Publishers Weekly
The identify is terrifically cheeky, and chippie (Fannie within the Kitchen) outdoes herself in those mixed-media illustrations. The unnamed heroine, who resembles a move among Ramona Quimby and Eloise, generates the identify record due to her free-spirited, rule-breaking notions. "I had an concept to staple my brother's hair to his pillow," accompanies a photo-collage photograph of a stapler clamping onto a pillow nook, with a pen-and-ink drawing of the brother's drowsing face. contrary, the boy, certain into his pillowcase, clings to his mom: "I am now not allowed to take advantage of the stapler anymore." Offill (Last issues, for adults), making her children's e-book debut, follows with a litany of forbidden habit encompassing every thing from now not being allowed to make ice cubes ("I had an concept to freeze a lifeless fly within the ice dice tray") not to being allowed "to speak (even somewhat) approximately beavers anymore" (because she "had an concept that [she] may perhaps run away to dwell with the sort and chuffed beavers"). chippie makes use of a fluid, based ink line to show a powerful repertoire of expressions-she's both adept at portraying a playground tattletale and a mother on the finish of her rope. youngsters might be intrigued through the pictures' playful experience of composition in addition to the heroine's brazenness, yet could be stuck off-guard by means of the abrupt end. a long time 4-8.

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz
Our mischievous yet pleasant heroine is the type of child who makes mom and dad and academics previous ahead of their time, yet nonetheless makes us chortle. As she describes the 17 issues she's now not allowed to do from now on, we will see why. between her "great ideas" are stapling her brother's hair to his pillow, gluing his slippers to the ground, jogging backward the entire method to college, and dedicating her George Washington file "to all beavers that ever lived." As she keeps placing her principles into motion at domestic, freezing a lifeless fly within the ice dice tray and ordering dinner from her mom as though she have been a waitress, her mom despairs. they appear to arrive contract with a last hug, yet then even her "I'm sorry" provides extra mischief forward. chippie combines a full of life pen and ink black line with naturalistic colours and electronic media to offer plausible young ones and an impatient instructor within the lecture room; a stern crossing shield; an infuriated brother reacting to a bombardment with cauliflower. The mottled glance of the paper is accomplished through crumpling it and submitting with an emery board; Adobe Photoshop is used to rescan and control the kind; bits of photograph university are extra for a clean visible glance. The glue she is smilingly squeezing from the bottle at the jacket has an enticing third-dimensional quality.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Ingenious artwork-a ideal marriage of electronic imagery and pen-and-ink-is certainly the point of interest of this profitable name. In it, an incorrigible little lady lists the entire brilliant principles she's ever had and some of the methods they've gotten her into hassle. From stapling her brother's hair to his pillow (no extra stapler) to gluing his slippers to the ground (no extra glue), her outside-the-box considering draws lots of realization, it all destructive. wood worker brings intensity and texture to every unfold via adjusting photo-realistic parts to scale and embedding them into the paintings. The influence is either notable and subtle-"real" wooden grain, blades of grass, the chrome-plated info on lecture room furniture-all are seamlessly built-in round a winsome forged of well-drawn characters. a few photo books are overconceptualized, overdesigned, and usually overdone, yet this one is simply approximately picture-perfect.-Catherine Threadgill, Charleston County Public Library, SC Copyright 2006 Reed enterprise Information.

Kirkus Reviews
A lass tallies her pranks and resulting punishments during this Judith Viorst-like plaint. really, "punishments" is simply too powerful a observe, as stapling her little brother's hair to his pillow, displaying her underpants to classmate Jeremy after which later surroundings his shoe on fireplace with a magnifying glass turns out to attract no retribution past instructions to not do it back: "I am now not allowed to take advantage of the glue anymore." a few of her misdemeanors are very humorous: "I am no longer allowed to provide the present of cauliflower anymore." yet a few really earn genuine punishments: a faculty detention and an escort domestic by way of the crossing safeguard. ultimately, while she says the other of what she particularly means-"I'm sorry"-she earns forgiveness. chippie makes use of ink, paint and clipped photographs to create vigorous scenes that includes a deceptively successful younger narrator with brief, messy hair and, frequently, a convinced or boastful expression. a few readers may possibly locate this younger envelope-pusher entertainingly lively, yet there are certain to be those people who are going to recoil on the inspiration of pretending to be sorry and having it paintings.
