The Mighty Movers: Big or Small, We Move All!
Appealing animal characters and a whimsical, concise plot distinguish this entertaining tale. Brown bears Fred and Ted are ``Mighty Movers.'' As the side of their truck announces, ``Big or small, we move it all!'' But they face an unusual challenge: Mr. and Mrs. Quimby, a pair of rabbits, ask Fred and Ted to move a cranky ghost from their old house into their new one. It isn't an easy task, but the Mighty Movers manage. Unadorned pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations reflect the simplicity and humor of the text; the broad shapes, solid colors and select details make the pages interesting without creating a distraction. Large print and crisp, straightforward language will enable newly independent readers to approach this book with confidence and enthusiasm. Ages 5-8. (Apr.)
