Recensioner

This book is a collection of short poems with matching illustrations. This is another great option for primary students who are getting more advanced in their reading. I think this is a great book to draw kids into their reading as they are short and simple yet silly and fun. I again would love to have this in a future classroom library.

I think this book is fun for primary students. It is a story about kids trying to scare their grandpa, but it doesn't work, and they wonder why. he then tells them the story of when he did get scared back when he was a kid, but we learn it wasn't a real story it was just a play to scare the kids back.

Substance:
On the morning after Christmas,Teddy the Bear and Annie the doll, having been dumped by their kids who received all the newest toys, are rescued from their garbage cans by Chauncey the dog.

Stevenson's witty story of their attempts to get used to being rejected has a happy ending, of course, but is a subtle lesson on the importance to all of us of being loved, and having someone to love.

Style: Stevenson's illustrations, not-quite-realistic watercolors, are perfectly suited to the story.

NOTE: Okay, I'm a Stevenson fan, and can't believe we missed this one when our kids were small, because they loved "The Sea-view Hotel" and "The Worst Person in the World." My favorite is "Could Be Worse!," especially since becoming a grandparent myself.
