Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 1–A story told with gentle innocence. Eddie Longpants is so tall that this book has to be read vertically. (Children are sure to enjoy the unconventional format.) He is taunted every day at recess; the other kids call him giraffe, ostrich neck, and skyscraper. The unusually sweet boy isn't spurred to anger until his mother visits for report-card day and is also ridiculed. However, Eddie and his very tall parents demonstrate the power of charity and compassion--without a hint of saccharine sentimentality or didacticism. This is achieved through the subtle simplicity of language as well as the appealing, folk-art quality of the color-saturated illustrations. There's something timeless about this tall tale. Eddie Longpants is about appreciating differences and, as such, it stands out in a crowd.–Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
