Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Antoinette Portis made her picture-book debut with the bestselling Not a Box, which was a New York Times Best Illustrated Book and a Theodore Seuss Geisel Honor Book in 2007. Not a Stick followed, as well as her most recent book, A Penguin Story.

Antoinette graduated from kindergarten with a major in finger painting and a minor in show-and-tell. Later she graduated from the UCLA School of Fine Arts with a degree in studio art (which is like finger painting and show-and-tell combined). Antoinette lives in Los Angeles.

From Booklist

The author-illustrator behind Not a Box (2007) begins this book with another negative—I don't want to go to kindergarten! I only like preschool. But by the end of the story, which covers the month of September, Annalina, the narrator, has settled in, already thinking about first grade. Portis charmingly portrays both the fears Annalina has before starting school (mean and tall kids, a scary teacher with hair like Medusa's snakes) as well as the fun she didn't know would be there. Foremost are friends and their make-believe play on the monkey bars, but there's also writing lessons, show-and-tell, the class' pet tortoise, and her first taste of homework. Although many current kindergartners face more rigorous academic demands from the start, young readers will enjoy seeing elements of their day in Annalina's. Portis' illustrations are a fun mix of the cartoonish and realistic, including lined paper throughout the book and photographic images of certain objects. It's a welcoming world for children who are somewhere in between little kid and big kid. Preschool-Grade 1. --Abby Nolan --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
