Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 5-7

Claudia wants smart, kind Peter to win the election for president of the seventh-grade-class so she steps up as his campaign manager and gets her peers involved in selling him as the best person for the job. They show the other students that bribes, threats, and empty promises are not the way to win this year. This realistic hi/lo book includes some attractive features for the target audience, including introductions to the characters in the opening pages, a variety of fonts, many sections of dialogue, numerous spot cartoon drawings, and short sentences. Teachers will appreciate the brief discussion guide and Facthound Internet links.-Sharon R. Pearce, Longfellow Elementary School, Oak Park, IL
