From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4-In this, Kline's third book about the youngster, Mary Marony wants a Halloween costume that's out of the ordinary and scary, too. She really wants to impress Marvin, a boy in her class who is always teasing her and making fun of her stuttering. She decides she'll be a mummy, but doesn't know where the costume will come from until she accidentally tears her bed sheet. This easy-to-read chapter book has a simple plot but some nice twists. Mary is a resourceful character who takes her speech problem in stride and deals with other challenges in a positive manner. While part of the resolution is pretty pat-Mary wins third prize in an art contest and uses the money to replace the torn sheet-this is nonetheless an appealing story that will be enjoyed year round.

Gr. 2-4. Second-grader Mary Marony (Mary Marony and the Snake, 1992, and Mary Marony Hides Out, 1993) wants to be a mummy for Halloween, but she isn't sure how to obtain a costume. A purchased disguise is out of the question, since family finances are so tight, and Mom is too busy with chef's school to offer any suggestions. When Mary accidentally rips her worn-out white bedsheet, a great idea is born--she tears the sheet into strips and then worries about how to replace it. Eventually, Mom makes time to help, Mary finds a way to buy new bedding, and her mean classmate Marvin stops teasing her about her stuttering. Kline's characters deal with real problems in upbeat, yet believable ways. A speech impediment and lack of money can't be solved in 80 pages, but they don't cripple Mary's life, either. A fine addition to the burgeoning easy-chapter-book genre as well as a popular offering for Halloween. Illustrated with black line drawings.
