Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A fourth perky and good-humored book about Angel O'Leary, her small brother Rags and their mother. Mrs. O'Leary has announced her forthcoming marriage to Rudy, a clown by trade, who was introduced in a previous book. Egged on by bits of information provided by her girlfriend, Angel begins to worry that her mother isn't planning the wedding very well, if at all. She worries about invitations, flowers, the cake, the ring, the minister and her mother's dress. Reassured at last that everything is under control, Angel decides to try to relax. The wedding itself, with Rags misunderstanding his role of ring bearer he thinks he's ring bear and acts accordingly is a triumph of funny writing. Using topical and ordinary events, Delton probes the genuine emotions of her characters with a light, deft touch. Ages 8-11. October
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6 Firm fans of Angel O'Leary will claim this latest installment in her Wisconsin childhood as the best yet; new acquaintances will delight in its unfolding of her eventful tenth summer. The main event, of course, is Mrs. O'Leary's upcoming marriage to Rudy. Angel is all anticipationit will be wonderful to have a father. Her big worry develops when, knowing that Rudy will adopt the children, she learns that this means taking his name; the unpronounceable and unspellable ``Pappadopolis'' will become hers. Rudy has the sure touch, though. He gives not just a ring to his bride, but an initialled locket to Angel and a watch to Rags. Angel now knows with certainty that she will cherish his name, no matter what: it is so good to be ``the daughter of a father'' again. Delton writes with her customary verve about ordinary events and their extraordinary twists. Her characters are sure delineations of people readers all know, or wish they knew. Children will love bouncing along with these particular characters and their friends, anticipating exciting happenings, crying and laughing over the inevitable mishappenings. Katharine Bruner, Brown Middle School, Harrison, Tenn.

    Wonderful Children's Book

    Angel is a worrier. She worries about everything. Angel is just beginning her summer vacation when her mother announces her engagement and upcoming wedding to Rudy. Angel wonders what kind of dad Rudy will make because he is a clown. Angel begins to worry because her mother has not talked about wedding plans at all and the wedding is very near. Once her mother begins planning the wedding, Angel has a new worry. Rudy wants to adopt Angel and Rags, her little brother, and give them his last name. Angel finally sees that everything will be fine. The story has realistic issues that children will be able to identify with. The writing is funny and light and makes the reader want to continue reading the book. I think that the book was enjoyable and funny enough that the reader wants to find out how it will end. I enjoyed the book and I highly recommend it.
