Big Chuck, a woodchuck, is playing with Rabbit, Raccoon, Chipmunk, and the mice brothers when he spots a pair of blue pants. Chuck must have them. He holds up the game while he struggles to put them on. "You are too big and the pants are too small," his friends tell him, but Chuck thinks he looks spiffy. Sidesplitting illustrations show a determined Chuck, stuffed into his much-too-tiny blue pants and trying in vain to keep up. Comfort and fun finally trump fashion as Chuck sheds the pants and joins the gang for a game of hide and seek. A story about self-image and true friends. An I Like to Read(R) book. Guided Reading Level E.
