PreS—When Sophie "gets up on the wrong side of the crib" on her second birthday, Mama tries to cheer her up with a new pink dress and Daddy tries to chase the blues away with blueberry pancakes. Her rotten mood persists until Granny says, "Let's hit the road!" and they take a wild ride on Sophie's "Push-Me-Pull-You Motorcycle." A ferocious sabre-toothed tiger suit turns out to be just the thing the youngster needs to tame her temper. Sophie, clad in her "terrible tiger" costume, enjoys cake with her family, and when Granny asks her how old she is, the toddler raises two claws in the air and triumphantly announces, "Terrible Two!" Wells's beloved illustrations and her characteristic wit are pitch-perfect for this humorous family drama. Parents and children alike will be able to identify with Sophie's grumpiness and appreciate that sometimes the only one who can make things better is Granny.—Jenna Boles, Greene County Public Library, Beavercreek, OH
We first met our little mouse protagonist in Time-Out for Sophie (2013) and already know her to be a lovable handful. On the morning of her second birthday, Sophie wakes up on the wrong side of the crib. She rejects her birthday breakfast of blueberry pancakes and dismisses her presents. She is terrible. Gran arrives and takes her on an outing, hoping to tame her savagery, but Sophie persists. She wants nothing to do with the animal sounds and primary colors at the local toy shop. But when Gran suggests a fearsome, fiery sabre-toothed tiger costume, Sophie is delighted and hurries home to terrify her family in style. As she has done before in books like Shy Charles (1988) and Noisy Nora (1997), Wells distills the challenges of the preschool set into a simple, resonant story, with sensitivity and care and a profound understanding of her audience. Sweet scenes on sherbet-colored backgrounds establish a sort of confining cuteness, making Sophie’s grab for independence all the more palpable. Parents and toddlers alike will respond to Sophie’s honest-to-goodness antics. Preschool-Grade 2. --Thom Barthelmess
