Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Mickey and Longjohn had been friends for as long as they could remember. They loved doing all kinds of activities, especially running. Mickey was short and sturdy and quick. Longjohn was tall and thin and speedy. When Field Day arrived, they were delighted to be assigned to the same team. When Longjohn dropped the egg in the Egg and Spoon Race, Mickey made a joke. When Mickey lost the napkin in the Waiter and Waitress Race, Longjohn made a joke. The Shoe Race was the finale and would determine the winning team. Mickey got so excited he forgot to tie his shoe. It fell off as he was running. Mickey came in last. He was embarrassed and unhappy. He didn't eat any of the watermelon and went straight to his room when he got home. Jenna (Mickey's sister) and Longjohn let Mickey know he was still tops in their eyes and the story ends happily. The colorful, cartoon-like pictures illustrate a loving family and a diverse group of young students. They contribute to the joyful tone of the book. 2000, Greenwillow Books, Ages 5 to 8, $15.95.

K-Gr 2-Neighbors and best friends, Mickey and Longjohn enjoy sharing many activities, especially foot races. Their friendship is temporarily threatened when a loose shoestring causes Mickey's shoe to fall off on "field day" and his friend wins the race. The boy's failure rankles, especially when the other kids laugh at him, and he retreats into sulky solitude. Then Mickey's sister comes up with a way to soothe his hurt pride and mend the boys' friendship. Caseley's text is as straightforward as her story. Most of the dialogue consists of simple declarative sentences. The narrative offers more variety but retains the streamlined style. As always, the artist's brightly colored illustrations, rendered in watercolors, colored pencils, and black pen, have a childlike charm. Although simply drawn and somewhat flat looking, the characters are expressive and appealing. There's enough variation in page layout to keep the book moving smoothly, as well as interesting details like Longjohn's birth certificate (the source of his nickname-his long feet and body at birth) and a framed photo of the two friends. Readers will relate to the trials and tribulations caused by (even friendly) competition, and sisters everywhere will appreciate Jenna's thoughtful, clever contributions.-Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Kirkus Reviews
paper: 0-068-16762-4 Caseley (Mickey's Class Play, not reviewed, etc.) continues the (mis)adventures of Mickey, in a poignant tale about winning and losing. Best friends Mickey and Longjohn are inseparable. Despite their physical differences, they are well-matched during races. "Mickey was short and sturdy and quick. Longjohn was tall and thin and speedy." When Field Day arrives, they are ecstatic to be on the same team together. Caseley captures all the excitement of these elementary school Olympics; the thrills and spills, covering classic events such as egg-and-spoon, crab walk, and the hallowed 50-yard dash. Through each event, the friends are unerringly supportive of each other, lightly brushing aside any mishaps. An untied shoelace, however, proves to be Mickey's undoing during the dash. When Longjohn wins the coveted medal, Mickey suffers the pangs of loss. A homemade medal saluting him as a "First Place Brother" and friend from his sister and Longjohn helps Mickey refocus on the important things. While the tale doesn't exactly portray an inspiring message about losing gracefully, Caseley addresses a prickly issue with honesty—sometimes you lose and feel bad about it. It's this truthfulness that will appeal to readers, who can commiserate with Mickey. The brightly colored illustrations feature a multicultural collection of children, all eagerly participating in the events. Caseley's vivid drawings highlight the suspenseful action and humor of the text. Despite his setback, Mickey learns a vital lesson about winning, losing, and the true value of friends.
