Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The Barker twins are a new team for author/illustrator DePaola. Moffat (a.k.a Moffie) is the oldest by a whole ten minutes—she has a brother named Morgan (a.k.a Morgie). In this episode, the kids are learning to write their names. After working so hard in kindergarten, Ms. Shepard tells the kids it is time for recess. Morgie wants to play hide-and-seek. But they can't decide who should be "it," or what the rules will be. Pretty soon, recess is over and no one has played the game. The same scenario with several variations continues on Tuesday and Wednesday. Since it rains on Thursday, all the kids go to the gym for recess and play duck-duck-goose. On Friday, the kids still don't have the rules worked out and so the whole fiasco carries over to the next week. Kids will chuckle—parents may be reminded of the all-too-real scenes of a typical bureaucratic workplace.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-The friendly dog twins are back. Moffie is 10 minutes older than Morgie and likes to control every situation. After Mama talks to her about being too bossy, Moffie decides to let her brother be Boss for a Day. Since he is unaccustomed to taking charge, she shows him how, making every decision about what they should wear, eat, and play. In Hide-and-Seek, the siblings and their friends want to play hide-and-seek during recess. However, it takes them all week long to decide on the rules. Clever details include the bulletin board that changes daily and the reoccurring illustrated recess bell with the hand-lettered "RING!" that visually mimics the sound. The charming illustrations done in cheerful colors and with expressive characters complement both texts. Beginning readers will love these entertaining additions.-Debbie Stewart, Grand Rapids Public Library, MI Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
