Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Joyner moves effortlessly between small written sections and big illustrations with comic style text. Really gorgeous...But above all, they're just ridiculously fun boy books."
--Elizabeth Bird, New York Public Library
Children's Literature - Anita Lock
In the third book of this delightful early chapter collection, Boris the warthog takes young readers into yet another adventure. This time it is a field day at his school, which includes a high jump, a long jump, an egg-and-spoon race, hurdles, a tug-of-war, and finally the round-the-track marathon. Practicing for the big event, Boris notices that while he and his friends, Frederick and Alice, struggle through each activity, Eddie, the antagonist in the story, has no problems at all. In fact, he is in the lead, especially in the round-the-track marathon. Boris is convinced that he and his friends can beat Eddie, but in order to prove his point, he comes up with a plan: he creates an obstacle course in his backyard using items around the house for him and his friends to practice. Though Boris, Frederick, and Alice train hard for the big event, Frederick has hay fever to deal with, which slows him down. Finally, the day has come. It is Field Day! The three friends are primed, but so is Eddie. Unfortunately, Eddie takes the lead in each activity, and worse yet, Frederick's hay fever is acting up just in time for the round-the-track marathon. Can Boris and his friends beat Eddie? Joyner creates a clever twist to end this important day. Joyner's characters are playful and encouraging, and his storyline is replete with issues and challenges to which many children can relate. The introduction, which is an opportunity for readers to meet Boris, is a reminder of how he is very much like them: he has favorite things, a family, home, pets, and friends. A plus at the end of the book is a two-page section on how to make your own backyard obstacle course. Part of Scholastic's Branches line, this book, which is broken up into seven chapters, is certain to keep young readers engaged to the very end. Reviewer: Anita Lock
