Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Yet another installment in the adventures of kindly Principal Tanen and his extensive neckwear collection. It's Career Day at Lynnhurst School and the students swap places with the adults. After being assigned a job, each youngster is given an appropriate tie. A surprise visit from a representative from the Education Department in Washington, D.C., who is looking to give the school a big award adds plot tension. For some reason, Mrs. Harding is not told and does not figure out that the kids and grown-ups have exchanged roles until it is almost too late. The cartoon illustrations are cheerful, with ties flowing throughout most pages to create a humorous current that moves this slight story along. Children will enjoy discovering each crazy design more than the tale itself. How can readers not smile at a tie with sports equipment, or one with telephones, push pins, paper clips, and phone messages? Although the illustrations are charming, the plot is predictable and tired. An additional purchase.-Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Third time's not the charm for the Principal with the world-class cravat collection. Mr. Tanen may own 998 "wild and crazy" ties, but on Career Day, he goes for the unbuttoned-collar look, as students and faculty switch roles-just before a Federal Official pays an unscheduled call. Accompanied by a comically dismayed Superintendent, the inscrutable, neatly coifed Mrs. Harding takes notes as she sees children washing windows, serving tuna-and-peanut-butter tacos for lunch, leading classes and finally, welcoming her into the tie-strewn Principal's office. But not to worry: given a note excusing him from Gym, Mr. Tanen hurries in to explain it all, and Mrs. Harding declares Lynnhurst School the winner of a national award. Gaily colored neckties flutter through a set of splashy watercolor school scenes, but can't rescue the sketchy, predictable plot. Still, aside from the episode's two predecessors and the likes of Stephanie Calmenson's Principal's New Clothes (1991), principals rarely get good press-and the students here do respond to the mini-crisis with calm common sense.
