Overview

Herbie Jones and Raymond Martin haven’t been friends for long, but they already know they can count on each other in a pinch. When the class promises not to laugh when they make a mistake or do something silly, the boys are certain they can keep it. But when their teacher says that everyone can wear slippers in class, Raymond gets worried. He doesn’t have any to bring. There is an extra pair in Herbie’s house, but there is a small problem—they are his sister’s.



Of course Herbie comes up with a plan to save the day. And when the buddies walk into class each wearing one girl’s slipper and one boy’s, no one laughs.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Herbie is a truly likeable second grader who is also a good friend, as this story proves. Mr. Schnellenberger has announced that kids may wear slippers while in his class—they all love it except Ray, Herbie's friend. Herbie eventually learns that Ray does not have a pair of slippers, but leave it to our second grader to come up with a creative and thoughtful solution. He tells his grandfather, who he often talks to long distance, about school and the slipper episode. Grandpa offers the ultimate compliment when he hears what Herbie did and tells his grandson that he wishes he was in second grade again so he could have Herbie as his buddy. This is a really positive story about friendship which should appeal to new readers. There are plenty of black-and-white illustrations to break up the text to provide context clues.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-In this easy chapter book, Mr. S announces that beginning the following day, the children will wear slippers in class. This sounds like fun to most of them, but not to the new kid, Roy, who doesn't own any. Herbie solves the problem by sharing his slippers and his sister's old ones-purple mules with tiny flowers-with Roy; each boy wears one slipper from each pair. There's a valuable lesson here about not laughing at others. The adults (all male) are depicted as sympathetic and cool, and the dialogue rings true. But wouldn't a savvy teacher be prepared for a circumstance like Roy's? Better humorous books for this audience include Barbara Park's "Junie B. Jones" series (Random), Cynthia Rylant's "Henry and Mudge" titles (S & S), and Kline's own "Horrible Harry" books (Viking). Sorry, Herbie, this one doesn't make the grade.-Kate Kohlbeck, Randall School, Waukesha, WI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Suzy and Rufus have been married for thirty-eight years. They met in the state where they both grew up: California. Suzy grew up in Berkeley and Rufus in Sacramento. Suzy graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in European history. She met Rufus at the Davis campus while attending that campus for a year. They got married and lived in different places, including Canada, before settling into Connecticut, the state they now call home.


Suzy taught in 5th and 6th grades at Shannon Elementary School in Richmond, California for 3 years, and 2nd and 3rd grades at Southwest Elementary School in Torrington, Connecticut for 24 years before retiring this past June. She now enjoys writing full-time and visiting schools and libraries. The couple share their home with two cats, Teeter and Hoag. They have two daughters, Jennifer and Emily, and four grandchildren: Jake, Kenna, Gabby and Saylor. A fifth grandchild is due in September, 2006. Suzy's mother just turned 96. She dedicated her most recent book, Horrible Harry Takes the Cake to her.


Suzy and Rufus enjoy attending UConn football and basketball games, and Suzy uses the UConn library as a reference for her writing facts.

    Includes a character who stutters

    My son stutters and he loved that this book contained a character with a similar challenge. It wasn't preachy or overt, but just the right amount to get my son's interest and, at the same time, make him feel okay with who he is.
