Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1–On the title page, five children are introduced and largely identified by the clothes they wear and the objects they hold. Jake is into dinosaurs, Paul carries a paintbrush, and so on. Jess the Pup is there, too. The book works as a guessing game. “Who's been dropping all these peas?/Not me! said Louise.” Clues will delight young listeners, who can study the illustrations for tell-tale signs, such as a dinosaur left on the scene. Then an offstage voice pipes up: Who is going to clean up the mess? At the end, Jess the Pup shows his face and, with a wink, ties things up. The illustrations and typeface will melt hearts and delight and inspire potato-printing young readers. The simple, expressive shapes, mostly in muted tones with dapples of red to keep things cheery, are utterly fresh and warm, and the textures feel organic. Children will delight in this sweet-natured picture book.–Sarah Paulson Yarovoy, American Sign Language and English Lower School PS 347, New York Cityα(c) Copyright 2010.

From Booklist

Making a mess is big fun for toddlers, even if it gets them in trouble. With a simple rhyming text and clear, colorful double-page spreads of kids enjoying—and denying—the trouble they make, this picture book features scenarios that will appeal to young preschoolers. Who’s been making the carpet dirty? ‘Not me!’ said Bertie. Kids will instantly recognize both the mess and the mischief, whether it is spreading muddy tire tracks on the rug, dropping peas under the table, or leaving big handprints on the wall. Killen’s winsome, mixed media art extends the cheerful chaos. Cleaning up is part of the play, as long as the kids do it together, and a final scene shows the children busy with rags, pans, and brushes, restoring order. The wordplay adds to the fun: Bertie rhymes with dirty. Preschool. --Hazel Rochman

Format: Hardcover
Not me is a very charming book that is just perfect for toddlers and young preschoolers. The simple straightforward text and big colorful illustrations are perfect for group sharing . The story consists of a series of questions asking who did things like get the carpet dirty (Not Me, said Bertie), ate all the cake (Not Me, said Jake), or put all the handprints on the wall (Not Me, said Paul). Story audiences will have to be paying attention to see who exactly is in all of these pictures but doesn't say anything until the very end. Kids will appreciate the humor, and the scenes depicting things they get in trouble for too. This is a great choice for groups or for lap sharing. Recommended.
