Cork is a short muskrat who likes to clean, but his pal Fuzz is a tall possum who would rather play than tidy up. When Cork tells Fuzz to help with chores, Fuzz says, "You are not the boss of me!" Can the two friends find a way to have fun and clean up? In her text for readers 4 to 8, Doris Chaconas offers a realistic portrayal of how friends relate to each other, while in her sunny, very tactile paintings, Lisa McCue takes two animals we normally aren't that fond of, and turns them into irresistibly charming characters.
