Reviews

Gr 1-2-In Party Time, Mia listens to her older sister's stories about her experiences at the "fairy shop" and imagines all sorts of wonders. When she goes to the same party center, she finds that anticipation is the greater joy. The story compares two perspectives. Bad Buster depicts a family of social outcasts. After facing difficulty with his peers, young Buster finds that animals respect and respond to him. When he stops a burglary and is treated as a hero, his social life starts to improve; however, he still finds time to be bad. These easy chapter books may motivate reluctant readers, who will appreciate the humor hidden in the stories. Both titles are illustrated with black-and-white line drawings in a cartoon style. The easy reading level allows students to read them independently and will make for good discussion starters. However, some of the phrasing and structure in Party Time, such as "she joined in," "she got cross," and "have a turn" might confuse emerging readers.-Kathleen Pavin, Purdy Elementary School Library, Fort Atkinson, WI Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
