Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Caseley's verbose presentation centers around two precocious first cousins, Jenny and Jessica, and their parents' unwillingness to accept their inherent talents. (Jenny loves ballet dancing and hates her art lessons, while Jessica prefers painting and loathes dancing.) The families' attempts to fit the girls into preconceived behavioral patterns, and the efforts of the grownups to make comparisons with other family members, ultimately prove more disappointing for the adults than the girls. Even though they are as different as ``night and day'' and ``chalk and cheese,'' intrinsically these high-spirited cousins are ``one of a kind'' who, regardless of their parents' opinions, wholeheartedly love what they do--and each other. Overall this is a somewhat disappointing, inconclusive book; and although Caseley's lively pictures have clever, thematic border designs, her narrative is weakened by uninteresting characterizations and repetition of meaningless details. Ages 4-up. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- Jenny and Jessica may be cousins, but their characters are as opposite as chalk and cheese--or so their families insist at first. Later the families recognize the girls' similarities and conclude that the cousins are as alike as ``two peas in a pod.'' Everyone accepts their likenesses and differences with enthusiasm, making the story a fine celebration of individuality. This is one of Caseley's perkiest books, and her recognizable style is dressed in its Sunday best. Characteristic borders of tiny details surround her bright watercolor and pencil drawings. Several faces will be familiar--the cousins look very much like Molly Pink from Caseley's book of the same name (1985) and Emma in My Sister Celia (1986, both Greenwillow). Humor, upbeat colors, and jazzy details, as well as an attractive layout, make this an appealing picture book. The jacket is as festive as a box of confetti: Jenny and Jessica step out to greet readers, and small rainbows, hearts, and other motifs twinkle from a shiny green background. --Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Regional Library, Alexandria, VA
