More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Big and little sisters everywhere will herald the return of the indefatigable Dolores, who with her fly-away hair and patched overalls presents a stunning contrast to her impeccably attired older sister, Faye. Here Faye is entertaining a special guest, Cindy Snappleby, who appears at the door dressed to impress in heart-shaped sunglasses, pink polka-dot dress and wide-brimmed hat. Dolores, however, is not impressed, and in her own inimitable way shows that she knows how to crack Cindy's cool-as-a-cucumber veneer. The younger sister gets the last, expertly targeted word in this tale, which is as refreshing as Dolores's prior escapades ( Faye and Dolores ; Happy Birthday, Dolores ). The diverting details--from Dolores's toy clutter to Cindy's disdainful glances--packed in Samuels's illustrations will keep children chuckling, even if they've never had to contend with a little sister. Ages 3-6. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
Gr 1-2-- Faye is all ready to entertain her friend Cindy Snappleby, but Dolores is being her little sister self. When snooty Cindy arrives, Dolores is not impressed and soon finds a way to destroy Cindy's cucumber-cool facade with the help of three happy, hoppy, green frogs. Fans of Duncan and Dolores (1986), Faye and Dolores (1985, both Bradbury), and Happy Birthday, Dolores (Orchard, 1989) will enjoy yet another meeting with this pint-sized powerhouse. With its mini slice-of-life appeal and realistic dialogue, the text reads well and will seem familiar to siblings old and young, but it's the lively and colorful pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations that dominate and delight. --Jody McCoy, Casady School, Oklahoma City
