The World According to Kaley

From Booklist
Gr. 3-5. Fourth-grader Kaley's world unfolds in a series of lengthy, heavily embroidered essays written for her World History class and the brief notes from her teacher, Mr. Serrano, that accompany the graded papers. Kaley's approach to her work is imaginative rather than informative, often fictional rather than factual, and frequently funny. Between the lines of "history," readers learn of Kaley's mother's pregnancy, of Kaley's disappointment when she learns that the baby is a boy, and of her concern when the baby is hospitalized with an infection. The light, breezy writing style will suit kids who love the first-person voice of the Marissa Moss' Amelia's Notebook series but want something that looks more like a chapter book. Kaley's line drawings appear on some of the pages, but these small, black-and-white...

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2-Fed up with diapers and baby food, an intrepid infant named Chance takes to the road. The baby spends time with a bear in the mountains, monkeys at the zoo, sea lions in the ocean, and animals in the desert, remembering to write Ma and Pa about these adventures. Each creature teaches Chance a new set of skills, but also makes the youngster think about home and family. As Chance's first birthday approaches, the child's homesickness grows. When Ma promises a birthday cake with peppermint sprinkles, the tot heads back to the farm. Chance narrates this whimsical tall tale in a first-person country vernacular, and the clever language reads aloud well. Done in chalk pastels and colored pencils, the double-page illustrations are the best part of the book and reflect the open vistas and rich sunny...

From School Library Journal
Grade 2-3-These stories have short sentences and brief, episodic chapters. Brisson's is the better of the two, clearly showing the sometimes difficult yet loving relationship between two sisters, as the older one goes from being bossy to kind and the younger one overcomes her fears and gets in her own teasing. The characters are real, the language is accessible, and the simple black-and-white illustrations bring the two girls to life. Milly, a cat, and Tug, a mouse, also exemplify the difficulties of getting along with others. They compete in a spelling bee, practice a play, tell stories, and write a book describing how they met. The characters and their childlike actions will appeal to young readers and the pen-and-ink illustrations enhance the story. Unfortunately, the text is a bit saccharine and the...

From School Library Journal
Grade 4-6–This anthology features a range of stories from mysteries and time travel to ghosts and the paranormal. Peter Lerangis's Loser is a funny story about a kid who finds everything he's ever lost. Heidi E. Y. Stemple and Jane Yolen's Max, the Hand, and Me is a traditional, hair-raising mystery. Will Weaver's Marked for Death is a deeply affecting story. While some selections are more artfully crafted than others, each has its own strength, and the collection as a whole is engaging and readable.–Adrienne Furness, Webster Public Library, NY Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
