Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With two new students in the one-room schoolhouse featured in Seal Island School, Pru and her pals start the year off with a bang in The Seal Island Seven by Susan Bartlett, illus. by Tricia Tusa. They discover that someone's been destroying fairy houses, and they band together to save an island tradition.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-In this second book about the children who live on a small island off the coast of Maine, Pru and her friends discover that someone is destroying the fairy houses they are building in the woods. (The building of fairy houses to make wishes come true is an age-old tradition on Seal Island.) She and the other six students in the school then set out to find the culprit. The likable characters and gentle tone make this a pleasant read-aloud with an environmental message. It is also a terrific choice for beginning chapter-book readers. The text is illustrated with black-and-white line drawings that lend additional humor to the friends' antics.-Jean Lowery, Bishop Woods Elementary School, New Haven, CT Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
School is starting again on tiny Seal Island, and all the children are excited about their new classmates: Clara and Sophie Hall. Picking up the story from Seal Island School (1999), the addition of two new students to their cozy one-room school changes the social fabric in ways the children had not anticipated. Nicholas, who has been best friends with Prudence for a year, is getting older and appears to be a tad smitten with Clara. Prudence feels strange about this unexpected development, and doesn't quite know what to do. In addition to the school adjustments, a controversy is brewing. The children's fairy houses are being destroyed. Building fairy houses in the woods has been a hobby of island children for many generations, and the children are upset. The seven children try a little youthful espionage, but are still surprised at the culprit: one of their environmentally minded mothers is knocking down their houses. An island meeting is called, accusations fly, and the children come up with the solution that everyone can be happy with. Tusa's jolly black-and-white illustrations, with her round-faced island children, bring this sweet story to life. Bartlett celebrates island life without romanticizing it. What child wouldn't want to be free to walk anywhere in his community, dress up a pony with a sign, cavort in the woods, meet the ferry every day, and attend school with every one of his friends and the sensible, lovable Miss Sparling? A treasure for new readers. (Fiction. 6-9)
