Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lois Rubin Gross
Thanksgiving is coming and Katie Carew is excited about a trip to a Pilgrim village with her class, and a trip to visit her cousin in New York City. Right on schedule, Katie's personal "ill wind" blows through, sending her on two separate adventures dealing with Thanksgiving traditions. While at Morrow Village, Katie changes places with a pilgrim reenactor and gets the woman fired by acting like a contemporary fourth grader in Pilgrim's clothing. Once Katie changes back, she and her classmates set about getting the woman rehired by proving to management how helpful she has been to visitors. Then Katie goes off to the Big Apple where her cousin Emily's friend, Sarah, is boasting about being a clown in the Macy's parade. Fans of Katie will know that another switcheroo is coming, and Katie ends up in Sarah's clown costume and red wig with no knowledge of the acrobatic routines that Sarah has practiced. When Katie is herself again, she convinces the press that Sarah heroically saved her from being lost in Central Park and makes the confused girl a fifteen-minute celebrity. It's all good fun mixed with some fast facts about how Pilgrims and Native Americans lived in the sixteenth century. Kids who regularly watch the Macy's parade will enjoy learning how many handlers are needed to steer a giant balloon, and how participants in the parade are selected. It's light, it's fun, and it's great practice for chapter book readers. The humor and interplay of Katie and her friends makes this a good, quick read-aloud for adults to share with children, as well. "Katie Kazoo Switcheroo" series. Reviewer: Lois Rubin Gross
