School Library Journal - 06/01/2022 K-Gr 2—Fergus and Zeke continue their adventures, this time in the school's field day challenge. The two mice are eager to participate in the many sporting events, but they find their size makes activities either too easy or too hard. Determined, the clever pair create their own events to take part in the big day. When they are accidentally locked out of the school, all they've learned during the field day helps them make it back to the safety of their classroom home. The text is accessible for emerging readers; each page has corresponding images, so youngsters can draw on the vibrant illustrations to comprehend the plot. The story is targeted for young readers, but there are enough new words introduced like "shimmied" and "billowed" to help expand vocabulary. Ross's illustrations perfectly complement the text and are essential for anyone who has grown to know and love Fergus and Zeke. VERDICT Those unfamiliar with Fergus and Zeke should make them the next addition to their young reader collection. This lovable duo are Frog and Toad for a new generation.—Heidi Dechief - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
