of those fondly imperfect little friendships that have been riding along in Frog and Toad's wake. The two Hawaiian menehunes, along with a small cast of animals, build a house (and abandon it when the rain gets in), sing to the moon (Moke is discovered to be out of tune so he is named conductor), paddle a bean-pod canoe, and watch for a rainbow. The turquoise and coral pictures contain their share of cutesy cliches (the friends diminutive stature is highlighted by the mushrooms that tower over them as they gather sticks for the house), and the chief value of this newest exercise in first grade fraternity is the change of scenery.
