Editorial Reviews

Stephanie Zvirin
Here Duffey focuses on two typical kid concerns--the yearning to be somebody special and problems with a school bully. Robbie York desperately wants to be "cool" at school this year. Unfortunately, he doesn't have a chance: his mother takes his picture at the bus stop; he has a sissy-looking ruler; and, unlike most of the rest of the kids in third grade, he is not wearing blue jeans. When he loses his footing on the bus and accidentally lands in the lap of the class bully, his yearning to be cool is quickly transformed into a wish to get through the day without being harassed. Once at home, he alerts his mother to the fact that she is embarrassing him (no more kissing or picture-taking in front of other kids, please); it is much tougher, however, to get on the good side of his third-grade bete noire. The story ends abruptly with Robbie managing to win over "the enemy" with a mite too much aplomb. More realistic are Duffey's genuine, good-humored glimpses at the embarrassments of being young. Another Duffey chapter book follows.
