Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
If 10-year-old Matthew would stop bickering with his sister, pulling pranks on the girls in his class and fighting with his best friend, his sleepover birthday party would be a complete success. Matthew's health-nut mother is actually allowing him to have junk food, and his eight friends are going to bring great presents. What more could he want? How about a truce with the sixth-grade girls who have declared war on him? They threaten to ruin the party he has been anticipating for weeks, until Matthew finally swallows his pride. He and the girls reach an agreement, and Matthew's 11th birthday celebration turns out to be even better than he expected. Danziger once again combines insight and humor in her first book for younger readers (and her first starring a boy); her characters come alive through natural dialogue and universal experiences. Ages 8-12. (Oct.)
Children's Literature
Is there a parent who hasn't heard that phrase in the title? Matthew Martin is obsessed with his upcoming birthday. He wants his party to be perfect, and in spite of his mother's heath food obsession, his party is going to have plenty of junk food. However, life gets more complicated at home with his older sister fretting about her upcoming date for the school dance. And things don't seem to be going smoothly at school. He has a falling out with his best friend, and all the tricks he has played on the girls at school are coming back to haunt him. It is a funny and fast paced story. Matthew is a kid that everyone knows and it is a relief that all ends happily. 1998 (orig.

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-- Computer whiz Matthew Martin is eagerly planning a sleep-over party for his birthday; practical jokester Matthew Martin is steadfastly becoming the target for GET HIM (Girls Eager to Halt Immature Matthew). When the war against Matthew and the sleepover take place on the same night, Matthew finds himself having to do some quick thinking--and growing. In this book, readers meet a boy that they'll feel they already know. As they become more acquainted with him, they'll find that his practical jokes make him more and more interesting--and they'll understand why he irritates his friends. Reproductions of computer-produced invitations, lists, and letters will immediately attract young computer enthusiasts. While for younger readers than her previous books, Everyone Else's Parents Said Yes continues to reflect Danziger's awareness of what students of a certain age are like and what appeals to them. Sibling rivalry and parent/child conflicts are humorously yet realistically portrayed in this zany but basically credible story of the five days leading up to and culminating in Matthew's 11th birthday celebration. --Dona Weisman, Northeast Texas Library, Garland

    It was the greatest book!

    I like how Matthew is always teasing his sister. Matthews' family is like a normal family, Siblings always fighting, Moms and DAds trying to stop them and sending the kids to thier rooms. I have read this book 3 times!!
