Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-When Ms. Shepherd announces that a new girl is coming to school the next day, twin pups Morgie and Moffie and the other students immediately begin to plan a swirl of welcoming activities. When Carole Anne arrives, she will not smile, is unreceptive to friendly gestures, and shows no respect for her classmates. Disappointed and frustrated, the children devise a plan to combat this bully. One day when Morgie finds her alone, he discovers the reason for her hostility. This is an excellent book to teach conflict resolution, dealing with bullies, and making friends. DePaola successfully captures the world of primary school with his colorful, yet soft acrylic paintings on handmade watercolor paper. He also effectively conveys the emotions of a new student on her first day. Pair this title with Meet the Barkers (Putnam, 2001).

From Booklist

K-Gr. 2. Those adorable twins--anthropomorphized Welsh terriers Morgan and Moffat--deftly handle a common crisis of early childhood when a mean new kid comes to class. The children feel rebuffed and hurt when Carole Anne pushes them, pulls hair ribbons, and throws Morgie's Welcome card on the floor. Then Morgie finds Carole Anne crying one Saturday. He discovers that she has changed schools frequently, and she admits taking her hostility out on her classmates. Morgie, Moffie, and their classmates hear Carole Anne out, and things are rosy again. When Carole Anne offers her mea culpa, the message becomes a little heavy-handed, but the twins, their adopted little brother, Marcos, and their parents form a reassuring family unit, and dePaola's signature summer colors and vivid figures support the tale.

More About the Author

"Tomie dePaola was born in Meriden, Connecticut, in 1934 to a family of Irish and Italian background. By the time he could hold a pencil, he knew what his life's work would be. His determination to create books for children led to a BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and an MFA from the California College of Arts & Crafts in Oakland, California.
It drove him through the years of teaching, designing greeting cards and stage sets, and painting church murals until 1965, when he illustrated his first children's book, Sound, by Lisa Miller for Coward-McCann. Eventually, freed of other obligations, he plunged full time into both writing and illustrating children's books.
He names Fra Angelico and Giotto, Georges Rouault, and Ben Shahn as major influences on his work, but he soon found his own unique style. His particular way with color, line, detail, and design have earned him many of the most prestigious awards in his field, among them a Caldecott Honor Award for Strega Nona, the Smithsonian Medal from the Smithsonian Institution, the Kerlan Award from the University of Minnesota for his ""singular attainment in children's literature,"" the Catholic Library Association's Regina Medal for his ""continued distinguished contribution,"" and the University of Southern Mississippi Medallion. He was also the 1990 United States nominee for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for illustration.
Tomie dePaola has published almost 200 children's books in fifteen different countries. He remains one of the most popular creators of books for children, receiving more than 100,000 fan letters each year.
Tomie lives in an interesting house in New Hampshire with his four dogs. His studio is in a large renovated 200-year-old barn.
- He has been published for over 30 years.
- Over 5 million copies of his books have sold worldwide.
- His books have been published in over 15 different countries.
- He receives nearly 100,000 fan letters each year.
Tomie dePaola has received virtually every significant recognition for his books in the children's book world, including:
- Caldecott Honor Award from American Library Association
- Newbery Honor Award from American Library Association
- Smithson Medal from Smithsonian Institution
- USA nominee in illustration for Hans Christian Andersen Medal
- Regina Medal from Catholic Library Association

Format: Hardcover
Morgie and Mollie are excited about the new student to join their class, but Carole Anne is anything but friendly: she seems determined to cause trouble and makes it impossible for anyone to like her. With all the hostility she's creating in class, it's no wonder nobody wants to continue the effort to be her friend. Trouble In The Barker's Class is a realistic story of a new girl's struggle to be accepted.

Wow, this book is a find! It is the story of Morgie and Moffie, twins, who have a new student join their class. She is a bully and it disrupts their class completely. Kinders and 1st graders loved this book when I read it to them. They were in rapture. Oh, I wish I could find more books like this. Write more, Tomie DePaola!! Great Book!!!

Format: Paperback
Any children's book that includes a character saying "get it yourself, stupid" has no place in my household. I'm trying to raise polite children and listening to stories with that kind of language does not meet my standards.
