Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Willy, Grace, and Tom are very rambunctious kids who have the greatest mom. Sometimes their mom gets mad because of the trouble Willy, Grace, and Tom cause but she never yells. Instead she asks questions like, "What am I going to do with you?" One Mother's Day, Willy, Grace, and Tom decide to do some nice things for their mom. They paint their bedrooms, wash the dog with mom's shampoo, make chocolate chip cookies, and decorate the house with glitter. When mom wakes up to the mess she snaps and literally hits the roof. This is one of the books in the "Graphic Sparks" series, written for struggling and reluctant readers. The writing and graphics are arranged like a comic strip. A lot of the story is told through the pictures. The end of the book includes a glossary, fun facts about chocolate chips, discussion questions, writing prompts, and an Internet link. I did not like this book because the characters do not change or grow from the events, the pages are very busy, and the children are obnoxious. Nevertheless, I know many students who would love this book for those exact reasons. I really like the resource pages at the back of the book. This book could be used to teach about sibling relationships, idioms, and cause and effect. 2006, Stone Arch Books, and Ages 8 to 12.
