Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Tony Ross is as inventive as ever. The funniest book."  —Bookseller

"Tony Ross has excelled once again in this extremely witty, outrageous tale."  —Child Education

"Ross brings his signature wit. . . . Expressive characters and playful flourishes abound."  —Publishers Weekly on Three Little Kittens and Other Favorite Nursery Rhymes

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-- Sooner or later there had to be a book about someone who picks her nose. Super Dooper Jezebel (Farrar, 1988) never would, according to Ross; but Nellie does in the Christmas play at school, and when admonished says, ``It won't come out . . . It's stuck .'' So everyone tries to extract the finger from the nose, in ever greater elaboration, until small brother Henry, who's been offering his services for many pages, tickles her and the problem is resolved. Wacky, watercolor cartoons embellish the text. It is remotely possible that some people will laugh at this silly story, but most will harken to the title when considering purchase. --Carolyn Jenks, formerly at Oyster River Elementary School, Durham, NH
