Cork the muskrat can’t find a thing to do until he yells at a log and the log answers back. When he kicks it down the hill, the log says “Ee—yow!” Then out pops Fuzz the possum. Cork and Fuzz chat and find out they are very different from one another. Fuzz likes to eat fresh beetles, but Cork prefers roots and seeds - “veggie stuff.” Cork loves the water and floats like a cork; Fuzz is afraid of water and sinks like a rock. When a pinecone hits Fuzz’s head and he doesn’t move, Cork won’t leave his side. To find out what happens to Fuzz and Cork, read this warm story of unexpected friendship.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Awards nominee, 2008-2009)
