Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Magenta is anxious about an upcoming trip to the eye doctor in this entry in the "Blue's Clues" series, inspired by the Nick Jr. television show. But she feels better when her true Blue friend, and Steve, offer to accompany her. For kids who may be facing the same experience, the exam itself is demystified by a simple description of the process and a friendly, if somewhat robotic, Dr. Eyeleen. Magenta's condition seems a bit extreme—she can't focus on either faraway birds or close-up puzzle pieces—but this does drive home the point that glasses are obviously a better alternative to walking around in a perpetually blurry world. The story-line is simple and direct, with virtually no distractions before the predictable outcome. This approach doesn't make for a thrilling read, but it works for the premise—and purpose—of this book. The book relies heavily on its cachet of character recognition from the television show, but does not use the TV show's interactive style of encouraging "audience participation" by incorporating clues and asking questions that invite listeners to suggest answers. The visual design of the TV show, which creates a stimulating palate of strong shapes, bright colors and different textures, is mimicked here. 2002, Simon Spotlight/Simon & Schuster,
