PreSchool-Grade 2-The friendly dog twins are back. Moffie is 10 minutes older than Morgie and likes to control every situation. After Mama talks to her about being too bossy, Moffie decides to let her brother be Boss for a Day. Since he is unaccustomed to taking charge, she shows him how, making every decision about what they should wear, eat, and play. In Hide-and-Seek, the siblings and their friends want to play hide-and-seek during recess. However, it takes them all week long to decide on the rules. Clever details include the bulletin board that changes daily and the reoccurring illustrated recess bell with the hand-lettered "RING!" that visually mimics the sound. The charming illustrations done in cheerful colors and with expressive characters complement both texts. Beginning readers will love these entertaining additions.Debbie Stewart, Grand Rapids Public Library, MI
