Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The indomitable heroine of Christina Katerina and the Box gets her way, sort of, when she and her mother divide up the house. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Barbara Roberts
This wry tale will appeal to the hearts of beleaguered siblings everywhere. When Christina Katerina feels unjustly inconvenienced by her rambunctious family, especially her pesky brother John, she divides the house into 'mine' and 'yours' quarters. Aided by a patient mother who arranges to keep familial offenders out of Christina Katerina's way, the little girl finds freedom exhilarating but lonely. A girl can only eat so many peanut butter and potato chip sandwiches alone before she wistfully announces that it would be nice if somebody, anybody, could tuck her into bed at night. When Christina Katerina's mother shares some chocolate cake from her side of the house with her rueful daughter, the resolution to Christina Katerina's problem becomes obvious. A family reunion, faulty members and all, is just the thing to make everybody happy.
