Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-The Know-Nothings are back for more wacky fun. In the first title, Boris, Morris, Norris, and Doris try to celebrate Halloween, but misunderstandings turn ordinary events into humorous escapades. They never do find "Bob" of "bob for apples" fame, and the best trick they can muster is for Floris the dog to stand on four legs. Their misadventures continue in the second book as they plan a parade and dinner in honor of Thanksgiving. Children will especially enjoy the foursome's attempts to catch a wild turkey by acting wild themselves as well as their unsuccessful attempts to "serve" it. The large print and simple texts are just right for new readers and the three short chapters in each book are perfectly paced with action and humor. The cartoonlike illustrations suit the foolish friends' zany antics. Filled with the silliness that many youngsters love, these easy-readers will serve as additional holiday fare.

From Booklist

Gr. 1-2. Boris, Norris, Doris, and Morris (and, of course, the dog, Floris) don't know much, "but they [know] they're friends." In these comical holiday entries in the I Can Read series, the friends show just how goofy they really are. In Talk Turkey , the better of the two books, the friends decide to "serve a turkey for Thanksgiving," so the bird becomes the guest of honor. In Halloween , the buddies learn some tricks and scare themselves. A portrait gallery at the beginning of each book will help new readers keep the characters straight as the conversations heat up and the slapstick begins. Most kids will get the wordplay, the sentence structure is pleasantly uncomplicated, and there's an abundance of action words and sound repetition to enliven the goings-on and make reading them easier. R. W. Alley's cartoon-style artwork adds a layer of inspired mayhem. Stephanie Zvirin
