Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—From the cover, readers get a sense that all is not as idyllic as the teacher's face suggests. The children wear concerned expressions and there are large bites missing from furniture and a math book. What is going on? Rissi's story of a class science project seems ordinary enough, until we notice that Bruno the tadpole looks a lot like a hippopotamus. Suddenly the problem becomes clear. "Everyone could see that Bruno was trouble. Everyone except Mr. Stricter." Ohora's acrylic illustrations work seamlessly with the text to juxtapose the teacher's blind adoration of his pet with the students' increasing alarm. "Bruno wouldn't hurt a…" Mr. Stricter is saying, and readers turn the page to see a single sneaker dangling from Bruno's mouth and a large mustard yellow "GULP!" appears over Bruno's head. Obviously the class was not overreacting when they said Bruno was trouble, but how will they get their teacher back? Fans of stories like Steven Kellogg's The Mysterious Tadpole or Mike Thaler's A Hippopotamus Ate the Teacher will appreciate the saga of a beloved small pet growing out of control. Readers will feel the increasing frustration of the class as the teacher dismisses all their concerns about Bruno and says, "Isn't he adorable?" And those who enjoy some gross humor will love the result of Bruno's sneeze. VERDICT Highly recommended. Perfect for classroom read-alouds and lessons on problem-solving or pets.—Suzanne Costner, Fairview Elementary School, Maryville, TN

Review

★ "Rissi's very funny text is a model of understatement and restraint...allowing OHora to make the most of the story's physical comedy in thickly painted scenes spiked with neon orange. Mr. Stricter is a classic bumbler cut from Amelia Bedelia's cloth, and readers will hope that his class has more oddball tales in store." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
