Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-This third book in the series will appeal to readers who are almost ready for full chapter books. Ike and his friend Buzzy want to build a tree house in a willow in an open field but can't seem to agree on any aspect of the project, so they go home angry with one another. Ike then decides to use the supplies to make a playhouse for his younger sister, Mem, without asking Buzzy. Ultimately, he apologizes, and the boys resume their friendship. Alter's drawings, especially of the weeping willow tree, look amateurish; they have a quiet, flat quality that does not reflect the tension in the narrative. Still, Jennings's simple yet realistic story presents situations easily understood by the intended audience, and the characters' dialogue and hurt feelings are adeptly expressed.-JoAnn Jonas, Chula Vista Public Library, San Diego, CA Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A spat separates best friends, but only temporarily, in this slender sequel to The Tornado Watchers (p. 882). Ike and Buzzy are forever bickering over little things, but Buzzy's contentiousness becomes so annoying when the two try to construct a tree house in a willow that at last Ike just hauls the scrap wood off to build a playhouse for his little sister Mem. When Buzzy finds out that Ike used the wood without asking, he stomps off in a huff, leaving Ike with only Mem as a playmate--some fun, but not the same. Alter adds staid ink drawings of nearly expressionless children to this low-key episode. In the end, Ike and Buzzy make up, with a bit of bending on both sides, and persuade an at-first-reluctant Mem to let them drag the playhouse beneath the willow. The relationships here, particularly the sibling one, show some texture, but the author puts less into delineating his characters than just having them model mannerly and unmannerly behavior. A utilitarian tale for new chapter book readers. (Fiction. 7-9)
