Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2Cartoon illustrations done in pen and light watercolor adorn this bland, moralistic picture book. When his older sister accidentally stumbles over him, Andrew releases a flood of angry words. The words escape, touching on a variety of people's lives including a struggling poet, a motorcyclist, a princess on horseback, a dragon, etc. When the words travel across the sea with Andrew flying after them in an unexplained manner, they come into the hands of what could be a South American woman selling fruit in a market. She bundles them up, throws them in the sea and gives Andrew some ``kind and happy...nice words.'' As Andrew flies home, he shares them with all of the people who had been affected by his outburst. Very didactic, with unexceptional illustrations, this is not a necessary purchase.Jan Shepherd Ross, Dixie Elementary Magnet School, Lexington, KY
