Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Janell, a young African-American girl, lives in a happy home with loving parents, but has no friends her own age. Much to her mother's consternation, she invents Nessie, a mischievous child who shares her secrets and makes her laugh at all the wrong times. The situation begins to get out of hand when crotchety Aunt Bea arrives for a visit, but is resolved when Janell goes to school for the first time and makes friends with the children in her class. This thirtieth anniversary edition Me & Nessie, remains fresh and charming. It has been updated with colorful new illustrations that will appeal to its target audience of preschool to third grade. 2005 (orig. 1975), HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 4 to 8.
