PreS-Gr 1—This series title focuses on short "i" sounds. Coxe has created beautiful scenes with positioned, well-dressed stuffed animals, and a variety of props. Pig (a pig) and Twig (a mouse) are playing Princess. First Pig is the princess making wishes that Twig brings to fruition: lipstick, a picnic—complete with basket, shrimp, and cream cheese sandwiches—and a magic trick. After her three wishes, Pig refuses to change places and let Twig be princess. Twig grants Pig three more wishes—still using that short "i." When Twig asks again to be princess, Pig refuses once more, and so there is a bit of drama. Twig heads off, Pig misses Twig, and so there are apologies and new wishes for Twig. Early readers will pore over the pictures enjoying each little detail. As an unusual approach to easy readers, with photos of real stuffed animals and their accessories, this is new and interesting series. The fact that the phonics are highlighted in such an obvious way should not be a turnoff. VERDICT Parents and teachers can use these titles for reading as well as writing activities.—Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City
"Creatively composed photographs are the highlight of this distinctive picture book. . . . [It has] the feel of a very large epic on a very small scale." —Publishers Weekly on Benjamin and Bumper to the Rescue
"Reluctant readers will be drawn in by the title, as well as by the colorful cover. The clear, full-color illustrations are warm and reflect Mirabel and Maxie’s feelings for one another." —School Library Journal on The Great Snake Escape
"It’s not easy to get pop culture into an easy-to-read, but Coxe managed to do so in this clever book starring Radish Rabbit. . . . Bold pictures are the right complement for this sassy story." —Booklist on R Is for Radish

I had never seen such nice photos in a children's book before. When I was reading to my daughter and looked at the pictures, it just took my breath away and she could not stop pointing at every detail in the picture.
I really recommend it to any parent or teacher out there.
