Summary
The Truman Elementary Troublemakers are a bad bunch. Especially these three: Cap'n Catastrophe, Destructo Dude, and Make-My-Day May. But they are no match for Ginny Louise, the new hedgehog in school. Her unwavering cheerfulness in the face of their bullying will make young readers holler with glee. Full of rhymes, wordplay, and comic misunderstanding, this book will lend itself well to reading aloud as well as discussions about peer dynamics.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Truman Elementary is stuffed to the gills with troublemakers, led by the nefarious Make-My-Day May. But when jubilant, enthusiastic Ginny Louise shows up, things are about to change. Ginny Louise has come to school to learn and make friends, and she isn't going to let a little thing like hostility stop her. When Make-My-Day May growls, Yer gonna pay, Ginny Louise (who only ever heard what she wanted to) reacts cheerfully, and when May demands a showdown, Ginny Louise turns it into a school-wide hoedown. This is a fun new take on the anti­bullying story, as Ginny Louise gets her way through optimism, kindness, and sheer stubbornness. The anthropomorphic animal characters Ginny Louise is a hedgehog, and May is a raccoon are reminiscent of Kevin Henkes' mouse books and Marc Brown's aardvark Arthur. Lively illustrations, the subtle western theme, and a positive message will have kids kicking up their heels in their own hoedowns: yippee-ki-yay--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2010 Booklist"
