A welcome new paperback series features first-grade boys and girls who are members of Pee Wee Scout Troop 23. Delton has a keen ear for the joys and miseries of being a six-year-old. In each book, eight short, well-paced chapters chronicle such trials as the boredom of school for those who already know how to read and spell; the frustration of having bigger feet than rich, stuck-up Rachel; the shame of crying at camp from homesickness. The conclusions are satisfying, the cover and interior illustrations diverting. This series should quickly garner a following. Ages 6-8. (July)
