Description


A new early chapter book series where adventure is always just around the corner.

This series is part of Scholastic's early chapter book line called Branches, which is aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!

Meet Boris! He lives with his mom and dad in Hogg Bay. Their home is a van that once traveled all over the world. Then one morning, Boris feels a jolt. Could it be? Is the van really moving? Is Boris on an adventure at last?

But when Boris ends up on a trip to a wildlife refuge instead of the jungle safari he'd imagined, he ends up having an adventure he'll never forget. Because for this little warthog, life never quite turns out as he plans.

Praise for BORIS ON THE MOVE:

*"For emergent readers who view themselves as accomplished (or wish to be seen that way), this, one of the publisher's Branches line, might just be the perfect choice."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Joyner moves effortlessly between small written sections and big illustrations with comic style text. Really gorgeous...But above all, they're just ridiculously fun boy books."
