Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Oliver wants to build a fort but he does not want his sister Amanda involved in any way. He tries to find some materials for his fort but everything available cannot be used without permission. Mother would be upset if he used the picnic table, and his dad would not be too happy if he used some poles from the garden. When his friends arrive to join him, the makeshift fort falls apart. They all decide to see what they can find, and Oliver's father takes him to their garage. There are lots of things to be removed and most of them are ideal for the fort. The other boys bring a large carton, poles, and a blanket and pretty soon they have constructed quite a fort. They will not let Oliver's sister Amanda near the fort. The work is hard and they are hot. What do they see? Amanda and her friend Lollipop enjoying some refreshing lemonade under a tree. In the end the boys decide that the lemonade is worth the trade to let the girls join them in their fort.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Oliver and Amanda Pig return in another irresistible adventure, told in four fast-paced chapters. After an unsuccessful attempt at building the best fort ever, Oliver enlists the assistance of his two porcine buddies and they create a wonderful structure. Amanda asks to help, but is told, "No girls allowed." However, she and her friend are willing to share their fresh lemonade with the hot, tired boys if they can enter the fort. That night, the boys camp out in the fortress. After hearing a ghost story, they are spooked by a "snake" that turns out to be a garden hose. Then someone or something starts pinching them, and they discover that bringing a bug collection to a sleepover is not a great idea. In their panic, the friends accidentally destroy the fort. They end up sleeping in the house, where they make plans to rebuild. Simple dialogue, short sentences, and repeated words make this a great selection for beginning readers. The cartoon illustrations add amusing details and provide visual clues that support the text. An excellent choice for fans of the series as well as initiates.-Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
