Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Typical childhood and adolescent miseries-having to wear glasses and braces; getting up early; embarrassing moments at school; losing at try-outs; forgetting things; coping with grown-ups, crushes, siblings-are the subjects of these 40 light verses, most of which are written in rhymed (sometimes forced) meter. Humorous pen-and-ink sketches accompany most of the selections. This collection is reminiscent of Judith Viorst's If I Were in Charge of the World and Other Worries (Atheneum, 1981), but is less original in format. Additional fare that zeroes in on preadolescents' emotional ups and downs.-Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
