Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Robyn is angry with her classmate, Grant. He annoys everyone with his insulting rhymes—Tony the Phony and Robyn the Goblin. When he taunts a shy girl by saying, "Shelly the Smelly," Robyn thinks Grant has gone too far. She decides to befriend Shelly and invites her over for an afternoon of games. Shelly brings a suitcase filled with dolls and accessories. Playing with dolls is not Robyn's idea of a good time, but she admires Shelly's artistic talent. When Shelly's dad wins tickets for an important hockey game, her classmates look at her differently and get even more excited about the event. Shelly is afraid to tell them that her dad gave the tickets away and she will not be attending. Robyn decides to help her out by watching the game with her on TV and helping her write a report as though she had actually been there. When Shelly gets up to read the bogus report to the class, she stops and tells the truth. Everyone is relieved. Some aspects of the pen-and-ink illustrations may be confusing for readers not familiar with the series. It is not clear from the pictures whether Robyn is male or female. The hairdo and clothing depicted could suit either sex and the aversion to dolls seems more appropriate for a male. No identifying pronouns are used for her throughout the story. She is identified as female in the blub on the back of the book. Part of the "First Novels" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
