Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Sarah Simpson's family thinks that she is extraordinary, but she feels ordinary and is anxious to find a special quality that sets her apart. This concept, by itself, is interesting and well fleshed out. At school, she tries to trick the substitute teacher by switching names with her best friend, but that doesn't solve her "problem." She tries other ideas to no avail. Her solution arrives with an opportunity to help the parents of a classmate whose restaurant isn't doing well. Much too quickly, Sarah comes up with a plan-a T-shirt advertising "Wongs' Wings," a house specialty. Appealing full-page and spot illustrations appear throughout. Readers will like the protagonist, her family, and her friends. However, the author spends so much time setting up the Simpsons that there is almost no time for the story of the Chinese restaurant and for Sarah's individuality to develop.-Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Eight-year-old Sara Simpson wants to do something extra-ordinary, but she thinks she's the most normal girl on the planet. She trades names with a friend in class when they have a substitute teacher, but that only results in a lower spelling-test grade. She thinks having a middle name will help, but her friends make suggestions like "Tornado" and "Taco." Her dad calls her the "Idea Girl," and she finally comes up with the perfect idea for saving her favorite restaurant. It not only works, but it also fulfills her wish that people would say, "Here comes Sarah Simpson!" Newbery Award-winning author Naylor enters Amber Brown territory with her newest series Simply Sarah. Sarah's a spunky, creative girl with a multicultural group of friends living in Chicago. Her mother's an artist and her father is away on business. Ramsey's watercolor illustrations are a nice complement even if they don't match the text in a couple places. The shelves might be full of similar series, but Sarah should find her fans with a little help. (Fiction 7-10)
