School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Another fun adventure with the kids featured in Class Clown (1987) and Class President (1990, both Morrow). The school board has threatened to close Edison-Armstrong School, and fifth-graders Julio, Lucas, Cricket, and Zoe decide to form the Save Our School Committee. When bossy Jennifer Harper, a sixth grader, takes over the committee, Julio decides he must do something on his own to help. In between searching for a worthwhile project, he accidentally sets off the fire alarm, frightens his grandmother by walking on the window ledge of their apartment, and comes up with the best birthday gift for his brother. In the end, Jennifer gets all the credit for saving the building, which is disappointing to Julio, who worked so hard, but not unrealistic. Hurwitz once again offers an amusing and entertaining book. She also convincingly conveys the young people's desire to keep their school for their younger brothers and sisters. A surefire hit.-Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
