Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Squeezed between a big brother and a kid sister, Freddy employs newfound histrionic abilities to escape being ``the peanut butter part of a sandwich.'' Ages 5-8. (July)
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- First published in 1969 with turquoise and yellow pictures by Lois Axeman (Reilly & Lee, 1969; o.p.), this was substantially updated and revised in 1981 (Bradbury) and reillustrated in black and white by Amy Aitken. That same text has now been reillustrated by Trivas in bright watercolor washes and black crayon line. The multiracial cast of fifth- and sixth-graders still welcome the second-grader; Freddy still proudly sheds his resentment over being ranked as the ``one in the middle'' of his siblings; and the theme of being glad to be you is still validly presented. Trivas's lively renderings depict contemporary children and settings in an edition sized to match her reillustrated version of Blume's The Pain and the Great One (Bradbury, 1984). --Susan Hepler, Alexandria City Public Schools, VA

    Bought while hoping

    Our 8 year old daughter is not a fan of reading. We've looked for books that might retain her interest without luck before deciding on this one. I read Judy Blume when I was a kid and thought that maybe she would enjoy it to. Not only did she READ the book, she also enjoyed it. She was thrilled by the characters and talked to us about the things she read, getting excited about it all. For kids who just don't think they will ever enjoy reading, Judy Blume is definitely an author to consider!

    I loved this book!!!

    This book teaches you that it doesn't matter how small you are if you want to do something because it just matters if you have the talent.

    Wonderful Wow!

    I am the middle child and when I read this book I liked it because I felt like Freddy. When I finished reading it made me feel better.
