Grade 1-3?In three short episodes, Bertie retrieves his baseball from grouchy Mr. Muckleberg's yard, encounters a fairy godfather while struggling with learning to play the saxophone, and adjusts to bowling with an unfamiliar ball. Through trial and error, he prevails each time and earns a secondary reward of a hot-fudge sundae. Written with a lighthearted touch, the text describes Bertie's determination and good nature. The short sentences in large-print text are set against plenty of white space, a format inviting to beginning chapter-book readers. Exaggerated pencil sketches that add humor and heighten interest appear on every two-page spread. A fitting addition.?Christina Dorr, Calcium Primary School, NY

Gr. 1^-3, younger for reading aloud. This easy chapter book is excellent for beginning readers because the text is broken up into three related short stories. The hero of the title is Bertie, a likable going-into-second-grade kid, whose adventures always end with a hot fudge sundae. All three stories make the point that hard work and persistence pay off, particularly the finale, a humorous bowling adventure in which Bertie is determined to get his first strike despite getting stuck with a "plain, old, ugly orange" ball instead of the beautiful forest green one with silver streaks. Generously illustrated with attractive black-and-white and gray-toned drawings, this trio of clever tales is versatile enough to be used with middle-grade reluctant readers, as a read-aloud for younger children, or as an alternative reading selection for inclusion youngsters.

"Hot Fudge Hero" is an excellent choice for beginning readers who feel that they're getting ready to graduate to chapter books. Like the Henry and Mudge series or the Little Bill series by Cosby, each page is carefully illustrated and the sentences are short and easy to read. The text generally avoids contractions like "it's" and "they're", which may seem a bit akward when reading out loud-most English speakers will abbreviate common words to contractions when they can-but helps the developing reader by avoiding all those confusing apostrophes.
The stories are fun and the stuff of everyday life, which goes to show that you don't have to conquer the universe or swim the oceans to have a good time and enjoy reading! Besides, when you're done, you may even get to go out for a hot fudge yourself!
Love your kids, and make them laugh.
Thanks for reading.
