Editorial Reviews

Carrie Harasimowicz
A young girl describes all of the "tooly uncool" aspects of Dad's new girlfriend...she plays the tuba, sings opera to her goldfish, wears sneakers with skirts, and more. Toward the end of this list, however she admits that Dad's girlfriend is around to help her with test, projects, and bad days. The illustrations extend the amusing text, capturing each character's quirks and the emotions of an evolving relationship.
— The Horn Book Guide
Children's Literature
The girl in the story doesn't like her father's new girlfriend. She thinks the girlfriend is totally uncool—until she starts to listen and learn from the girlfriend. By the end of the book the little girl decides that Elizabeth is okay after all, and she will give her a chance. This is the perfect book for a child who is having trouble getting along with a new adult in his or her life. The first part of the book describes things that the child wishes an adult would do with him/her, but the end talks about the good things that adults do to help children. The illustrations are bright and colorful, and describe rather well what the child is thinking about Dad's new girlfriend. 2001 (orig. 1998), Carolrhoda Books, $15.95 and $6.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Nicole Peterson
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Dad calls his new girlfriend Sweet Potato, but his sullen daughter won't call her anything, and she considers her "totally uncool." The woman's offbeat taste in clothes, her "porcupiny" hair, and her strange habits-like speaking Japanese to her plants-are particularly upsetting. However, as she considers all that is not right with Dad's girlfriend, the child has to admit that Sweet Potato (a.k.a., Elizabeth) does have some positive traits. She is encouraging, helps with homework, and knows how to keep a secret. "Maybe there's hope for her yet." Monroe's illustrations, done in muted pastel tones, have a perspective and design that are suggestive of children's art. This story is short, simple, and appealing. It is suitable for libraries needing to round out their holdings in family relationships, especially those involving single-parent families.-Roxanne Burg, Thousand Oaks Library, CA
