Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leona Illig
Third-grader Bobby has his hands full. His parents want to adopt a baby, the Thanksgiving school program is coming up, guests are arriving for the holiday—and there seems to be something wrong with his beloved beagle puppy, Lucy. How Bobby, a shy boy with a talent for drawing, copes with all these problems is the basis for this charming book, the sixth in the "Absolutely Lucy" series. Bobby and his family are portrayed as real people living ordinary lives. They may not be perfect, and they might make mistakes now and then, but they are doing their best to help and love one another. The author does an excellent job of using the plot to reveal Bobby's kindness, as well as his uncertainty about the big changes coming in his family. For example, in the middle of coping with his beagle's illness, and with the pressure of the Thanksgiving program, Bobby discovers what it takes to be a good big brother. And he also learns that caring for others—including your dog—is one of the most important things in life. The gentle humor and warmth of this chapter book is hard to overstate. The illustrations are sparse and done in tones of gray, but they complement the quiet, easy rhythm of the text. Parents, teachers, and children alike are bound to be entertained by this installment of the "Lucy" series. Readers do not need to start with the first "Lucy" book to enjoy this one. Teachers, however, will probably want to present the entire series, from the beginning, in their classrooms. Reviewer: Leona Illig
