Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Four good friends, Boris, Morris, Doris and Norris, didn't seem to know very much, but they were very good friends. They try to make lunch, but it is too complicated. The antics are very much reminiscent of the "Amelia Bedelia" stories with the words taken literally or lots of play upon the words. Illustrations are a delight and really show the goofyness of the four friends. part of the "I Can Read" series.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1Shades of the Stupids! Boris, Morris, Doris, and Norris are four friends who are known as the Know-Nothings. They are determined to prepare something to eat but can't figure out how to do it. The noodles are too hard, the bananas have on strange coats, and fries obviously are only to be found in France. Finally, they decide to head there. So, after arming themselves with a French horn, French toast, etc., they set out on an adventure that culminates at a cart selling French fries. Quirky and very silly, the story is simple, easy to read, and adorned with brightly colored cartoons of funny, appealing characters.Jan Shepherd Ross, Dixie Elementary Magnet School, Lexington, KY
