Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy M. Smith-D'Arezzo
In this third iteration of Roscoe Riley tales, Roscoe discovers that some things are precious, whether it is a handmade sweater or a goofy dog. Roscoe wants more than anything else to win a trophy like his younger sister, the super achiever. He even tries trading his grandmother-made, personalized sweater for the use of a new friend's dog. Edward, the dog, has been taught a great trick; when a picture book is set before him, he appears to be reading it. Roscoe thinks this trick will win him a trophy at the Truly Terrific Trick Contest. Of course, Roscoe learns the value of his possessions and must make amends in the end. Told in simple language with black and white line drawings, the text is engaging enough to catch the interest of those in-between readers who are not entirely ready for chapter books. While not quite the caliber of the "Junie B. Jones" series, this does have the advantage of being told with correct grammar. Reviewer: Wendy M. Smith-D'Arezzo

Meet the Author

Katherine Applegate's many books include the Roscoe Riley Rules chapter book series, the picture book The Buffalo Storm, and the award-winning novel Home of the Brave. With her husband, Michael Grant, she wrote the hugely popular series Animorphs, which has sold more than 35 million copies worldwide.

Katherine was inspired to write The One and Only Ivan after reading about the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan, the Shopping Mall Gorilla. The real Ivan lived alone in a tiny cage for twenty-seven years in a Washington State shopping mall before being moved to Zoo Atlanta after a public outcry. He was a beloved celebrity at the zoo, which houses the nation's largest collection of western lowland gorillas. Ivan was well-known for his paintings, which he "signed" with a thumbprint.

Katherine lives in California with her husband and two children.

Everything Goes is a series of books written and illustrated by Brian Biggs. The first books in the series, Everything Goes: On Land and Everything Goes: In the Air, are a celebration of cars, trucks, motorcycles, planes, and other things that go!

Roscoe Riley Rules #3: Don't Swap Your Sweater for a Dog

Chapter One

Welcome to Time-Out

Hey! Want to play?

Oops. I mean, want to play when I'm done with time-out?

I sort of kind of got in some trouble again.

'Cause I sort of kind of borrowed somebody's dog.

I only borrowed him so I could win a trophy.

A shiny, sparkly, silver trophy.

You've probably borrowed a dog before, right?

A cat? A gerbil? A tarantula?

Oh. Well, I had my reasons.

It's a long story, actually.

Usually when I end up in time-out, there's a long story to tell.

And since you're here anyway, I'll bet you'd like to hear it. . . .

    My son loved this book

    After purchasing the first book in the series at the school book fair I searched everywhere for the series. I found only some of the books. Barnes and Noble was able to order the other books and have them to us within a week. My son actually asked to keep going every time he finished a chapter. He laughed and smiled the whole time.
