Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Anita Barnes Lowen
Suzanne is having a party and she has invited all the girls from her third grade class. It makes sense since it is a sleepover, and Suzanne's mom has even said the girls can put on makeup as long as they wash it off before they go to sleep. But wait! A girls-only party? A party that does not include everyone? The boys are outraged! Now they are spraying the girls with invisible cootie spray and organizing a "boys only" club. Poor Katie is torn between her two best friends, Suzanne and Jeremy. It will take a lost puppy and lots of teamwork to reconcile these boys and girls. From the "Katie Kazoo, Switcheroo" series starring Katie, who is periodically changed into another person by a magic wind. A silly story with a premise that is more than a bit unrealistic. It is highly unlikely that a group of third grade boys are going to be mad because the girls are getting together for a sleepover. Illustrated with cartoonish black-and-white drawings featuring big-eyed kids.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Another installment in a series about a third grader who is periodically transformed into someone else. When a classmate schedules a girls-only slumber party, the boys declare war, and Katie's two best friends are on opposite sides of the gender gap. So, when the "magic wind" turns her into a boy, she tries to reconcile the feuding parties, but her interference only seems to make matters worse. It takes a lost puppy and a determined team effort to bring the friends back together. The fantasy element adds a touch of humor to the familiar boy-girl conflict and the dialogue has an authentic playground ring. The drawings are reminiscent of comic-book art or those 1970s paintings of children with large eyes. Transitional readers will enjoy the humor and appreciate the satisfying triumph of friendship over gender roles.-Elaine E.

Its a fake germ thats found in girls that boys dont like. So the next time a boy is saying girls have cooties, put your hand over his mouth. It will stop him until he starts screaming he has them on him. But cooties arent real. I do the whole hand over mouth thing sometimes... :laughs: Its so funny!!!!!!!!!
