Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Robby's familya father and a sisterhave moved several times, and he's resisting this latest one, even after it has happened. He and his sister Peggy worry their father will marry his new partner in the computer business, Mrs. Lowenfeld. Peggy wants her father to marry their housekeeper, and Robby copies an important computer program to give to the competitionMrs. Lowenfeld's ex-husbandhoping they'll then have to move back to their old hometown. In this light, sometimes funny book, the characters base every single action on rather incredible misconceptions. Robby's father wants to marry Mrs. Lowenfeld, but she is quietly becoming engaged to someone else; the housekeeper falls for Mr. Lowenfeld. And Robby's new friend, Beth Lowenfeld, is still trying to bring her folks back together. The motives for most of Robby's actions are well established but weak, and the boy artificially introduces memories of past events which are then repeatedby him or by othersin the present. This is bound to disappoint fans of Rabbit Ears, My Robot Buddy and other Slote gems. Ages 8-11. (April)
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8 Robbie Miller, unhappy at moving to Michigan, is also upset that meddling, finicky Mrs. Lowenfeld is trying to become their new mother. She is their dad's new business partner and is being all too chummy as far as he and his sister Peggy are concerned. They plot elaborate schemes to foil her matri monial plans and find an unexpected ally in Mrs. Lowenfeld's daughter, who is trying to get her divorced parents back together. When the Millers' new housekeeper turns out to be young, at tractive, and a good cook, the children decide that she and their father would make a perfect pair. Unfortunately, none of the adults cooperate. Slote has captured the mind of an 11 year old everything Robby does makes sense to someone that age, although maybe not to anyone else. His main characters are well drawn, and the story moves at a rapid pace. Slote has deftly combined the mixed emotions of moving with enough humor so that the story is not just another one of ``starting over.'' This book will be enjoyed by anyone who has ever moved, done a little matchmaking, or been 11 years old. Nancy P. Reeder, Heathwood Hall Episcopal School, Columbia, S.C.
