Review

A Trip to the Country for Marvin & James:

A Junior Library Guild Selection

Combining adventure, imagination, and an enjoyable story, this fifth volume in the Masterpiece Adventures series ends on a reassuring note: even when they grow up, Marvin and James will always be friends. -- Booklist

Trouble at School for Marvin and James
:

Accessible to children making the transition from easy readers to chapter books . . . This series revolves around a warm, supportive, and trusting relationship between a boy and a beetle. --The Horn Book

This entry in The Masterpiece Adventures beginning chapter-book series reestablishes the childlike fun that Marvin and James share, while acknowledging that fear of change can provoke worries. Enhanced by large type and pen-and-ink illustrations on every page, the well-paced story is just right for transitional readers. --Booklist

James to the Rescue
:

"The characters have distinct personalities, the story is well-paced, and the focus on unlikely alliances and mutual trust suffuses the tale with warmth. Full of drama and heart, this is the kind of series that can show newly independent readers the power of a good story." --Kirkus Reviews

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
