Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5-In this fourth story about the Fraser brothers, third-grader Edward helps his brother Jason's friends with their seventh-grade sex-ed project by drawing faces on the eggs they must care for. The children plan the First Annual Mark Twain Memorial Jumping Frog Contest, and Edward insists on attending a live theater performance for his birthday. Mrs. Fraser is learning to be a clown so that she can entertain hospitalized children. Charley, an overly energetic first grader who is new to the neighborhood, appears in each episode. Readers not familiar with the previous books may find the number of characters hard to keep track of at first. However, the satisfying plot development, humorous characterizations, warm and realistic family interactions, and light mood make this title an appropriate selection for children transitioning into chapter books. Pearson's amusing pen-and-ink illustrations, one per chapter, add appeal.

From Booklist

Gr. 3-5. Although it would be an exaggeration to describe this as a problem novel, Cutler takes on a situation that many kids face. Third-grader Edward Fraser, last heard from in Cutler's Gator Aid (1999), is the object of hero worship when Charlie, a first-grader, arrives in the neighborhood. Charlie is a handful, but Edward almost always treats him with patience and kindness. Much of the book centers on a frog-jumping contest in homage to Mark Twain, which provides plenty of light suspense and comedy. Many middle-graders will see themselves in this novel that evokes the joys of a loving (if slightly eccentric) family and the unpredictability of neighborhood life. Todd Morning
