Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Kate Morris is soon to celebrate her seventh birthday and is happily preparing for the pirate themed party. . . except for several problems. Her parents insist that she invite her entire class including bossy, disagreeable Violet. After preparing the handmade invitations with her best friend Jake, Kate arrives early at school and places them in all the desks. Soon the awful rumors about the party begin to fly around the classroom, cafeteria and playground. Andrew says that someone must eat spider legs. Charlene is certain that somebody will be made to stick a noodle up his or her nose. Kate tries desperately to stop the rumors, but new ones keep circulating. Will anyone come to the party? This easy reading paperback is sure to resonate with all children faced with difficulties with their classmates. The black and white illustrations, including the parrot announcing each short chapter, will be enjoyed by young readers. 2004, Orca Book Publishers, Ages 6 to 8.
—Sylvia Firth
CM Magazine
"An engaging story with which new readers can easily identify....School and public libraries, plus classroom collections, should add A Noodle Up Your Nose to serve the newly emerging independent reader who wants the challenge of moving on to chapter books."
Canadian Literature
"Creating suspense around the eventual outcome and incorporating a clever twist into the story's resolution, Wishinsky affirms the value of friendship in resolving Kate's dilemma."
Calgary Herald
"Will resonate with young readers, but parents will identify with the turmoil and energy as well."
Resource Links
"Many young children will take great pleasure from Kate's perseverance and indomitable spirit as she plans a truly excellent pirate-theme party...A good choice for readers who are becoming confident with beginning novels."
Quill & Quire
"Laliberte's cartoony illustrations ooze personality."

Read an Excerpt

This year Kate was going to have the best birthday party.

The only trouble was her parents insisted she invite her whole class...

"I can't invite Violet," said Kate. "She's so bossy, she always wants everyone to do everything her way."

"Just boss her back," said Kate's dad.

Kate sighed. That was easy for her dad to say. No one could boss Violet back. Violet always got her way.
