Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-These titles for emergent readers are designed to fill the middle ground between picture books and chapter books. Ricky's Rat Gang describes how three mice come up with a clever plan to drive away a gang of bullying rats and regain their hold on a supermarket storeroom. In the second book, three boys accept Kevin into their rock band, even though he isn't "cool." When a music executive offers to sign the group, but only without Kevin, the musicians stand by their friend. Just Mabel tells how a girl deals with teasing from her classmates about her name and her clothing. Children will relate to Mabel's hurt feelings and will respect her ability to solve her own problems. All of the stories offer clear and simple texts with appealing plots. The splashy, cartoon illustrations do an excellent job of supporting the narratives. Edgier and more interesting than the titles in the "Hello Reader" series (Scholastic), these books are solid additions.-Robyn Walker, Elgin Court Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
