Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Cheating is a major issue in schools, so it is not surprising that an early reader would tackle the subject head on. Rusty is worried because they are learning about different shells and are supposed to memorize the information and be able to recognize the various patterns. After playing with his friends Rusty is even more worried so he swam back to school. The shells for the test were all set up and he was able to identify each of them. The gang all take the test and Rusty scores 100, but he doesn't feel good about it. When his friends play name that shell, he is determined to really study and be able to name all of them. While that is laudable, Rusty really should have confessed to the teacher that he had cheated and accepted the consequences. This ending is a bit wishy washy implying that it was OK to cheat if you go back and really learn what you were supposed to. 2003, HarperCollins, Ages 4 to 7.
