Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Caught between Megan, her beautiful and gifted older sister and Rabbit, her stubborn and inquisitive younger sibling, PK longs to preserve the family just as it is. But a new apartment and mysterious changes that seem to be causing shifts in her family relationships threaten the girl's hopes. In the manner of snapshots, the vignettes of PK's patchwork world are captured in brief, disarming chapters. At night PK gives Rabbit a bath, regaling her with the "billions of stories" she finds in the clothes hamper. She pours out confidences to her unusual, two-wheeled friend--Bike. She is a collector of cherry pits and ideas. PK's dreamy and determined character is endearing; her small revelations are the very stuff that growing up is made of. Devastated that a beloved blue armchair will be left behind for the new tenants, PK is cheered when she learns that it will receive an elegant new slipcover and "a brand new start on life"--a metaphor that serves PK's life as well. Rendered in gentle shades of gray, Donahue's illustrations perfectly match Patron's low-key tone. In this quiet, charmingly told narrative album, a girl discovers that moving on does not mean everything gets lost along the way. Ages 8-10.

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4?PK's older sister may be Gifted, but this imaginative almost nine year old has some extraordinary talents of her own. Her storytelling abilities stand in good stead as the family moves to a new apartment, and her artistic touches make the place her own. No maybes?a best.

This book is aimed at the 8-to-10 year old readers. Quite some reviews for this book are from adult readers?

My two daughters (8 years old and 9 years old) love reading, for example, they have no problem in enjoying the 500+ pages of Inkheart. But both of them don't feel this book is fun to read. Actually, they told me this book is kind of boring.

Based on feedbacks from my daughters, I would cautiously recommend this book.

I have 5 children from ages 16 to age 1. This books offers a lot. I gave it to my 7 & 10 year olds as they are able to read and relate to it best. There are so many needs in a family and they are not always able to be met by the parents at all times. The children do need to learn to be self-sufficient in many of their tasks and play. I am a middle child myself and can relate to this book well. It is for 9-12 years olds but I think it can be read by 7-12 years olds depending on the child's skill level. It seems children are so far ahead of themselves in todays' world.

I don't want to spoil any of the details of this book for anyone, so I'll just say that it is a good read for any middle child.

I gave this to my 9 1/2 year old daughter to read. Depending on the book she can be an avid or indifferent reader. In this particular case she read the entire book that afternoon without any poking or prodding from me. She enjoyed the imaginative aspects, such as the secret messages in the laundry and talking to the bike. Did she take a message or learn a life lesson from it? No, probably not but she enjoyed reading and that works for me!

I hesitated to review this book. I didn't find it engaging enough, but I realize there are books I don't care for that nevertheless engage children. Still, I feel that quality children's literature can also engage adults.

Children seem to like two kinds of books: books they can identify with, and books that take them out of their circumstances into another more fascinating world. If a child lives in a single parent home where they face the challenge of caring for siblings, they might be engaged by this book and the creative way the characters cope with their responsibilities. However, if they are not in these circumstances, I'm not sure this book is appealing enough to attract and retain their interest. I found the book difficult to get into, but getting story ideas from the laundry hamper is certainly a creative thought!

I don't recommend this book, but by all means read some other reviews which include the opinions of children before you make up your mind.

I actually found this book quite endearing with the coming to terms of being the middle child. It has a great way of showing children that no matter where they come in the family they are just as special and important as each of their siblings. A great book especially for ages eight to ten, the story focuses on not only the what it's like to be a middle child but also deals with moving from a safe familiar home to a new home because everyone is growing up and with different needs comes the need for more space and privacy. A quite delightful and imaginative book sure to please most any child.

I thought this might be a fun book to read to my GD (almost 8)but didn't get more than half the first chapter read to her when she stopped me. She just found it boring. It has no pictures at all in the text and children like to see a picture from time to time to help them connect with the characters.

I finished reading it but really had to push. There are some charming bits as the three sisters help each other through a move to another home. It might appeal to an older child who is going through problems with a move or with siblings - maybe a 10 year old or so.

This little story is cute because it illustrates the growing pains that middle children (in this case a girl) go through when their older sibling are now "too cool" or grown up to hang out with them, and their younger sibling is still a "baby". I thought the writing was creative but not too fusy. The setting of how a bathroom could provide so many childhood memories rings true for those of us that know that the best childhood memories can come from the simplest places and traditions.

PK, going on nine years old, has responsibilities. She's the middle of three sisters, the "human jam" sandwiched between the gifted Megan, who is twelve, and Rabbit who will be starting kindergarten soon. They live in a small apartment with their mother, who goes to work each evening, and PK's job is to answer all Rabbit's questions and give her a bath each evening.

As a first reaction, I'm torn between happiness that the realities of latch-key kids are being respected in this book, and uneasiness that children cooking for and tending each other should be presented so casually. However I decided that young readers can probably accommodate that sort of issue.

Back to the story; PK's biggest dilemma of the summer is maintaining her inspiration for the stories she tells her little sister during bath time. The stories, according to PK, come from the built-in laundry hamper in the bathroom, flying through a little window into her mind. Since the family is moving to a bigger apartment, PK is worried that she'll lose her storytelling mojo. There are a few other minor dramas, and through it all PK's quest for Life Experience. All's well in the end.

Maybe Yes, Maybe No, Maybe Maybe is aimed at the 8-to-10 year old reader, so I wanted it for my granddaughter who is in that age group. I'm not sure whether to send it to her, since I'm afraid she may find the story a bit thin; possibly the six-year-old might more interested (and, I add braggingly, she could definitely read it for herself). The book seemed to jump into the story a bit abruptly, though it had a stronger finish, I thought.
