Kindergarten-Grade 2--Mean Old Uncle Jack isn't really mean at all. He's that one adult to be found in most family groups who never quite sheds his fondness for childish pranks and roughhousing, tousling his nieces' and nephews' hair, buttering their noses at the table, tickling them into hysteria, or squirting them with the garden hose. In the background, the more mature adults look on indulgently, remarking that "Jack is the biggest kid of the bunch." It all makes for a cheerful read, with softly colored, somewhat hazy illustrations that capture the comfortable pleasures of an old-fashioned family picnic. --Joan McGrath, Education Centre Library, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
