Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4–When cousin Teddy visits, Willie is jealous of the attention he receives from friends and family, especially her dad. During a fishing trip, she concocts a hair-brained scheme to get noticed, resulting in unexpected consequences. The African-American characters are realistic and likable, and they experience circumstances and emotions common to most young readers. The childlike, first-person narrative will reel readers in and the quirky, cartoon illustrations will keep the pages turning. A winning addition for moving-up collections.–Ajoke’ T. I.
