Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Here comes the (would-be) flower girl, all dressed in pink. Alas, much to D. W.'s dismay, her older cousin Cora has been given the coveted role in Aunt Lucy's wedding. And to make matters worse, brother Arthur has the oh-so-important job of ring bearer. But the irrepressible D. W. doesn't give up easily: she hopes that Cora will get so nervous that she'll have to fill in as flower girl; and she looks to the future optimistically (``Next time you get married can I help?'' she begs her aunt). But fortune smiles upon the sibling on the sidelines, and D. W. gets to play a more critical part in the ceremony than even she had envisioned. Illustrated with Brown's typically animated, humorous drawings, D. W.'s latest escapade is as energetic and spunky as the young aardvark herself. All aspiring flower girls--a sizable audience--will certainly request return visits with this determined youngster. Ages 3-7. (Apr.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
D.W. may be young and small, but her size helps save Aunt Lucy's wedding. Put out because she has no role in Aunt Lucy's wedding, D.W. establishes a place for herself when she retrieves the wedding ring lost by her brother Arthur. The young heroine gets to march down the aisle holding the shinny gold ring. Transformed into a board book, this story loses nothing and the delightful drawings and good humor abound.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- A wonderful new D. W. adventure. Arthur is to be the ring bearer in his Aunt Lucy's wedding and his sister D. W.'s aardvark nose is out of joint because she is thought to be too little to take part in the ceremony. She must watch as cousin Cora walks down the aisle scattering flower petals and Arthur carries the ring on a special pillow. Disaster strikes when the ring drops, rolls down the aisle, and falls into a heating grate on the floor. All attempts to recover it fail, until D. W. saves the day. The soft watercolors are full of detail. Like other books about the siblings, this one is a great deal of fun. There is slightly more text here than in the previous titles, but it reads aloud well and will be a hit in story hours. Youngsters will agree with the heroine as she states, `` `I may be little, but sometimes I can be a big help!' '' A worthy purchase for any picture-book collection. --Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
Ilene Cooper
D.W., younger sister of Arthur, appears in a third story all her own. The rather glamorous setting is a wedding, but D.W. isn't pleased. Arthur is the ring bearer, cousin Cora is the flower girl, and D.W. is out in the cold. But when Arthur trips going down the aisle, and the ring falls down a heating vent, only D.W. is small enough to fish the ring out. In return, the grateful wedding party lets her walk down the aisle after all. The format is smaller than usual for Arthur books, but the appeal is just as great in this story that has a direct line to how little kids feel about being left out. Brown's softly colored, familiar artwork holds no real surprises, except one--is it possible that Arthur and kin are looking just a little less like aardvarks and more like humans than they did before?
