Publishers Weekly
The name is terrifically cheeky, and wood worker (Fannie within the Kitchen) outdoes herself in those mixed-media illustrations. The unnamed heroine, who resembles a pass among Ramona Quimby and Eloise, generates the name checklist due to her free-spirited, rule-breaking notions. "I had an idea to staple my brother's hair to his pillow," accompanies a photo-collage picture of a stapler clamping onto a pillow nook, with a pen-and-ink drawing of the brother's sound asleep face. contrary, the boy, certain into his pillowcase, clings to his mom: "I am no longer allowed to exploit the stapler anymore." Offill (Last issues, for adults), making her children's publication debut, follows with a litany of forbidden habit encompassing every thing from now not being allowed to make ice cubes ("I had an concept to freeze a useless fly within the ice dice tray") not to being allowed "to speak (even somewhat) approximately beavers anymore" (because she "had an idea that [she] may run away to dwell with the sort and satisfied beavers"). wood worker makes use of a fluid, dependent ink line to show a powerful repertoire of expressions-she's both adept at portraying a playground tattletale and a mother on the finish of her rope. teenagers might be intrigued via the pictures' playful experience of composition in addition to the heroine's brazenness, yet could be stuck off-guard by means of the abrupt end. a long time 4-8.

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz
Our mischievous yet pleasant heroine is the type of child who makes mom and dad and lecturers previous ahead of their time, yet nonetheless makes us snort. As she describes the 17 issues she's no longer allowed to do any longer, we will see why. between her "great ideas" are stapling her brother's hair to his pillow, gluing his slippers to the ground, jogging backward all of the solution to university, and dedicating her George Washington document "to all beavers that ever lived." As she keeps placing her principles into motion at domestic, freezing a lifeless fly within the ice dice tray and ordering dinner from her mom as though she have been a waitress, her mom despairs. they appear to arrive contract with a last hug, yet then even her "I'm sorry" supplies extra mischief forward. chippie combines a full of life pen and ink black line with naturalistic shades and electronic media to offer plausible young ones and an impatient instructor within the lecture room; a stern crossing defend; an infuriated brother reacting to a bombardment with cauliflower. The mottled glance of the paper is completed via crumpling it and submitting with an emery board; Adobe Photoshop is used to rescan and control the kind; bits of photograph college are additional for a clean visible glance. The glue she is smilingly squeezing from the bottle at the jacket has an enticing third-dimensional quality.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Ingenious artwork-a wonderful marriage of electronic imagery and pen-and-ink-is surely the focal point of this successful name. In it, an incorrigible little lady lists the entire vivid principles she's ever had and a few of the methods they've gotten her into difficulty. From stapling her brother's hair to his pillow (no extra stapler) to gluing his slippers to the ground (no extra glue), her outside-the-box considering draws lots of realization, it all damaging. chippie brings intensity and texture to every unfold through adjusting photo-realistic components to scale and embedding them into the artwork. The impression is either outstanding and subtle-"real" wooden grain, blades of grass, the chrome-plated info on lecture room furniture-all are seamlessly built-in round a winsome forged of well-drawn characters. a few photo books are overconceptualized, overdesigned, and usually overdone, yet this one is simply approximately picture-perfect.-Catherine Threadgill, Charleston County Public Library, SC Copyright 2006 Reed company Information.

Kirkus Reviews
A lass tallies her pranks and resulting punishments during this Judith Viorst-like plaint. really, "punishments" is simply too powerful a notice, as stapling her little brother's hair to his pillow, displaying her underpants to classmate Jeremy after which later atmosphere his shoe on fireplace with a magnifying glass turns out to attract no retribution past instructions to not do it back: "I am no longer allowed to take advantage of the glue anymore." a few of her misdemeanors are very humorous: "I am no longer allowed to provide the present of cauliflower anymore." yet a few truly earn genuine punishments: a faculty detention and an escort domestic by means of the crossing protect. ultimately, whilst she says the other of what she fairly means-"I'm sorry"-she earns forgiveness. chippie makes use of ink, paint and clipped images to create lively scenes that includes a deceptively profitable younger narrator with brief, messy hair and, frequently, a convinced or arrogant expression. a few readers may possibly locate this younger envelope-pusher entertainingly lively, yet there are absolute to be those who find themselves going to draw back on the inspiration of pretending to be sorry and having it paintings.
