Well, I was on Amazon creating a link and I saw that there was just one review. I scrolled down to read it and found that, like me, the reviewer raved about this book for her 10 year old son who is later to read. But then I saw that Robert McClung wrote more books like this one! I am so excited! Here is what I have managed to discover so far. Of course, they are all out of print (like the best early readers seem to always be), so you'll likely be buying ex-library books:
Blaze: The Story of a Striped Skunk
Sphinx: The Story of a Caterpillar
(tomato hornworm to sphinx moth)
You can see how well-loved they are by how expensive they are. You'd have to watch like a hawk for a deal. Anyone who is in the business of bringing books back into print... it appears these books would be an excellent choice!
