Publishers Weekly
The name is terrifically cheeky, and wood worker (Fannie within the Kitchen) outdoes herself in those mixed-media illustrations. The unnamed heroine, who resembles a pass among Ramona Quimby and Eloise, generates the name checklist because of her free-spirited, rule-breaking notions. "I had an idea 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 sound asleep face. contrary, the boy, sure 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 booklet debut, follows with a litany of forbidden habit encompassing every little thing from now not being allowed to make ice cubes ("I had an concept to freeze a useless fly within the ice dice tray") not to being allowed "to speak (even just a little) approximately beavers anymore" (because she "had an concept that [she] may run away to dwell with the sort and satisfied beavers"). chippie makes use of a fluid, dependent ink line to exhibit a magnificent repertoire of expressions-she's both adept at portraying a playground tattletale and a mother on the finish of her rope. youngsters may be intrigued through the pictures' playful experience of composition in addition to the heroine's brazenness, yet will be stuck off-guard by means of the abrupt end. a while 4-8.

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz
Our mischievous yet pleasant heroine is the type of child who makes mom and dad and academics outdated ahead of their time, yet nonetheless makes us snort. As she describes the 17 issues she's no longer 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, strolling backward all of the method to institution, and dedicating her George Washington file "to all beavers that ever lived." As she maintains placing her principles into motion at domestic, freezing a useless 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" offers extra mischief forward. chippie combines a full of life pen and ink black line with naturalistic shades and electronic media to provide plausible little 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 completed by means of crumpling it and submitting with an emery board; Adobe Photoshop is used to rescan and manage the sort; bits of picture university are extra for a clean visible glance. The glue she is smilingly squeezing from the bottle at the jacket has an enticing three-d quality.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Ingenious artwork-a perfect marriage of electronic imagery and pen-and-ink-is definitely the focal point of this successful identify. In it, an incorrigible little lady lists all of the brilliant rules she's ever had and many 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 pondering draws lots of awareness, it all adverse. wood worker brings intensity and texture to every unfold through adjusting photo-realistic components to scale and embedding them into the paintings. The impact is either amazing and subtle-"real" wooden grain, blades of grass, the chrome-plated information on school room furniture-all are seamlessly built-in round a winsome solid 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 company Information.

Kirkus Reviews
A lass tallies her pranks and resulting punishments during this Judith Viorst-like plaint. truly, "punishments" is just too robust a be aware, as stapling her little brother's hair to his pillow, exhibiting her underpants to classmate Jeremy after which later surroundings his shoe on hearth 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 actual punishments: a faculty detention and an escort domestic through the crossing defend. eventually, while she says the other of what she particularly means-"I'm sorry"-she earns forgiveness. chippie makes use of ink, paint and clipped pictures to create lively scenes that includes a deceptively profitable younger narrator with brief, messy hair and, often, a convinced or boastful expression. a few readers could locate this younger envelope-pusher entertainingly lively, yet there are bound to be people who find themselves going to cringe on the concept of pretending to be sorry and having it paintings.
