9780375855801: Bad Astrid

Everyone knows a bully like Astrid--she's "the meanest girl you could possibly meet," and she and her family have moved in down the street! She has a bad attitude and thinks nothing of terrorizing tabby cats, trashing tulip beds, or toppling lemonade stands. It's not easy to stay out of Astrid's way. Who has the strength of character to ask her why she's so mean? Not since Bootsie Barker Bites has such a deliciously mischievous character (who gets her comeuppance) been drawn. From the author of Dirtball Pete comes another character you won't soon forget.

About the Author:

EILEEN BRENNAN is the author and illustrator of Dirtball Pete. She studied music and painting. After college she also began exploring new mediums, including writing, animation, and film. Eileen has written for the Nick Jr. television show Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! and continues to write stories for children and adults. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1-A pudgy, long-eared dog moves into the neighborhood and starts terrorizing her neighbor, a smaller, blue-faced pup. Astrid's mean-spirited shenanigans are recounted in bouncy verse littered with some fun vocabulary that occasionally forces the rhyme and does not scan well, but not enough to truly mar this book. "In her bike helmet painted/with a skull and crossbones,/she tore up the sidewalk/like a mini-cyclone." When Bad Astrid gets herself into trouble and her kindhearted neighbor helps her out, they become friends. Dunnick's funny cartoons lighten the mood. Readers will giggle at Astrid flying through the air, underpants showing, while they learn a simple lesson. Libraries that need more titles on bullying should consider purchasing this just-shy-of-didactic look at the mean kid who needs a little love and attention.-Angela J.
