Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-4–This series kicks off with a spunky introduction to the students at Zelda A. Zigzag School. Mitchell and his sister, Angel, are the new kids. He's not too sure about some of his schoolmates or the Afternoon Center that they attend, but he's sure about one thing: he wants to win a medal on prize day. Mitchell goes on nature walks, swims, paints, and gets homework help at the center, and worries that he may not be Number One at any activity. On prize day, however, he gets a big surprise. In Big Whopper, the Afternoon Center kids set out to list all of their discoveries. Everyone can think of at least something with the exception of Destiny, who, in desperation, makes up a “discovery” about a famous ancestor. Soon, she is in over her head, trying to find her way out of her big whopper of a lie. When Destiny comes clean, she finds out that she is good at making discoveries after all. Readers new to chapter books will love these quick-paced, fun stories. Spot illustrations and a generous font size add to their approachability. It won't take long for the kids of Zelda A. Zigzag School to become favorites.Amanda Moss Struckmeyer, Middleton Public Library, WI

Patricia Reilly Giff's BIG WHOPPER and NUMBER ONE KID provide two new additions to the 'Zigzag Kids' series. BIG WHOPPER tells of Discovery Week at the Zigzag Afternoon Center, during a week where Destiny can't think of anything new to contribute. Her Big whopper gets her into trouble with her peers in this fun tale. NUMBER ONE KID tells of Mitchell, who wants to be Number One at the Zigzag Afternoon Center, where there are lots of activities to choose from. But what if he's the only kid who doesn't get a prize on Prize Day? His discovery of what he can excel at makes for a fun tale.

Format: Paperback
This was totally random and disjointed. I HATED this book and could not wait to get through it. So meandering - one event totally unrelated to the next. How this kind of book gets published I have no idea. Not easy to read and even harder to explain. I have never gotten so upset as to write an amazon review for a kids' book but this one put me over the top. Awful, awful, awful.
