Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Poor Miss Bramble has her hands full with her 13 pupils, who climb bookshelves, threaten one another with giant rubber spiders and pick their noses. So the teacher sighs with relief when the well-behaved, tiara-wearing Princess Priscilla joins Class 7. To reward Priscilla's uncommon (you might say otherworldly) politeness, Miss Bramble takes the class on a series of field trips-but on each outing, Priscilla delicately protests, ``I've done this before, Miss.'' The British author-artist team tantalizingly increases the silliness quotient as Miss Bramble tries to astonish the princess: Class 7 visits the Arctic, the jungle, the pyramids and Mars, where the real monster of Class 7 steps forward at last. Although the kids are rendered in a conventional watercolor-and-ink cartoon style, the spreads are filled with eye-catching activity, thanks to the exotic locations and student high jinks. If Goulding's pink Martians are awfully fuzzy and cute, at least they're sufficiently alien. This story's ironic treatment of Miss Bramble will amuse adults, while its unpredictable plot should attract younger readers. Ages 3-up. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS-K-An unattractive and poorly written story. Princess Priscilla is a new student in a class of terribly behaved children, and Miss Bramble tries everything she can think of to make her happy. The class travels to the beach, the Arctic, the jungle, and Priscilla repeats that she's already been there, done that. After landing on Mars, Priscilla states that she's done THAT, too, and steps out of her disguise to reveal herself to be an alien. Gasp. This is a plodding, boring tale, illustrated with bug-eyed characters who are drawn so stiffly that, combined with the stilted text, will cause young readers to close the book well before the class lands on Mars. Miss Bramble has nothing on the Frizz in the ``Magic School Bus'' series (Scholastic), and the monsters of Class 7 wouldn't scare anybody. Unless they threatened to appear in a sequel.-Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, NY
