Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
Books, books, books, Dewey Booker loves books. He has been saving his money to spend at Book Fair Day at school, but he is worried that he will not get the chance to buy the things he really wants. Because his class is scheduled to be the last to visit the book fair, he spends the day trying to sneak into the library early. His antics are many. He tries to sneak in with the youngsters from Book Buddies (older students read aloud to younger ones). While searching for the missing class hamster he finds his way to the library, and when the playground ball goes astray he is sure that it has gone into the library's open window. Each time he is retrieved by his teacher, who gently tells him that he will have a turn later in the day. One begins to get the idea that a master plot is being hatched to play a little trick on Dewey. The librarian has been calling the teacher on his cell phone and reporting on Dewey's efforts to get "first dibbs" on particular books. Once the class finally goes to the library, his fellow students bombard him with requests for help in choosing books, advice on selections already made, and other ways of keeping him busy. He is totally dismayed to discover that all of the books have been purchased—except for the entire box that the librarian has held back. Throughout the day he has been observing the books that interested Dewey and has set them aside. Dewey is thrilled, and he even has enough money in his special book bank to purchase them all. He had also walked to school that morning, pulling his special book wagon in order to be able to get his treasures home in the afternoon. The colorful cartoon drawings are filled with little humorous notes. For example,the man walking his dog in the morning is also in the last picture observing Dewey dragging his wagon home after school. Librarians and teachers will adore sharing this one with students—it will require more than one reading to be able to pick up on all of the things included in the clever illustrations. The book titles on the endpapers, on the shelves, and book cases will be amusing to all. Be sure to watch the facial expressions of both the adults and the students; Wickstrom captures them wonderfully well.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Fans of Plourde's School Picture Day (2002), Teacher Appreciation Day (2003), and Pajama Day (2005, all Dutton) will recognize many old friends in this humorous episode. Here, Dewey Booker is so excited about Book Fair Day that he wheels his wagon to school to carry home all of his purchases. When he learns that his class is not scheduled to visit the fair until the end of the day, he devises a number of schemes to get to the library before the books are sold out. In one determined attempt, he disguises himself as a kindergartner by walking on his knees. Each plan is stymied by his teacher, Mrs. Shepherd, and Mr. Opus, the school librarian. Dewey's day ends happily when he realizes that both his teacher and Mr. Opus are as eager as he is to get the right books into his hands. Plays on words related to books and reading abound. Wickstrom's colorful cartoon illustrations capture the zaniness of the boy's antics. Readers who love a good story as much as Dewey does are in for a treat.-Maura Bresnahan, High Plain Elementary School, Andover, MA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Dewey loves books of all kinds. He's so excited about book fair day, he gets up before the sun rises and walks to school. (There won't be room for his purchases on the bus; he takes a wagon.) Dewey is horrified to find that his class will be the last to visit the book fair. He's certain everything will be gone. He tries three times to sneak down to the library to shop, but Mrs. Shepherd catches him every time. When the class finally gets there, Dewey spends so much time helping his friends find the right books, that everything is sold . . . except for the box of books the librarian was saving for him. Plourde and Wickstrom's fourth story about Mrs. Shepherd's class is not the funniest or most inventive, but young bibliophiles will enjoy reading about this kindred spirit. Wickstrom's smiling, spindly-legged watercolors of a multicultural classroom are a big plus. (Picture book. 4-8)
