Publishers Weekly
The identify is terrifically cheeky, and wood worker (Fannie within the Kitchen) outdoes herself in those mixed-media illustrations. The unnamed heroine, who resembles a move among Ramona Quimby and Eloise, generates the identify record 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 photo of a stapler clamping onto a pillow nook, with a pen-and-ink drawing of the brother's slumbering 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 booklet debut, follows with a litany of forbidden habit encompassing every little thing from no longer 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] could run away to dwell with the sort and satisfied beavers"). wood worker makes use of a fluid, stylish ink line to express a magnificent repertoire of expressions-she's both adept at portraying a playground tattletale and a mother on the finish of her rope. children could be intrigued by means of the pictures' playful experience of composition in addition to the heroine's brazenness, yet will be stuck off-guard by way 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 academics previous ahead of their time, yet nonetheless makes us chortle. As she describes the 17 issues she's now not allowed to do from now on, we will be able to 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 option to university, and dedicating her George Washington file "to all beavers that ever lived." As she maintains placing her principles into motion at domestic, freezing a useless 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" can provide extra mischief forward. chippie combines a full of life pen and ink black line with naturalistic shades and electronic media to give plausible young children 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 through crumpling it and submitting with an emery board; Adobe Photoshop is used to rescan and manage the kind; bits of picture university 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 faultless marriage of electronic imagery and pen-and-ink-is indubitably the point of interest of this profitable identify. In it, an incorrigible little lady lists all of the brilliant principles she's ever had and some 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 awareness, it all adverse. chippie brings intensity and texture to every unfold by way of adjusting photo-realistic parts to scale and embedding them into the paintings. The impact is either extraordinary and subtle-"real" wooden grain, blades of grass, the chrome-plated information on school room furniture-all are seamlessly built-in round a winsome forged of well-drawn characters. a few photograph books are overconceptualized, overdesigned, and customarily 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. truly, "punishments" is just too robust a observe, as stapling her little brother's hair to his pillow, exhibiting her underpants to classmate Jeremy after which later atmosphere his shoe on hearth with a magnifying glass turns out to attract no retribution past instructions to not do it back: "I am now not allowed to exploit the glue anymore." a few of her misdemeanors are very humorous: "I am no longer allowed to provide the reward of cauliflower anymore." yet a few really earn actual punishments: a college detention and an escort domestic by means of the crossing safeguard. eventually, while she says the other of what she quite means-"I'm sorry"-she earns forgiveness. chippie makes use of ink, paint and clipped pictures to create full of life scenes that includes a deceptively profitable younger narrator with brief, messy hair and, frequently, a convinced or boastful expression. a few readers could locate this younger envelope-pusher entertainingly lively, yet there are certain to be those people who are going to draw back on the suggestion of pretending to be sorry and having it paintings.
