Overview

Surprise-Molly's in trouble again! Molly Zander and her best friend Morty get more surprises than they bargained for on their "surprise" class trip to the town's brand-new ice rink. Everyone tries to guess the secret destination, but when they get to the rink, Molly finds out she's not the only star athlete around anymore-she has some real competition in Florence, a talented figure skater. Though Molly risks her friendship with Morty by trying to be number one, in the end she decides that some things are more important than being the best.

In a review for Molly's in a Mess, Publishers Weekly said, "[Suzy Kline] exhibits her usual flair for elementary school antics...Bluthenthal's cartoonish illustrations focus on the humor and keep things frolicsome."

Third grader Molly is jealous of Florence's superior ice skating ability but makes an interesting discovery about teamwork when she joins the hockey team.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Life is fine for third-grader Molly Zander. She has managed to come out on top in every playground game and sport since Kindergarten. Her loyal friend, Morty, either cheers her on or tolerates her overly competitive spirit. But all is about to change during a surprise field trip. The bus pulls up to a brand new skating rink owned by the mother of Florence, a quiet classmate. Suddenly Florence whips out red skates and reveals that she is a prizewinning figure skater. Even loyal Morty can't help but admire Florence. Molly must struggle with jealousy as well as the realization that she isn't top athlete any more. This short chapter book is Kline's second about Molly and sidekick, Morty. While Molly's issues aren't world-shaking to an adult, they are to the two pals. Hooray for Kline, who captures the angst of a third-grader who wants to be best at something, even if it is just best friend. How Molly, Morty, Florence and the rest of the class reestablish their equilibrium makes for lively reading, especially with Bluthenthal's winsome, funny illustrations. 2001, G.P. Putnam & Sons/Penguin Books for Young Readers, $14.99. Ages 6 to 10. Reviewer: Judy Crowder
School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-Third-graders Molly and Morty have promised to be "friends for life." Trouble is, Molly's nasty temper and competitiveness often test their relationship. When Morty's ankle is broken in a jealousy-inspired ice-skating race with Molly, he wonders if they'll ever be friends again. Plenty of children will see themselves in long-suffering Morty. He knows that his friend is a poor sport and he's frank in telling her so. Yet he finds it in himself to root for her on the hockey rink even when he's sidelined. Kline presents some basic issues about friendship and sportsmanship in this formulaic beginning chapter book. Bluthenthal's full-page and spot-art cartoons reflect Kline's light touch, but don't be fooled by cover art that seems to promise a hockey showdown. The real action here is off the rink.-Pat Leach, Lincoln City Libraries, NE Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
