Elizabeth Levy loves to tell stories that combine serious issues with humor. She has proven it with her award-winning books for young readers, including My Life As A Fifth-Grade Comedian, Keep Ms. Sugarman In The Fourth Grade, and other best-selling books in the Sam and Robert series, including Frankenstein Moved In On The Fourth Floor and Dracula Is A Pain In The Neck. She lives in New York City.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4-Sam and Robert Bamford, from Levy's Frankenstein Moved in on the Fourth Floor (1979) and Dracula Is a Pain in the Neck (1984, both HarperCollins), are back. The boys' eight-year-old cousin, Mabel, has come to New York from San Francisco for a visit. She quickly alienates them with her teasing and her opinions, which are strong- just like one of her favorite foods, Gorgonzola cheese. Introduced to voodooism by a Haitian taxi driver, the boys take Mabel on a tour of Central Park and convince her that the park's statues were once living things, changed to bronze by a zombie with Gorgonzola breath. When someone-or something-smears smelly cheese on the statues, the cousins fearfully search for the culprit. Strong characters and snappy dialogue help compensate for the predictable plot and the questionable use of vandalism to inspire concerned citizens to clean up the park. Ulrich's cover illustration and abundant black-and-white drawings will attract reluctant readers. An upbeat story, vaguely scary, with an ecological message thrown in for good measure.
