Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 2 In this rhyming companion to One Odd Day (Sylvan Dell, 2006), a boy wakes up to find that everything he sees represents an even number. His room suddenly has eight beds, and his mother has two heads. The child's "even" day gets odder on a class trip to the zoo. Alligators have antlers and lions have wings, all in multiples of two. At the end of the story, things return to normal, although there is a hint of more craziness to come. The back matter includes some interesting math activities. Lee's brightly colored illustrations are fantastical and contain strange elements not related to the concepts of even and odd. For example, the bouquet on the kitchen table is made up of fried eggs on stems, and the school bus seems to ride through the ocean on the way back from the field trip. In the earlier title, the boy's day includes both odd numbers and odd events. Together with that book, this one makes more sense, but alone the strange illustrations are a bit baffling and a little disconcerting. For a book about odd and even numbers that can stand alone, try Stuart J. Murphy's Missing Mittens (HarperCollins, 2001).-Donna Cardon, Provo City Library, UT

Meet the Author

Karen Lee has quite a humorous imagination, and it shows in her illustrations for One Odd Day, My Even Day and My Half Day. These books are full of odd (and even) hidden items that children will love to find. Karen has also written and illustrated ABC Safari. Each of her illustrations begins with thoughtful design and drawing. The paintings are finished with watercolor on illustration board. Karen majored in illustration at the Columbus (OH) College of Art and Design. She began her career as a storyboard artist and editorial illustrator but it wasn't until she had children of her own that she discovered her true artistic passion: children's illustration. Karen's ABC Safari was the runner up for the 2005 SCBWI Don Freeman Grant. She is also the recipient of the 2004 SCBWI Magazine Merit Award for Illustration for her wok in Highlights For Children. She and her husband, also an illustrator, are raising their family outside of Raleigh, NC. Karen's children join her on many research trips to museums, zoos and aquariums-a tough job, but someone has to do it!


Doris Fisher (Happy Birthday to Whooo?, My Half Day, One Odd Day, and My Even Day) loves writing in verse.

    A reviewer

    If you read My Odd Day and enjoyed it, you will also delight in this companion book, My Even Day. Authors Doris Fisher and Dani Sneed have continued showing math concepts in a wonderful, zany story. It¿s zany in an irresistible imaginative way guaranteed to catch the attention of the reader who will be drawn into counting the six wings on a trio of lions or the Scramblesaurus with ten eyes! What is a Scramblesaurus? Read the book to discover it and its number of features. Like in the first book, the writing is in rhyme that flows easily, and the even numbers are in bold type for beginning readers. Illustrator Karen Lee nicely integrates all of the numeric concepts in fanciful paintings with movement, rhythm, and humor! The activities at the back challenge children to count, multiply, and solve riddles. Children from Kindergarten to Second Grade will take to this book, not only for math, but also for beginning reading skills and enjoyment above all. Highly recommended.
