Beginning Pearls has a hilarious host of characters whose interactions with each other will make readers chuckle. The antics found throughout the pages are performed by Rat, Pig, goat, Zebra and the Crocs. Each character brings about their own spin on the world they live in.

Rat's ego always seems to get the better of him as he spends him time getting the best of Pig. Pig, on the other hand, has a very simplistic yet optimistic view of the world and loves corn dogs, bacon, his stuffed bear Mr. Pitters and cheese poofs. Goat has a flare for the theatrical, which would explain his love of Shakespeare, a good book and a cup of tea. He also feels he is to good to be surround by the other characters. Zebra is a little afraid of his neighbors the Crocs, especially since they view him as food. But he is hopeful that the little hedge he planted between their yards will keep them at bay. And finally, there are the Crocs. These little green characters are smart and dumb, if you can possibly imagine it and don't like zebras at all.

Readers will enjoy the full color cartoon boxes, silly antics and full biographies of these zany characters. Some of the humor seems to be a little grown up but middle grade readers should enjoy it none-the-less.
