Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Full-color cartoon illustrations and vocabularies suitable for children learning to read are featured in these earnest offerings. In The Lonely Only Dog, Harry longs for a playmate. When his owners invite some friends with a canine for a visit, the pup is pleased but becomes jealous when his new friend uses his ball and eats from his bowl. He is relieved when the dog returns home, leaving him alone once more but no longer lonely. In Baseball Brothers, Timmy receives a boost to his confidence with help from his older sibling. Edgar Bear makes a mess of himself while trying to make A Present for Mama Bear. Ultimately, the only gift she wants is for him to take a bath-which he gladly does. The books are peopled with multiracial, multiethnic characters and Timmy's baseball team has girls and boys. Unfortunately, while adequate as beginning readers, the stories are ultimately forgettable.

More About the Author

Jean Marzollo was born and raised in Manchester, Connecticut.

She says, "As a child, I loved to read and sew dolls' clothes, one outfit after another. I am a graduate of Manchester High School, the University of Connecticut, and the Harvard Graduate School of Education. After working as a high school English teacher and editor of Scholastic's "Let's Find Out" kindergarten magazine with Carol Devine Carson for 20 years, I began writing children's books. I have written over 130 books, including the award-winning, best-selling I SPY series for children, written completely in rhythm and rhyme. Rhythm and rhyme are like music without the tune; they lure and excite the ear. Children love rhythm and rhyme, and so do I. Do you know that I SPY actually has the same rhythm as "Old Mother Hubbard" and also rap? I treasure the beautiful, intricate photographs by Walter Wick in the I SPY books. When I wrote the first I SPY book, I automatically thought of kindergarten children so everything that I called for was concrete, something a 5-year-old can find. The result is a hunting game that children and grownups can play together successfully. Sometimes children are better than their parents! In recent years I took up painting and have begun to illustrate my own "books on paper" and "books online." You can see them on my website: jeanmarzollo.com. Writing and illustrating picture books today is as much fun as sewing dolls' clothes was when I was in third grade. As soon as I'm done with one book, I'm happily compelled to start the next."

Jean Marzollo lives in Upstate New York.

Jean Marzollo always writes deep, well-written books that have surprising depth and poignancy for children's sports fiction. I believe she co-wrote this with her children, so it has a gentle, simple and relatable story about a young boy trying to concentrate when he's in the outfield. I recommend it.
