Publisher's Description

Cork is a short muskrat who likes to clean. Fuzz is a tall possum who would rather play than tidy. When Cork tells Fuzz to help with chores, Fuzz says, "You are not the boss of me!" Can the two friends find a way to have fun and clean up?
 
The tenth book in this easy-to-read series is a gently funny story of two best friends who, whether messy or clean, always find a way to work together.

Author Bio

Dori Chaconas was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1938. The second child in a family of seven, Dori fell into the role of storyteller, nursery rhyme singer, and general entertainer for her siblings. She claims she learned about story pacing early. If the story action lagged, her fidgety audience would either scatter or start a poking war.

She has been married to Nick, her high school sweetheart, for 44 years. Everyone says the romance will last. They raised four daughters, and are now enjoying three grandsons—especially Grandpa, having been outnumbered by women all those years.

When their daughters were young, Dori wrote for them. She published three picture books and more than fifty stories in children's magazines. In the 70's, her interest turned to yarn embroidery design and she sold designs to major needlework companies and national magazines.

In 1997, Dori started writing stories again, partly to keep her grandsons from fidgeting or starting poking wars. Her stories reflect the warmth of family life. Dori gives credit to her parents for giving her a strong sense of family, and to her children and grandchildren for keeping it alive.

Editorial Reviews

"The balance of text and art is just right, and the bright illustrations show these friends working out their differences. . . . A solid addition to a well-established series."--School Library Journal
