    Cute book, short story with pictures My four year old loves for me to read this to him Too advanced for him to try to read on his own Might be too boring and simple for an older kid that can read but maybe not I love how there are pictures on nearly every page so it s engaging for the Littles.

    Having thoroughly enjoyed the original story of James and Marvin Masterpiece by Elise Broach , I was thrilled to hear about this new series about the two And I was not disappointed While this book series is for younger readers, the same charm found in the original permeates the book Marvin is very cute for a cockroach with some serious artistic talent In this first book, Marvin is worried that James will find a new friend while he s on vacation and not want to be friends with him when he gets ho [...]

    Marvin the beetle, and his best friend James, a boy, have a sweet yet unusual friendship But when James and his family go on vacation for a week, Marvin worries that James will find a new best friend while he is away Left on his own with no James to talk to, Marvin has to resort to playing with his cousin, Elaine who is sometimes fun, but often annoying It s Elaine who leads him to her favorite new place to play a black box with a hole in it that is filled with wood shavings The two climb up an [...]

    It was okay I guess Kinda boring Elaine was a pretty flat character whose personality only consisted of female and annoying I used female as a personality trait here because a pink bow is the only way to distinguish her in the illustrations from Marvin aside from some tears I guess the writer here was trying to make the story short n sweet , a cute little story about a distraught bug for kids But really over all failed except to bring up a few interesting topics Several times in and on the cover [...]

  11. Betsy

    I really enjoyed Broach s middle grade novels like Missing on Superstition Mountain, and we always need well written chapter books But I think my hopes were a bit too high for this one Kids might like it better, especially if they haven t read her other books, but this book felt a bit slow to me It s not a fast story, and the pacing probably fits the story just fine, but it feels very young It s cute and the illustrations are well done It s probably a great fit for precocious K 2nd grade reader [...]

  12. Penny McGill

    Not the fantastic return to the world of crickets that I hoped it would be BUT it is a solid early reader kind of book I think it would be a fun choice for a family read aloud and a delight for a grade one reader to take on as their own reading option Seeing the world from the eyes of an insect is always a delight think of Chester in Times Square Charlotte even Sophie from Sophie s Masterpiece but the story was simplified to suit a younger reader s vocabulary.Perhaps following the reading of thi [...]

    I really loved reconnecting with James and Marvin, the boy and beetle friends from Elise Broach s wonderful book, MASTERPIECE This is the first book in a new series of beginning chapter books The reading level is 1.5.The subject of this story is one that children, and some adults, struggle with when close friends make new friends there are sometimes feelings of insecurity and jealousy In fact, the most recent Elephant Piggie book by Mo Willems, MY NEW FRIEND IS SO FUN also deals with this subjec [...]

    I was thrilled to see what I thought was a sequel to the excellent Masterpiece , a young adult novel I ve gifted to several 10 to 12 year olds in the past year or two However, be WARNED this is a first chapter book suited to 6 to 8 year olds It doesn t really reference the earlier book, but just picks up with the friendship between Marvin and James I read this book to my three year old granddaughter over the course of a single day It has engaging black and white illustrations on every page, and [...]

    When Marvin s best friend James goes to the beach for a vacation, the artistically talented beetle is worried After all, James just might end up having such a good time that he won t miss Marvin at all Fans of Masterpiece may enjoy this story since it continues to explore the relationship between a human and a beetle, but since it s intended for younger readers, they may not be particularly impressed Still, there are enough aspects of the book to keep folks reading I enjoyed how Marvin and Elain [...]

    Oh, I did enjoy reading this charming young chapter book to my son 7 who read some of the words as we went along A delightful story of friendship between a boy and his yes beetle friend Who knew so much melodrama and humor could be milked out of a scene inside a pencil sharpener And those illustrations by Kelly Murphy add so much, it s almost a long form picture book I have to mention that the production is beautiful and the interiors are in black and sepia which really adds to the experience of [...]
