KIRKUS REVIEW

Best pals Winnie and Ernst have each other’s back at all times. Like the first offering, this early chapter book is four related slices of possum and otter life. Silly situations abound and hilarious challenges face these friends. From Winnie’s full piggy bank that is really filled with Ernst’s strange ideas of treasure, to an astronomy party threatened by clouds, an egg-sitting gig that becomes a live chick chase, or an amusing poetry slam, Freschet brings a fresh voice to the buddy story for young readers. Her light-hearted full-color illustrations pepper each page with all the emotions that best friends can have for one another. With the same generous font and pleasing layout found in the first installment, this is a perfect choice for the reader looking for a new challenge after easy readers. The humorous situations and amusing illustrations will leave them ready for more. (Fiction. 5-8)
