Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 1^-2. Bottner's original Bootsie book, Bootsie Barker Bites (1992), was a wickedly delightful picture book. Readers looking for more of the same will find this beginning reader less successful, and it lacks the Koolaid brightness and dramatic exaggeration of Peggy Rathmann's illustrations. The title character is still an unrepentant bully, however, and this story is narrated by a boy who is victimized by Bootsie in their ballet class. His determination to quit ballet is tempered by his basketball coach's urgings to keep it up, since dancing is improving his game. Eventually Bootsie antagonizes even the ballet teacher and engineers her own catastrophic downfall. Every kid who knows a bully (and isn't that every kid?) will enjoy watching Bootsie Barker get her comeuppance in the end. Karas' expressive drawings, washed with restrained colors, add their own brand of humor to the book. For larger collections. --Carolyn Phelan"
