Editorial Reviews

CM Magazine
"Illustrations by Dave Whamond, on the cover and with one in each chapter, add entertainment and understanding to this story. Brouwer's story gives young readers access to environmental language and issues like the walking school bus, recycling, reusing and the reasons why so many people are resistant to such ideas. Recommended."
Kirkus Reviews
Justine, an environmentally focused grade schooler, is back for another easy-to-read outing (Justine McKeen: Queen of Green, 2011). Known as the Queen of Green, Justine turns her attention here to exhaust fumes, wishing that what poured out of cars always looked filthy so more people would notice it. She gets the idea to arrange walking school buses: Groups of children shepherded to school en masse. Parent chaperones would collect children at their homes, follow a regular route each day and deliver them safely--without air pollution--to school, all on foot. Justine canvases her neighborhood looking for help from mostly unwilling adults, all of whom discouragingly regard her as a bit strange. The same cast of characters from the last outing reappear--bullying Blatzo and best friends Michael and Safdar--but, if anything, are even less well developed than in their previous cardboard appearances. Mild humor will elicit some chuckles, as when Justine encourages the janitor, frustrated because girls are kissing the mirrors with lipstick, to convince them that he cleans restrooms with water from the toilets. Playful black-and-white illustrations accompany the text. Notes for students provide advice on easy environmentally friendly activities. Amusing, with a mild bathroom humor flavor (including a fart noise machine) that's sure to appeal, the book's environmental message makes it a somewhat useful purchase. (Fiction. 6-9)

Read an Excerpt

"Did you know, if nine kids walk to school all year instead of going in cars or buses, it stops over a ton of carbon dioxide from going into the air? It also saves gas. The less gas we use, the less we have to drill for oil. And that's good too. Plus, walking is healthier for kids."

    "Let me guess," Safdar said. "You have a plan. Again."

    "Of course I do," Justine said. "I am the Queen of Green."
