    Molly's Reviews

    My students agreed the illustrations are great, the story had potential and little kids who don¿t know better will be swayed by it. They also thought the main character should have shown some remorse, mended her ways and been honest when she apologized. A book that presents a non apologetic and feeling no remorse for her behavior, misbehaving child in the position of role model is not one that I will soon return to my classroom. Lie to everyone by pretending remorse is not the lesson that I want to teach to my own children or to others. I would like to see more work by this author/illustrator team, however I would like to see this particular character presented in a more responsible manner and as a more responsible little girl. I agree with my students, she is not a cheery little imp, she is a willful, misbehaving girl who needs to learn discipline. Reaction from my students ran the gamut from `I would be given time out,¿ to `I would be grounded,¿ to `I might even get a spanking, if I did any of the things that girl did.¿ The fact that the little girl continued and continued to misbehave and not make any change even though consequence was offered was troubling to me as a teacher and a parent.

    Creative and Hilarious

    '17 Things...' tells the tale of a creative and impish girl who has many wonderful ideas that somehow are not perceived as positively by traditional PC adults. As the un-named heroine tries to implement her plans, she is thwarted time and again and is 'not allowed to' do the action that blossomed from her idea. Noted novelist and editor Jenny Offill has a great success in her first children's offering the book has won several awards from teacher and library associations and is well into its second printing. The book is fabulously illustrated by Nancy Carpenter and is a visual treat. Hard to understand the disapproval of the few reviewers who seem to prefer a contrite child who never strays into adventure and misadventure.

    I laughed so hard, I cried

    I loved this book. Sure, it isn't a good example for kids, but it is a good way to get a line of communication going. It certainly shows some things many kids would never think of doing, but if you're listening and talking with your kids while reading it or after you read it I think it's great!
