Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With their zest for life and kind regard for one another, the endearing Mr. and Mrs. Green are sure to acquire more and more fans among newly independent readers." - School Library Journal

Who wants to spend the day with a couple of grownup, married alligators? Answer: Every kid you know . . . [More Mr. and Mrs. Green] sparkles with humor."—The Bulletin

Publishers Weekly
Keith Baker's reptile couple returns for More Mr. and Mrs. Green, formatted as a beginning reader. Like its predecessor, their lives unfold in a three-chapter format, including Mrs. Green's less-than-lucky day fishing, her latest avant-garde portrait of Mr. Green and an eventful day at the park. Baker's illustrations bring verdant vivacity to the duo's rich lives. Also Meet Mr. and Mrs. Green has been reformatted as a beginning reader in both hardcover and paperback. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This addition to the “Adventures with Mr. and Mrs. Green” series contains three stories. The adventures are low key, drawing kids into the safe and happy lives of a nice couple of very green alligators. In the first story, the Greens go fishing. Mrs. Green is dismayed by her lack of luck until Mr. Green, who has been catching many fish, tells her his secret. He uses jelly beans as bait. In the second (and most original) story, Mrs. Green paints a portrait of Mr. Green. When she is done, she hangs it on the wall. It is placed amidst many paintings of her husband, done in various modes. The third story finds the Greens enjoying a trip to the park. They each partake of different activities until the sound of an ice cream truck attracts them both. The stories are written for young readers. While the book has the look of a read-alone book, a little help may be needed with some of the words. Simple number usage also makes the book appropriate for young students.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-The affable alligators who made their debut in Meet Mr. and Mrs. Green (Harcourt, 2002) are back with three brand-new adventures. On a fishing trip, Mrs. Green is discouraged because she isn't catching anything, until she learns that her husband has a secret bait-jellybeans. Next, Mr. Green is proud to be the model for his wife's Picasso-like portrait. Finally, a park proves to be the perfect place for both of them; after an enjoyable day, they decide that spaghetti with mashed potatoes makes a perfect follow-up to an ice-cream snack. Baker's palette features many bright colors, but the vibrant, green alligators take center stage on every page. Simple number concepts and translations of French words are seamlessly woven into the story. This easy-reader with a more sophisticated, chapter-book appearance will appeal to children familiar with Barbara Baker's "Digby and Kate" books (Dutton) and Denys Cazet's "Minnie and Moo" series (HarperCollins). With their zest for life and kind regard for one another, the endearing Mr. and Mrs. Green are sure to acquire more and more fans among newly independent readers.-Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The big-hearted alligators introduced in Meet Mr. and Mrs. Green (2002, but reformatted as an easy reader, too) return for three more feel-good episodes. Mr. Green catches fish after fish, leaving Mrs. Green "frustrated and fishless" until he shares his secret bait: jellybeans. He then gladly sits for a portrait that turns out decidedly cubist, and loses a race to the ice-cream truck when Mrs. Green cannily takes a shortcut. Identical, save for necktie and pearls in Baker's bright green and yellow illustrations, the two have different but wonderfully compatible personalities; their relationship may not have the fizz of George and Martha's, but they manage to express mutual affection without getting soppy about it. (Easy reader. 6-8)
