Philippa J Stevens is the author of several nonfiction books for children.From School Library Journal:
Lunn's patterned and rhyming text presents 24 statements similar to the title sentence. Some of the relationships may elude some readers, but Dunnington's realistically rendered illustrations will assist those who need a little boost. The rhyming element is most effective on the pages in which both sentences share a double-page spread. Steven's text for Bonk! Goes the Ball is considerably less effective because of its stilted sentence structure and partial phrases. The chief character is a pigtailed soccer player who misses the ball, kicks it, chases it, etc. The text is comprised of disjointed sentences that actually hinder reading comprehension. An obvious attempt to provide a multicultural representation has resulted in stereotypical illustrations that are less than successful. Even those libraries in need of material for early readers will want to pass this fragmented text. The Lunn title is an acceptable additional purchase. --Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA
