Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Buscaglia stresses the importance of keeping memories alive in his new book, which is based on a true story. But it seems derived from the overused plot about the misunderstood ``witch,'' who is finally perceived as a nice lady; in this book, her name is Mrs. Sunday. To Tino, eight, and his pals, the old lady is a ``vampire,'' living by herself in a rickety house and hoping to snare little children. But Tino and Mrs. Sunday become friends, sharing experiences along with milk and cookies after school. The narrative's conflict arises when the boy gives Mrs. Sunday his family's TV set ``to make her unlonely.'' When his parents learn of Tino's generosity, they're not at all pleased, but Buscaglia resolves the problem handily. Unlike stories that entertain and educate, this story is virtually all message, not enlivened by Newsom's color pictures. Although she is adept at portraying objects, her people appear lifeless and blank-faced. But, despite these problems, the bookgiven the author's popularitywill meet with almost certain success. All ages. (April)
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6 Buscaglia utilizes the threads of a Kahlil Gilbran quotation (``You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give'') to fashion a heartwarming story. It concerns the unlikely friendship between eight-year-old Tino and elderly, lonely Gladys Sunday, who is sustained chiefly by her memories. Their friendship enriches them both and provides a lesson about love and the joy of giving. Buscaglia's story captures the wisdom and truth of Gilbran's message. The language is as simple and straightforward as the plot line. Young readers can surely discover the story on their own, but it would be best shared. Jerry D. Flack, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs
