Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Third grader Marvin is in big trouble when a rumor begins circulating that he will ride his new bike down Suicide Hill. His classmates and older students all plan to witness the big event. The trouble is that Marvin doesn't know how his new bike works and he is terrified of the notorious Suicide Hill. When Marvin lets on that he may not be up to the challenge, kids start calling him "chicken." This humorous and wise story about Marvin's dilemma is well-written and entertaining. Kids will easily identify with Marvin and see him through to the plot's winning conclusion. The text and characters ring true in this book, which is the latest title in the publisher's "Marvin Redpost" series. 2000, Random House, and $3.99. Ages 5 to 9. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati
