Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth McAllister
Tidy Titch is a neatnik. He keeps his room spotless and mother throws this up to his older brother and sister. As Titch watches his siblings clean their rooms, everything that they plan to discard, Titch wants. After the older siblings have emptied their rooms and tidied-up, mother looks in Titch's room. Now, all of the throw-aways are in his room and his room is a mess.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-- Hutchins has a knack for turning incidents of everyday childhood into enjoyable stories. In this case, it's messy rooms and hand-me-downs. Introduced in Titch Macmillan, 1971 and You'll Soon Grow into Them, Titch Greenwillow, 1983, the beguiling preschooler is back along with his older brother and sister. Their mother praises young Titch for his neat room and asks Peter and Mary to clean up their untidy ones. Mary decides to throw out a dollhouse she's too old for. ``I'm not,'' pipes up Titch, ``I'll have it.'' Peter is discarding a space suit and cowboy outfit he has outgrown. ``They're not too small for me . . . I'll have them,'' says Titch as he gathers more and more of the cast-offs. By story's end, the siblings have neatened their rooms to their mother's delight, while Titch is happily at play in a now-cluttered room full of newfound objects. Hutchins's bright pen-and-ink and watercolor drawings, clear large typeface, and clean pages will appeal to children as a story-hour selection or a read-aloud. Or perhaps just to peruse one child's junk, which so happily becomes another's treasure. --Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library

Meet the Author

Pat Hutchins, one of seven children, was born in Yorkshire, England, and grew up in the surrounding countryside, which she still loves. At a very early age she knew that she wanted to be an artist and was encouraged by an elderly couple who would give her a chocolate bar for each picture she drew. A local art school offered her a scholarship and she studied there for three years, continuing her training at Leeds College of Art, where she specialized in illustration. Her career in the children's book field began with the highly acclaimed Rosie's Walk, a 1968 ALA Notable Book. Since then she has written five novels and created more than twenty-five picture books. She was awarded England's prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 1974 for The Wind Blew. Pat Hutchins lives with her husband in London, England.
