Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Treadway M.Ed
Ten-year-old Polly thinks her family has gone totally off the deep end as plans for a crazy wedding materialize. Dr. Winkler, a dentist, is marrying Veronica Kreep who moved into the neighborhood. Vincent is her tall and pale eldest son who never smiles, but flies on a skateboard; Damon, on the other hand, smiles way too much as if he is hiding concoctions and brews in the basement. The youngest child, green-eyed Esmerelda, who mysteriously disappears like a cat, has a favorite pet tarantula named Bubbles. Is Uncle Vlad from Transylvania really a vampire? Could it be that roasted rattlesnake will be served at the wedding reception? Perhaps there is a solution. If Polly can prove to her dad that the Kreeps are a weird family, he would call off the wedding to Veronica, especially when Grandma tells him herself. Since Polly only has two days to do it, the story continues to be a humorous look into the lives of these families. Her plan works (in a sense) to uncover the truth, but yields surprising results. There is indeed a somewhat unusual wedding ceremony with a ship's captain presiding and black decorations. However, Polly learns that creepy brothers, mysterious green eyes, and a frightened little girl are part of being a normal family just like hers. To everyone's delight, she decides to rescue Esme from a high tree by gently talking with her. It turns out that she was afraid of Polly's big sister Joy and younger brother Petey all along. Even Damon's "sinister plan" (a special punch) was the hit of the reception! Simple sentences make this a quick read but still a good story that features a good mix of characters. The reading level might be lower than expected for this age range. Theseries would, however, be terrific for Reader's Theatre or further character study as students explore additional story lines.
