More About the Author

Lynn Plourde is the author of numerous kids' books. Most are funny, but some will make you cry. She's a word-player: highfalutin fidgeting, fiddling, fuddling, and foopling. She even makes up words: shmuffle, rizzle, and puckery-smuckery. She's written about those who inspire: a biography of Margaret Chase Smith and a graphic novel about Donn Fendler and his miraculous survival saga. She's a teaching author who has done hundreds of visits to schools where she shares her books interactively, acts some out as plays, and teaches writing mini-lessons (i.e. copycat stories, problem stories, character stories, fables, graphic novel scenes). Having worked more than two decades as a speech-language therapist, Lynn utilizes the knowledge of sounds and instructional skills she gained from that earlier profession in her career as a kids' book author. Lynn is a native Mainer who frequently uses her home state as inspiration when writing about moose, muddy ruds, the four seasons, Mount Katahdin, and being "at one" with nature. She lives in Winthrop, Maine, with her husband. You can learn more about her at her website: www.lynnplourde.com

The story is a bit silly, but with a positive message in the end. My Kindergartner loves the story and the illustrations.

0 of 1 people found the following review helpful By M. Jordan on December 9, 2013
Format: Hardcover
I really hope the other books in this series are different from this one. This follows a class as they set up for a science fair. The main character is Ima Kindanozee. And she is very nozy.

I suppose this book is trying to be fun, with Ima asking questions about the various projects. But she inevitably destroys her class mates work, and the teacher does nothing but say "My my, that project (insert here anything but a corrective or administrative remark about boundaries, or even acknowledging the obvious hard work Ima just destroyed)."

And this is what makes me really not like this book at all. Ima keeps on destroying things. The artist shows anger from the other kids at lost projects, or even fear as one project shoots out the window, and this kid is left to keep on ruining others day and the teacher just tells some students with ruined work that their projects could use some finishing touches.

At the end, Ima is seemingly congratulated as she walks around with the principle asking more questions about the projects. I suppose this part is trying to show Imas' contribution to the fair, her curiosity and good observations about what each of the other projects do, or did.
