Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2–4—Brandon describes his adventures with his strong-willed and imaginative friend Hannah. Though he'd rather watch TV, he always joins in with her ideas, since she makes him. In this follow-up to A Girl, a Boy, and a Monster Cat (Putnam, 2007), the two have numerous encounters with the Sunderland "triplets" (twins and a very large younger sibling), rambunctious children who seem determined to steal Hannah's cat. Filled with comic moments and realistic escapades, this short chapter book is laugh-out-loud funny. The characters fairly jump off the pages, and readers will feel as though they are with folks from their own neighborhoods. Cepeda's comic-book-style illustrations show a lot of attention to detail. This offering will work well as a read-aloud or for independent readers.—Sharon R. Pearce, Longfellow Elementary School, Oak Park, IL
