Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julie Lodermeier
Alice is always in the middle. She is not like her naughty, little sister Rosie who is always in trouble. She is not like her big brother Oliver who thinks he is perfect. All of that changes on the way to grandma and grandpa's house. Alice not only beats her brother at a game but breaks a family record during a long road trip. Now Alice is not just in the middle, she is the center of attention. She gets to pick a super special prize while her brother sulks. This starts out as fun but turns excruciating when her sore loser brother suffers another defeat. This is a fun read about family dynamics. It has a humorous take on the touchy subject of favoritism. This book shows how families dealing with sibling rivalry can still show a soft spot for a sibling handling disappointment. Alice is an endearing character and readers with empathize with her. Reviewer: Julie Lodermeier
Kirkus Reviews
Sibling strife is cleverly explored in this funny tale of a gentle girl caught between her prim, showboat brother and her obnoxious younger sister. Alice is often in the middle of Rosie and Oliver; the little girl wreaks havoc and then pins the blame on her stuffed penguin, and her older brother swings between bossiness and brooding. Their caring parents attempt to be fair, but are clearly exhausted. Alice especially dreads visits to their Grandma Fox (who makes it known that Oliver is her favorite), but is astonished at her good fortune one day when she actually wins a game against him during the car ride there. Oliver, of course, pouts and cries injustice over her win and this eventually leads them into uncharted territory when Oliver loses his cool in front of his adoring grandmother. Kennemore's portrayal of a loving, but overwhelmed family is written with understanding and a light touch, and the understated Alice is an affable protagonist. Spoor's expressive ink-and-wash drawings are a fine addition to this quirky story. (Fiction. 8-12)
