Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for ALWAYS IN TROUBLE:
"Jones's simple but amusing cartoon-style illustrations add up to a solid offering in the naughty-dog division." -KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Whimsical cartoon illustrations make Toby's troublesome and dangerous behavior seem humorous and lighthearted, in the same spirit that misbehaving is handled in such stories as David Shannon's No, David! (1998). Children will delight in Toby's antics." -BOOKLIST

Praise for BRANCHES books:
"These books should be considered for larger libraries wanting to enhance their easy-reader collections." -SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"A nice stepping stone to more advanced chapter books." -BOOKLIST

*"Jones takes 'The Three Bears' for a dizzy spin in this laff-riot series opener.... Being cast against both genre type and publishers' convention, Princess likes 'dirty sneakers, giant bugs, mud puddles, monster trucks, and cheesy pizza' far more than fairies, princesses or anything pink, and she also (for a wonder) has dark skin in the cartoon illustrations.... Fledgling readers will agree with Princess' bemused comment: 'This Lane of Fake-Believe is crazy-cakes!'" -KIRKUS REVIEWS, starred review

"The story...will have kids guffawing with the silly puns and cheering for the ingenious Princess Pink in this subverted version of the more traditional tale." -BULLETIN OF THE CENTER FOR CHILDREN'S BOOKS

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Princess Pink is not a princess at all. She does not care for pink or princesses. Instead, she likes things like dirt-covered sneakers, mud puddles, and adventures. During the night, she goes to the kitchen to find something to eat. Through a portal in the refrigerator, Princess enters the Land of Fake-Believe where she meets Moldylocks, a gal whose clothes are spotted in swampy green. Moldylocks takes Princess to the home of the three beards for a bowl of chili. The mixed up adventure takes off in a fracture folk tale way. The two girls try out the chairs, chili, and beds. The beards chase the twosome and capture Moldylocks. It is up to Princess to save her friend. The illustrations are bright and bold like comics. The conversations between characters and comments by the characters are in speech bubbles. The chapters are short in length for early chapter book readers. Children who love a twist to familiar stories will probably enjoy this first story from the “Princess Pink and the land of Fake-Believe” series. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung; Ages 7 to 9.
