Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
This is the fourth appearance of Cody, the irrepressible third grader. In this outing, Cody is worrying about the class talent show. Juggling is a disaster as eggs land all over the kitchen. His father embarrasses him terribly by trying to use a pogo stick while being videotaped for the talent show. Cody feels worthless, dubbing himself the Amazing Untalented Boy, until his adroit teacher finds the perfect use for Cody's talents. Then Cody learns to just enjoy the show. Duffey is a master at capturing the pain and agony endured by elementary age children; Cody is a very realistically drawn character. The humor is gentle and fun.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-When his third-grade teacher decides to put on a talent show, Cody is convinced that he has nothing to contribute. When his attempt at juggling results in disaster, the boy tries his luck at comedy, again with unfortunate results. Finally, Cody discovers his talent while creating a birthday card for his father. He illustrates the signs that introduce each performer and, to everyone's delight, he portrays each student with a flattering likeness. A subplot involves science log entries and sketches on the life cycle of his caterpillar, Joe. The boy watches the insect intently, questions his movements, and even equates his own talent, or lack there of, with it. In the end, Joe emerges beautifully, as does Cody. The strongest element of Duffey's books are her characters and she's right on target here. Written in 12 short, snappy chapters with large print, wide margins, varying sentence length, and relatively simple vocabulary, this easy chapter book will be just as popular as the previous three books about Cody.-Christina Dorr, Whitehall City Schools, OH
