Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This book aims to remove the stigma from a pesky elementary-school plague, attacking the subject with a combination of factual prose and jangly couplets. Cartoons, on the garish side, show the lice having a barbecue in some unfortunate child's hair. Ages 4-10. (Mar.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Finally, a simple, non-threatening, explanation of the nuisance of lice. Almost every child and family will encounter them somewhere in their school career whether on themselves or a classmate. Humorous text and cartoon-like drawings, simple explanations and instructions demystify this byproduct of togetherness. Each page contains text for children, but also includes more detailed explanations for adults. Complete instructions on how to rid the family of these pesky creatures is included.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 4The progression of lice infestation and treatment is told in rhyme, accompanied by Girouard's cartoons of purple-headed lice sporting multicolored T-shirts and grilling hot dogs for the family reunions as their population grows and grows. An infected girl wonders what is causing her to itch as her mother treats her head and her father launders everything in the house. It becomes a family adventure. A two-line rhyme on each page tells the story for younger readers with expanded information for older children further down on the page. Stereotypes about lice infestation are put to rest by Caffey's sensible text, a doctor's note to concerned grown-ups, and Girouard's amusing illustrations.Ann Cook, Winter Park Public Library, FL
