Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4-The African-American child introduced in Willimena and the Cookie Money (Hyperion, 2001) is back for another adventure. She has been looking forward to third grade at Harriet Tubman Elementary because she will have the nicest teacher in the school. However, there's been a change, and she is assigned to Mrs. Sweetly, the meanest one. Willimena devises a plan to get her teacher to like her by being as nice as she can be-something that her sister, Tina, who is in fifth grade, disapproves of as false. Willie volunteers to take care of the class pet, a guinea pig, which includes taking him home for the weekend. In a moment of inattention, Lester is lost. After unsuccessfully looking for him, the girl realizes that she is going to have to confess to her teacher and the class. Most children will be able to identify with this story, and the dialogue between Willie and her sister sounds realistic, with the two arguing and then giggling from one minute to the next. Black-and-white pencil illustrations convey the oftentimes-humorous tone of the novel. This satisfying tale with an appealing heroine is a good choice for the easy chapter-book section. And there's always the possibility that Lester will reappear in another installment.

Format: Paperback
Willimena is a typical young girl preparing to launch into the next big step of her life, the third grade. As she prepares for her first day of school she is forced to deal with the taunts of her annoying older sister, but this is just the beginning of her problems. Soon she learns that the teacher she had looked forward to having would not be teaching and she would be in a class with a notoriously mean teacher and to make matters worse, she will be in class with her nemesis, none other than Crawford Mills. As Willimena adapts to her unexpected teacher, she decides that she must make the most of the situation by becoming the most helpful student in her class. But when she is given the responsibility of caring for the class pet, a Peruvian Guinea Pig named Lester, her adventures really begin.
Valerie Wilson Wesley has truly captured the voice of a young girl in this first book in her new series of Willimena's Rule books. Maryn Ross's illustrations add to the story and help readers better envision the characters about which they are reading. Based on the first book, this looks like a promising new series that will captivate young readers and have them looking forward to the next installment featuring more of Willimena's exciting, yet everyday experiences. Wesley is indeed filling a void in African American children's literature with this engaging new series.

It's has been very difficult trying to find books for my twin 8yr old daughters.

I wanted a series of books with the star character being an African American girl just having fun and doing kid stuff. A book that will make them know that reading is fun. This book does just that and more.

I only wish that there were more of them because I already bought them all.

If you're looking for a great chapter book for an African American girl, then author Valerie Wilson Wesley's series of "Willimena Rules" is it.

Also try, Gloria Rising and Gloria's Way by Ann Cameron.

I've purchased each and every book for myself and my 10-year-old niece. Ms. Wesley has truly delivered something special in this precious series.
