Best friends Cork & Fuzz are back, but the spirit of competition is driving them apart. A running race, a game of stickball, and a game of tackleball all end in victory for Fuzz the possum, and frustration for Cork the muskrat, who was certain he would come out on top. When Cork suggests a swimming race, Fuzz doesn’t even have time to say he can’t swim before Cork is across the pond. But when Cork thinks Fuzz has sunk, winning no longer matters in Dori Chaconas’ sweetly comical beginning reader featuring Lisa McCue’s finely detailed illustrations. (Ages 4–7)
