I am a 7 year old student in first grade. My favorite hobby is reading. My class Skyped with Margot Finke. We had a lot of fun! I read her book “Daisy and Bartholomew Q” and it was gloriously awesome! I liked when Daisy met the Glo-balls. I learned new vocabulary like “phantasmagorical”, “pancaked”, and “transplant” that were new for me. I learned about a thesaurus which will help with my writing. Daisy learned that big words could be fun. I love learning new words too. The characters had a lot of emotions that were exciting to read about. The black crow was the scariest character. I can’t wait to read more of her books!
Daisy Fowler dreads opening the thesaurus, which is required for her latest English assignment, to write a garden essay with new and exciting words. She procrastinates until she just has only one night before her essay is due. At close to the very last moment, a green, wormlike creature comes to her rescue in the personage of one Bartholomew Q. Bookworm. He takes her to Word World, where she starts spouting larger and more descriptive words than she normally uses. Bartholomew helps her find the new and colorful adjectives, nouns, and verbs she’ll need to write an “A” worthy essay.
I haven’t touched upon the strange and wonderful creatures in Word World, brought to life by artist Ioana Zdralea. The Featherbutt bird, the Dynoroar, the Oogledork, are but a few of the creatures Daisy meets. They help make the story fun and exciting as it turns into a wild adventure—one that will have readers on the edge of their seats wondering and worrying. Will Daisy make it out of her dangerous predicament in one piece? Will she make it home in time to write her garden essay? You’ll have to read the story to find out what happens.
The book includes lots of words for young writers to look up in their own thesauruses. “Daisy and Bartholomew Q.” is a fun, imaginative adventure. It is highly recommended.
Daisy’s essay is due tomorrow and the teacher said the students have to use a thesaurus. Daisy has a problem using a thesaurus, so what’s a girl to do? Enter a bright Green Worm named Bartholomew Q. Bookworm (of course, what else could his name be?) to the rescue, and almost anything can happen and does. From the time he appears to help Daisy, there’s never a dull moment. The author has created delightful characters that will have young readers giggling and turning pages to see what happens next. Along the way, the readers just might learn a few new words, right along with Daisy, as they together, discover the magic of a thesaurus.
Cute black-and-white illustrations by Illustrator Ioana Zdralea add a whimsical touch to the story. The question is, will Daisy complete her essay in time? Only Daisy and Bartholomew Q. know, and those who read Daisy’s story.
DAISY AND BARTHOLOMEW Q. would make a great addition to school libraries, school classrooms where the teacher and students can read the book together, public libraries, and of course your own personal library.
The author provided me with a PDF of the book for my honest review.
Margot Finke is a word master, using her lyrical writing style and ingenious imagination to put together this marvelous story that tweens will enjoy for a long time. This is a goldmine of a book for teachers as well, as students are introduced to the power of words through the online resource that is provided in the Kindle version. Just click on the word and the New Oxford American Dictionary definition pops up. What better way to introduce the magnificent world of vocabulary to students? This teacher highly recommends “Daisy and Bartholomew Q”, one of Margot’s many brilliant masterpieces. I look forward to sharing it with my students this year!
