Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Riddle's first book for children is a winsome ``What if?'' tale in which a boy exhibits an active--and far-reaching--imagination. When Eugene kicks his ball, readers know what happens until the story's end but, before that, they see where it ``could have gone.'' Gently humorous, light-hued watercolors show the runaway ball crashing through the McBeavers' front window, leaving chaos in its wake before landing in a bowl of oatmeal--and mercilessly splattering poor Mrs. McBeaver. Eugene envisions getting into so much trouble that he is forced to leave home and to take refuge in a variety of exotic places: on ``a ship bound for South America,'' on a Himalayan mountaintop, in a Greek monastery, in a gangsters' hideout. Presented with a droll display of hyperbole, Eugene's fanciful flight is perfect fodder for active imaginations. Ages 3-6. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-- ``When Eugene kicked the ball hard . . . it could have'' caused all sorts of chaotic, unlikely happenings, making it necessary for him to go into hiding with gangsters or join a Greek monastery--but it didn't, because his dog caught the ball. This tale is in the same vein as Numeroff's If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (Harper, 1985) and Quackenbush's No Mouse for Me (Watts, 1981; o.p.), but the happenings and results are too far-fetched for it to be a success. Instead of building logically from one thing to another, the story flits from here to there with no semi-realistic sequencing to delight young readers with the thought that it could happen . . . . The pen and watercolor illustrations are amusingly drawn, with small details that are humorous and amplify the text somewhat; however, they don't lend enough interest to help readers suspend their disbelief through this chain of improbabilities. --JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Public Library, CA
