Overview

On Monday morning Bertie woke up bright and early.

He remembered that it was Picture Day.

He remembered that Mrs. Hughes

told them to look spiffy.

Bertie is determined to look his very best for his second grade school picture on Monday. In fact, he even plans to wear his red polka-dot bow tie. But before the weekend's over, Bertie loses a front tooth, gets a shiner, and receives a "terribly interesting" haircut from his little sister Eloise.

Bertie and Eloise, whom young readers met in Hot Fudge Hero, are back—and as charming as ever. In their smart and playful style, Pat Brisson and Diana Cain Bluthenthal capture these endearing characters in all of their trials and triumphs.

Bertie tries to get spiffy for his class picture, but several disastrous events result in him looking "interesting" instead.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Just before the second grade picture day, Bertie loses a tooth, leaving him with a four-tooth gap in his smile. Then he collides with his sister and develops a multi-colored shiner. Finally, his preschool sister gives him a "terribly interesting" haircut. But Bertie, a low-key guy, amazingly patient, not given to temper or tears, takes this all with equanimity, showing up for the picture in a "spiffy" outfit complete with polka dot bowtie. Perfect easy-reader format with four chapters each divided into headed subsections invites hardworking new readers to pause if they need to. Bluthenthal's drawings decorate every page and depict kids from the fifties--girls in dresses, boys in striped T-shirts--but the sweet way Bertie forgives his sister for cutting his hair and Bertie's calm acceptance of a kickball to the face seems to echo that era, as well. Retro, maybe, but nice. 2000, Henry Holt, Ages 6 to 9, $16.00. Reviewer: Susan Hepler—Children's Literature
School Library Journal
Gr 1-2-In four quick-reading chapters, second-grade Bertie, who was introduced in Hot Fudge Hero (Holt, 1995), is shown to be a good friend, a great brother, and an all-around nice boy. School pictures will be taken on Monday and he wants to look "spiffy." Over the weekend one catastrophe after another prevents him from looking his best-he loses a tooth, gets a "shiner" from a poorly aimed kickball, and gets a "terribly interesting" haircut from his younger sister. Bertie's sense of humor is evident throughout, showing how much he cares for his sister and doesn't want to hurt her feelings. Early chapter-book readers will relish this child's unique, irrepressible personality. Bluthenthall's black-and-white cartoons add a real spirit of fun to the story. This is a surefire hit of a sequel.-Kay Bowes, Concord Pike Library, Wilmington, DE Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
