Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Follows the humorous adventures of best friends Winnie the possum and Ernst the otter as they break their piggy bank, babysit eggs, hold a telescope party, and enter a poetry contest. Winnie the possum and Ernst the otter are back with four new antic tales. In the first, an excursion to Backwater Beach is complicated by the contents of a piggy bank. Then Winnie gets a telescope and must ad-lib, as the viewing for her friends is disrupted by cloud cover. When Winnie and Ernst baby-sit for Mrs. H. Penny, they aren't prepared for her eggs to hatch. And finally, what better diversion for a February than to organize a poetry contest - but who knew what chaos such an event could cause? Winnie & Ernst, the first book about this charming duo, was compared to the great works of James Marshall, Arnold Lobel, and Beatrix Potter. Children ready for a step up from early Beginning Readers will find plenty more to enjoy in these new stories.
