Overview

Beautiful earrings.

Glorious earrings.


What's a young girl supposed to do when her mom and dad refuse to let her have her ears pierced? She can argue, she can beg, she can swear that-if only they'll say yes -- she'll be nice to her little brother for one whole year. And whether or not she persuades them, she can find herself in this true and funny tail of a charmingly persistent girl determined to have what she wants and needs and loves: beautiful, glorious earrings for pierced ears.

A young girl uses various arguments to convince her parents to let her have her ears pierced.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Pierced ears are often a hot topic with girls: who has pierced ears, which girls have mothers who won't let them get their ears pierced, who gets to wear dangle earrings and when, are some of the burning questions haunting this picture book's characters. The curly-haired protagonist pleads, cajoles and bargains to get pierced ears; she points out that she is the only girl in ``her class, the world or the solar system'' without them. She promises to walk the dog, clean her room, read a book a week for a year and be nice to her little brother if she is only granted her wish. Viorst's tongue-in-cheek style is appropriate to her subject, and she neatly sidesteps the permission issue by ending her farcical tale with the obsessed girl poring over her growing earring collection. Anyone who feels the subject matter is superficial or an example of deteriorating values has forgotten the flaps over miniskirts and Nehru jackets. Ages 6-10. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- Pierced ears and beautiful earrings are this protagonist's sole desire. She tries everything to convince her parents of the positive results of such acquisitions: her posture will improve and she won't need new clothes. If arguments won't work, there are always tears or promises. The outcome of such exhortations is not known because the situation remains unresolved, but one can count on the persistence of this child. Although not Viorst at her best, she does capture the immediacy of young demands. The girl must have her earrings now, because she is the ``only girl . . . in the solar system'' (not to mention in her multiethnic classroom) who doesn't have pierced ears. Malone's watercolor and ink illustrations depict a curly-haired redhead straining to look in jewelry store windows, imagining herself in various earrings, poring over pictures of sophisticated models, and being very helpful. Her comfortably baggy outfits are accented by her signature hairbow in dazzling colors, but her age seems to fluctuate greatly from page to page. The conflict is authentic, and the humorous illustrations expand the drama and exaggeration of this child's obsession. Parents and youngsters caught in this struggle will recognize themselves, although they won't find any answers in this book. --Jane Saliers, Atlanta-Fulton Pub . Lib .
