K-Gr 2-- Everyone in town knows Marge. Owner, manager, and fill-in cook, she is a friend to all who come to eat and chat a bit at her homey diner. Her customers, who range from the after-school gang to construction workers, savor everything from ``Kitchen-sink sundaes'' to ``the best french fries in town''--and all within the confines of warm and friendly surroundings. Open 24 hours a day, the diner is a beehive of activity, and a place young readers will enjoy from the very first page. The watercolor illustrations, done in cartoon style, lend zest to a smooth, lively storyline. Happy emotion is integrated with the text through the use of facial expressions and bright, cheerful colors. Ethnic groups are well represented, giving the diner a universal flavor. Each page is bordered with the hint of a checkered tablecloth, which enhances the book's total coziness. A delightful, charming presentation of how a hometown diner operates. --Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, OH
