Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this second comic tale about energetic pig Cornelius P. Mud, he goes through his morning routine preparing for school. His mother calls questions, such as "Are you up?" from another room, and Cornelius truthfully answers "yes" to each. The illustration for that particular question shows Cornelius floating upside down attached to a bunch of balloons. Has Cornelius made his bed? Yep, he's made it look like an elephant, and he's put his clothes on—the goldfish bowl. But when asked if he's ready for school, the answer is a resounding "NO!" The missing step is a kiss, readily supplied to Cornelius by his mother before he boards the bus for Clown School. It's easy to follow the action, since Cornelius and his props fill each large double-page spread and clearly stand out against brightly colored, uncluttered backdrops. The cheerful colors and Cornelius' lively antics make his world the happy-go-lucky kind of place that children enjoy visiting. Enos, Randall

From the Publisher

Kids who aim to do things their way -- and what child doesn't? -- will squeal with pleasure at Cornelius's merry morning mayhem.

My review as an elementary school counselor:

At the beginning of the year I really look forward to working with kindergartners. It's a whole new world as a student and being in a classroom all day long. Just getting up in the morning and getting to school might be a challenge. This is a great read on morning routine! After I read through this one I knew exactly how I wanted to use it. I want to tell them GOOD JOB for getting to school! GOOD JOB for following mom and dad's directions! GOOD JOB for getting ready to be a student! This is a neat way to introduce responsibility, following directions, and completing tasks. Hey, in my opinion they did that the moment they got out of bed and got going! This will be a quick read but I found it enjoyable and relateable for kids. I'm also looking forward to adding this to my parent recommendations for incoming kindergarten kiddos who are having difficulty getting to school. Maybe this could help!
