Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Mallory McDonald, age 8U plus one month, returns. She is angry because her brother gets a dog, taking all the attention away from her and her cat, Cheeseburger, and she tries everything to regain her spot in the limelight. The relationships with old friend Mary Ann and new friend Joey are somewhat tested, but the focus is on Mallory and Max. When she is responsible for the puppy running away, she comes to realize that Champ is okay and that it's her own selfishness that is causing the problem. Schmitz's expressive cartoon illustrations and the large typeface make the book appealing to beginning chapter-book readers. For fans of Barbara Park's "Junie B. Jones" series (Random) and Megan McDonald's "Judy Moody" books (Candlewick), this selection is right on target.-Sharon R. Pearce, Chippewa Elementary School, Bensenville, IL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Punctuated by pointed family discussions on attitude correction and the importance of team play, this unsubtle sibling-tiff tale should please fans of Junie B. Jones and similar whiny fare. In a mix of wordy first-person narrative and recapitulative letters to now-distant friend Mary Ann, going-on-nine Mallory details why she has her shorts in a twist over big brother Max's new puppy Champ-her reasons centering around a loss of parental attention to her and her cat Cheeseburger. Max is no paragon of patience himself, but both (of course) ultimately come around, and Mallory even closes with a recipe for dog biscuits, plus a glimpse of the new pet scrapbook she's making. Printed in widely spaced lines of type and illustrated with plenty of black-and-white wash cartoons, Mallory's diatribe (her third so far) should draw, if not excite, fledgling chapter-book readers. (Fiction. 8-10)
