Mine!

Overview


Poor Isabel! It’s hard to play with Claudia because Claudia simply will not share any of her toys: not the rocking horse, not the carrot-topped doll, not the shiny new tricycle. All Claudia can do is shriek “Mine!” Even a trip to the park, meant to soothe tempers, backfires, but in the end, it's Isabel who has the last laugh.

This witty, droll tale provides the perfect opportunity for parents and young ...

This witty, droll tale provides the perfect opportunity for parents and young children to discuss friendship and sharing. Charming illustrations by the acclaimed Mary Rees add to the fun.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Learning to share is often difficult for children, as is painfully highlighted in this slight picture book. Isabel arrives at Claudia's house for a play date, only to find that her iron-willed friend is not keen on sharing her toys. Attempts by Isabel to ride a rocking horse or hold a ``carrot top doll'' result in Claudia's screaming ``Mine!'' Finally, in a rather heated scuffle over a tricycle, Claudia literally pushes too far and the wildly rolling trike ends up as a pile of scrap. Oram's matter-of-fact tone does little to soften this gratingly unpleasant story. The epitome of a bratty toddler, Claudia is a mean-spirited child who repeatedly fails to be gracious even after her mother's amiable coaxing. Rees's chipper watercolors exude frivolity aplenty, but Claudia's consistent sourpuss expression ultimately casts a gray cloud over the proceedings. Ages 2-5. (Mar.)
Children's Literature
This story about selfishness and playing with friends ends with a refreshingly amusing twist that does not offer a moral. Little Claudia (who is probably terribly two) screams "Mine!" every time her friend Isabel, who is playing at Claudia's house, tries to play with one of Claudia's toys. In an effort to end the bickering, Claudia's mother takes the girls to the park to ride Claudia's new tricycle. When Isabel tries to ride the bike, Claudia pulls Isabel off and the bike goes flying down a hill and through the park. The bike has quite the ride, ending up in pieces everywhere. Claudia proclaims that the bike is now Isabel's as she says, "Yours." The tone is fun and funny, and the whimsical watercolor illustrations are full of busy backgrounds that add atmosphere and will amuse kids as they search for the family pets on each page. 2006 (orig. 1992), Frances Lincoln, Ages 5 to 9.
