Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Twins Jazz and Koo are staying with their grandparents while their parents are abroad. They spend weekdays with Grandpa Putter and weekends with Granny Hoe. But every time the two grandparents meet, sparks fly and they quarrel endlessly, with the twins caught helplessly in the middle. Though Grandpa and Granny never really resolve their differences, they do agree on one issue: they will do anything for their grandchildren, even if it means trying to get along. The constant clashes between these two eccentric and endearing seniors result in a light-hearted, amusing story. In this debut book, Fakih creates a comical comparison by equating the gentle banter of the two stubborn grandparents with the typical childish bickering between the twins. Whimsical dialogue and offbeat characterization highlight the good-natured tomfoolery. Ages 7-10. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
Gr 3-4-- Koo and Jazz are thrilled to be left in the care of their favorite people while their parents travel on business. Their Grandpa Putter, a rich businessman, gives these twins every comfort during the week while Granny Hoe, a scrappy hardware store owner, shares a more down-to-earth life with them on weekends. The book is divided into ten vignettes describing the children's experiences; they are tied together by the argumentative, but increasingly affectionate relationship that grows between the grandparents. Fakih offers a refreshing and often humorous child's-eye view of the world in language that makes liberal use of imagery and onomatopoeia. At times, the humor is at the expense of the grandparents , whose bickering calls for Koo and Jazz to act as peacemakers. In fact, most of the adult characters are eccentric and/or juvenile, and all benefit from the assistance of the twins, which youngsters should find most gratifying. Pearson's charming and distinctive black-and-white sketches highlight events in each of the chapters and further enhance the book's appeal for young readers. A promising first effort. --Maggie McEwen, formerly at Coffin Elem . School, Brunswick, ME
