Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Wearing frilly dresses and performing in a talent show are not high on Mary Beth's list of favorite activities. They are important to Mary Beth's mother because she was never able to do them herself, but Mary Beth chooses to pull some shenanigans in order to wear her comfy jeans and sweatshirt. As for activities, she would rather draw than perform. She spends a great deal of time trying to get her mother to believe this. She also has to deal with the everyday trials and tribulations of Travis Bee, the class prankster. In the long run, Mary Beth's own talents show through and she and her mother come to understand each other better. Ted Staunton successfully uses a format of journal entries alternating with narration to keep the reader laughing. This chapter book is part of "The Kids from Monkey Mountain" series featuring realistic, well-paced episodes of humor for students in early grades. 2001, Northern Lights Young Novels/Red Deer Press, $4.95. Ages 7 to 10. Reviewer:Nancy Garhan Attebury
