Booklist - 07/01/2019 When James learns of his father’s upcoming wedding, the boy has mixed emotions. As he confides in his best friend, Marvin (a beetle), he’s happy for the engaged couple, but worried about what might change. Just before the ceremony, the wedding ring falls through a metal grate. Marvin and his sister help James retrieve the ring, and the story concludes happily. 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. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
