Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this sequel to Maxie, Rosie and Earl--Partners in Grime , Rosie runs for fourth-grade president in an attempt to gain more clout at school. Using Maxie's advice about choosing a platform that will distinguish her from other candidates, Rosie focuses on the abysmal cafeteria lunches. But her two popular competitors wrangle strategic information out of the easily intimidated Maxie. Seeking revenge, Rosie spreads a secret to besmirch the reputation of one of her opponents. Her plan backfires, but she learns from the experience. Park's characters are no more likable this time around: Rosie fully deserves the ``snitch'' moniker, and isn't remorseful until it is she who suffers. Further, the comedy is strained and the dialogue corny. Still, Rosie's first-person narrative offers an inside look at school elections and the ramifications of resorting to smear tactics. Ages 8-11. (Oct.)
Children's Literature
Rosie Swanson considers herself a regular, average fourth grade girl. Perhaps it is her ordinariness that makes her so endearing. She is certainly a character to which many readers will relate. She is an honest and rule abiding student who takes her self-appointed role of secret informer very seriously. In fact, she so strongly believes that all kids should always follow all of the rules that she decides to run for president of the fourth grade. After a little coercing, she is able to enlist the aid of two of her best friends. Secretly, the three of them devise a political platform that promises to change the quality of the food that is served in their school cafeteria. They put a great deal of time and effort into developing campaign slogans, posters, and buttons. Imagine Rosie's surprise when she discovers that her campaign slogan has been "borrowed" by an opponent. Throughout this experience, Rosie learns about the political process as well as about values and honesty. Although the characters in the book sometimes call each other negative names such as "four-eyed geek" and "fat kid," this is an unfortunately accurate portrayal of how many children treat one another. Rosie, however, admirably attempts to defend herself and she sets a good example for other kids. This book is part of the "Geek Chronicles" trilogy. 2000 (orig. 1991), Random House, $4.50. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Denise Daley

Meet the Author

Barbara Park
Barbara Park is one of  today's funniest and best-loved writers for middle graders.  Her novels, which include Dear God, HELP!!! Love Earl; Skinnybones; The Kid in the Red Jacket; and Mick Harte Was Here have won numerous children's book awards.  Barbara thinks that the wonderful thing about writing humor is that she is able to deal with serious issues in a more lighthearted way.  Barbara's fans always want to know whether or not her characters are based on her own children (she has two sons) -- in fact, they are not.  But having her sons has made it easier for her to know how kids talk and think.  What matters most to Barbara is that her books are bringing a few smiles to her readers.

Barbara lives in Paradise Valley, Arizona, with her husband, Richard. She holds a B.S. from the University of Alabama.

    Abby * Read of all books

    I can be called a Rosie because I have glasses, but they are not geeky. I have a best friend named Genna & and she and i do everything together. Although I am not in the fourth grade I am in 6th. but there are a lot of cool kids like cassie, Brittney, and a lot more.
