Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lincoln Green has a double, someone who looks just like him. Lincoln Green's own mother can't tell the difference between him and You Know Who. With his handy stand-in taking care of all the chores that just canand#8217;t wait, Lincoln Green has plenty of time to do the things he wants to do, like drink fizzy sarsparilla and shoot the breeze.
and#160;
But Lincoln Greenand#8217;s not the only one who doesnand#8217;t like doing things they don't like doing. It's not long before You Know Who has teamed up with Billy the Kid Next Door, which is a lot more fun than doing things for Lincoln Green, that's for sure. And that's when Lincoln Green finds himself in BIG trouble.
and#160;
From the author of Marshall Armstrong Is New to Our School and The Frank Show comes another visually striking, brilliantly inventive picture book.

Praise for Standing in For Lincoln Green

"Mackintosh uses his fanciful premise to great effect, both as a fun taste of wish fulfillment and as a lesson to all the potential shirkers out there. His art offers distinctive details in the clothes and settings and big-headed, rosy-cheeked warmth in the characters."

and#151;Booklist

and#160;

"An imaginative, visually dynamic picture book that playfully touts the advantagesand#151;and even pleasuresand#151;of just getting things done."

and#151;Kirkus Reviews

"Budding sophisticates will relish Mackintosh's irony."

and#151;Publishers Weekly

"Mackintoshand#8217;s voice is engaging, but itand#8217;s the look of his pages that will have readers and#151; and lap listeners and#151; marveling at the variety of perspective, color and composition that make and#145;Standing In for Lincoln Greenand#8217; such a standout."

and#151;The New York Times

"Funny and fun, this paean to playand#150;and workand#150;will have readers cheering for both Lincoln and You Know Who."

and#151;School Library Journal

and#160;

Synopsis:

Full of subtle wordplay and outrageous humor, this full color earlyand#160;reader from Theodor Seuess Geiseland#160;Award-winner Josh Schneider offers a fresh, fun take on bullying and birthdays (and pet elephants).

Synopsis:

Zachariah OHora's distinctive retro art and kid-friendly humor take the stage in this story about accepting and celebrating differences.

Momo is coming to visit, and his cousins are SO excited! But even though Momo is a flying squirrel, he won't fly for his cousins friends. Plus, his games are weird. He can't even play hide and seek right! But when Momo's cousins give his strange ways a chance, they realize that doing things differently can be fun...almost as much fun as making a new friend.

Fans of Peter Brown and Bob Shea will fall in love with Zachariah OHoras bold artwork and hilarious characters.

Synopsis:

Itand#8217;s Danaand#8217;s birthday, so she can do what she likes. And what Dana likes to do is pinch. And call people names. And steal her classmatesand#8217; desserts. You probably know a kid like Dana. What can stop her from being so mean? In this story, itand#8217;s not what you might expect. Because sometimes, it takes a little creativity (and possibly a very large pet) to change a mean kidand#8217;s ways. Five short chapters with comical full-color illustrations offer a fresh, fun take on bullying and birthdays (and pet elephants).

Book Dads, November 30, 2009 (view all comments by Book Dads)
The young boy in this story has an enemy, a number-one enemy, a very best enemy. That enemy is Jeremy Ross, who lives down the street and didn’t invite a certain someone to his birthday party. Luckily, this boy’s dad has a plan for dealing with enemies: bake them an enemy pie. While Dad bakes the enemy pie – sure to be an awful and disgusting thing – according to his secret recipe, he explains his son’s part in the plan. He must spend the entire day playing with Jeremy and even be nice to him. To the surprise of both boys, after a day playing together they are feeling much more friendly. But what will happen when it’s time to serve Jeremy the pie?

Enemy Pie is a book that teaches about conflict resolution and seeing enemies in a new light, without being overbearingly preachy or losing its sense of humor. The clever dad in this story provides his son with a valuable lesson without lecturing to him, and instead arranges matters so that his son can learn on his own. In the same way, sharing this book with children will encourage them to reflect upon the ideas of making friends and making enemies, and consider for themselves the merits of baking an enemy pie.
