Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leila Toledo
The animal residents of Mud Flats have fun playing jokes on each other on April Fool's day. Dorothy tries Newt's trick on Mr. Mullens but it takes a humorous turn. A tree sings "Take Me Out To the Ball Game" but it doesn't fool Doris. Matt and Zack receive an invitation to a party from Mrs. Beekley, but is it just another April Fool's joke? Well, they almost get left out because they think it is a joke. All of these separate events create a joyful, humorous experience.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2Squirting flowers? Flying dollar bills? Singing trees? It's April Fool's Day in Mud Flat, and everyone is trying to trick everyone else. There are some silly pranks and some inspired ones. Some work and others fall flat, but all of the gags are sure to tickle children's funny bones and give teachers an opening for discussing what is fun and what is not. What Stevenson's The Night After Christmas (Morrow, 1981) does for the after-Christmas blahs, and Un-Happy New Year, Emma! (Greenwillow, 1989; o.p.) does for New Year's Day, this latest Mud Flat adventure does for April Fool's Day. The author cleverly introduces the calendar event through a series of humorous vignettes starring his familiar woodland creatures. The engaging watercolor cartoons are appealing, but quite small, and are best suited to one-on-one sharing. The easy vocabulary and short chapters also make this a good choice for children ready to move beyond beginning readers.Marty Abbott Goodman, L.J. Bell Elementary School, Rockingham, NC
Kirkus Reviews
April Fools' Day brings out the joker in Mud Flat's animal residents: George the fox breaks out his squirting lapel rose, Newt the gator tries the old dollar-on-a-string trick, a mole produces a note that she claims was left by space aliens. When young Matt and Zack congratulate themselves on seeing through crusty old Mrs. Beekley's party invitation, the joke's on themþthe invitation was real, and they almost miss the party. The deadpan figures in Stevenson's splashy watercolor vignettes add to the fun; none of the pranks are harmful or mean, and often the would-be victims efficiently turn the tables. Tongue-in-cheek humor, delivered in deft and funny chapters. (Fiction. 6-8)
