Reviews

PreS-Gr 1-Say "hallo" again to the hapless yet humorous star of The Adventures of Bert (Farrar, 2001). In this delightful sequel, the man-child again charms readers in his oh-so-British way, beginning with an introduction to his waggly dog named- Bert! As in the first book, this one is divided into short chapters that vividly capture the quirky aspects of Bert's mundane life. When his mother serves soggy cooked cabbage, he furtively grabs it up, squeezes out the excess water, tosses it into his napkin, and hides it in his pocket while thanking Mum for the lovely dinner. And when Bert the dog gets lost, there are lots more Berts around to help. Greatly contributing to the merriment are Briggs's colored-pencil and watercolor illustrations and effective layout, which perfectly complement the understated jocular tone of the limited text. Deceptively simple yet full of fun, this is another fine go-round with our friend Bert.-Teri Markson, Stephen S.

Collaborators on The Adventures of Bert, Allan Ahlberg and Raymond Briggs team up for a second round of silliness in A Bit More Bert. Cheeky chapters introduce absurd scenarios (in "Bert's Dog," Bert takes his dog, also named Bert, for a walk; in "Bert's Chips," the boy shares his snack with Grandma Bert, Baby Bert and Bert the dog); the unadulterated text and comic strip-style illustrations play up the slapstick humor.
