Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dori Butler
Annie Bananie and her friends are back! But reading the first book is not required to enjoy this short chapter book. Anyone who has ever had a best friend (or wanted a best friend) will relate to this story. Annie is the new girl at school and Leah wants to be her best friend. Unfortunately, so does everyone else. So when Annie and Leah are paired together for "Lucky Lunch Day," (which is a day kids get to go to somebody else's house for lunch instead of eating at school) Leah is determined to make it a special lunch. But that won't be easy. Her baby brother screams all the time. Her mother can' t cook. And her Grandma Gert only hears about half of what you say to her. Leah Komaiko really knows young elementary school students!
Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
It's Annie Bananie's first day at her new school and all the kids are anxious to be her new best friend. Whether the attraction is Annie's big dog Boris who accompanies her to school or her bouncy red hair that telegraphs her equally bouncy personality is unclear. But what IS clear is that all the kids in Miss Liebling's class (from dandruff-eating Eddie to neighing Nina) want to be best friends with Annie. It's the third in the series of "Annie" books, and it's a welcome addition-especially for those readers who like their classroom stories filled with unique individuals and side-splitting incidents.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4Lucky Lunch Day at Nichols School, when students have lunch at one another's houses, results in an experience Annie Bananie and her friend Libby will never forget. Since Libby's mom has an appointment and only Grandma Gert (who seems to embarrass Libby) is home, the girls, at Libby's insistence, go to a fast-food restaurant without permission. Arriving late back at school, they begin to tell about their adventure but unluckily, Annie ends up throwing up her meal all over Libby. Of course, Grandma Gert comes to the rescue. Little narrative, minimal plot, and lots of dialogue result in a fast-paced but choppy presentation in this beginning chapter book. While it does not have the humor of Barbara Park's "Junie B. Jones" series (Random), it is a quick, easy read about school and friendship for newly independent readers.Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
