Summary

James's father, Karl, and Christina, his friend from the museum, are getting married! James is the ring bearer and he is excited but also nervous. He loves Christina yet he is worried about losing his dad to a different family and a different life. And what if, at the wedding, James drops the ring? His beetle best friend Marvin promises to help him, but Marvin ends up with an even more critical job when something goes wrong. Will the whole wedding be ruined? Not if Marvin and James and Elaine can help it.

This young chapter book for emergent readers captures the miniature world and friendship of Marvin the beetle and James. Complete with charming illustrations on every page by Kelly Murphy.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When James learns of his father's upcoming wedding, the boy has mixed emotions. As he confides in his best friend, Marvin (a beetle), he's happy for the engaged couple, but worried about what might change. Just before the ceremony, the wedding ring falls through a metal grate. Marvin and his sister help James retrieve the ring, and the story concludes happily. This entry in The Masterpiece Adventures beginning chapter-book series reestablishes the childlike fun that Marvin and James share, while acknowledging that fear of change can provoke worries. Enhanced by large type and pen-and-ink illustrations on every page, the well-paced story is just right for transitional readers.--Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2019 Booklist"
