Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amanda MacGregor
When fourth grade Mallory McDonald's class goes on a trip to Washington, D.C., her teacher requires the students to keep a journal chronicling the places they visit and their reactions. Mallory fills her journal with not only writing but also cartoon panels, doodles, pictures, and other mementos from the journey. She follows some writing prompts from her teacher to capture her impressions of the various monuments and museums the class visits, listing interesting facts and observations. Additionally, she uses her journal to work through her feelings about her best friend Mary Ann, getting a crush on a boy, and choosing to spend more of the trip with him than with Mallory. Mallory's teacher has packed the itinerary full of sightseeing so there is already plenty to write about. But add in trouble with friends, getting separated from the group while in the Museum of Natural History, an irritating loose tooth, and annoying hotel roommates and Mallory's trip becomes much more eventful than she had anticipated. Mallory's journal provides readers with an educational mini-tour of celebrated attractions in the nation's capital. Though part of the "Mallory" series, this title easily stands on its own. Mallory is totally likeable and her enthusiasm for the trip and her common worries will quickly endear her to new readers. The engaging format of a hand-written journal filled with whimsical illustrations will remind readers of Marissa Moss's "Amelia" books. Reviewer: Amanda MacGregor
School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—While on a field trip to Washington, DC, Mallory and her fourth-grade classmates are required to keep a journal. Mallory records a "list of interesting things" that she has seen, but also explains what is happening, or not happening, with her best friend. Mary Ann is supposed to be her partner, but they aren't spending much time together, which causes Mallory to question their relationship and become separated from her class at a museum. She juggles the new situation of a friend interested in boys with trying to display "exemplary" behavior and keeping tabs on her loose tooth. The story abounds with facts about the places the children visit, such as the Washington Monument and National Zoo. Mallory's journal entries include pencil drawings that complement the tale. Readers will relate to the child and enjoy the format of this latest entry in the chapter-book series.—Bethany A. Lafferty, Henderson District Public Library, NV
