Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-- When Erik asks his mother why he doesn't have a father, she tells him that he went away because he wasn't ready for the responsibility of caring for a baby. During her explanation, she reinforces that she'd wanted Erik very much. She also tells him that she and Erik's daddy were young and not ready for marriage. Dialogue is stilted, and plot developments are so forced that they can only be viewed as instructional contrivances. In fact, the story itself seems instructive; its energy does not flow directly to the child. The characters, drawn in pencil, look deformed. Their elongated bodies, dilated pupils, and odd-shaped faces contribute a strange feeling, and may communicate anxiety rather than reassurance. Following this story, a 13-page ``Special Section for Single Parents'' offers advice on explaining the situation to children as well as on psychological and legal issues. It is written clearly and directly, offering practical suggestions that are easily extracted and understood. Unfortunately, its location implies that it is secondary, and it casts too clinical a light on the story. --Liza Bliss, Leominster Public Library, MA
