About the Author

Richard Torrey grew up in a family of boys--with two brothers, two half brothers, and two stepbrothers--where entire weekends could be occupied by a couple of cardboard boxes, a few crayons, and a lot of imagination. As a brother, and later as a father of two, he learned that compromise is a big part of successful play, as the two children in The Almost Terrible Playdate soon find out. He is the author-illustrator of three Beans Baker books in the Step into Reading line, in addition to numerous other books for children. He lives in Shoreham, New York.


Gr 1-3-Thanks to great teamwork, Beans and his friend Chester have led the Wildcats to the soccer championship play-off. But during practice, the boys collide, and Beans is left with a broken foot. Chester feels terrible, and the other players make him feel worse. He hides during the big game, but the coach has an idea that may bring the boy back to play, and Beans knows where to find his friend. This simply written book introduces several weighty themes: blame, guilt and forgiveness, friendship, and teamwork. The winning pass is made by a girl (one of several on the team), which broadens the appeal of the story. Cartoon illustrations add a little humor. The story is straightforward and will satisfy students who are beginning to read independently. There is enough substance for a first book report or a discussion of the social themes that are introduced.-Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
