Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Rhyme Time Who better than Lee Bennett Hopkins to introduce a variety of verse, as editor of Oh, No! Where Are My Pants?: And Other Disasters: Poems, illus. by Wolf Erlbruch. The 14 poems introduce everyday situations, from the familiar calamity of classmates separated in Susan Hart Lindquist's First Day to Hopkins's own Stage Fright (I wanted the role./ The Prince./ The Prince./ I got it./ Knew it./ I was totally convinced) to Karla Kuskin's closing That Terrible Day, for which the narrator suggests amnesia as the best remedy: All in all you may find/ it is better to simply/ turn blank as a wall,/ as I did./ Now ask me what happened./ I cannot recall. (Mar.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-These 14 short poems all depict little moments of being human. The disasters referred to in the subtitle range from big to small, from comic ("Hello apple!/Shiny red./CHOMP. CHOMP./Hello worm./ Where's your head?") to sad (a child is shown holding a dead rabbit, a classroom pet: "His tall straight ears, his long quick feet/Trailed like falling velvet drapes."). Embarrassment, shame, fear, chagrin: all of these feelings are so common in childhood that a collection of poems about them seems natural. Erlbruch, a well-known German artist, creates pictures that show this range of emotions beautifully. At first glance, they are deceptively simple and spare. A closer look reveals that what seems to be a quietly colored drawing actually has the subtle variation in texture of a collage. Ample white space, simple backgrounds, and a font that looks both childlike and elegant all combine to enhance this lovely book. A winner from a prolific poet/editor/compiler and a talented illustrator.-Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
