Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-In this eighth book in the series, Lionel first worries that his teacher and his parents will share secrets about him at Back-to-School Night and makes sure they never get a chance to talk. In the second chapter, the boy becomes a helpful friend to a new classmate, but cautions, "-if you want to try any mystery meat at lunch-You're on your own." In another episode, his older sister begins to ignore him at school, and Lionel decides that aliens must have taken over her brain. He and his friend Jeffrey use water guns to block the alien signals and jar her memory. In the final chapter, Lionel realizes that time passes much faster during recess than in the classroom and decides to do something about it. This solid addition to the series presents common childhood concerns with humor. Natti's colorful cartoons, rendered in pencil, colored pencils, and watercolor washes, depict a realistic school setting. An appealing title for independent readers or as a class read-aloud.

From Booklist

Gr. K-2. This entry in the Dial Easy-to-Read series has four new stories about Lionel, focusing this time on school. Krensky's touch is light; he leaves space for readers to fill in details from their own experience. The accompanying pencil-and-watercolor pictures are warm and expressive. Some of the situations are subtle, even though they're told with lots of laughs. The best story, "Keeping Secrets," is about privacy, how a child can be a different person at home and at school. Lionel's parents know things about him that his teacher doesn't know and vice versa, and Lionel works hard to keep it that way. Another story, "The Stranger," also connects school and home: why does Lionel's older sister pretend not to know him when she's in the schoolyard with her friends? There's an uncomfortable insight here that's not often confronted in children's stories. Hazel Rochman
