PreSchool-Grade 2–This sweet, entertaining story features young Oscar as an incorrigible daydreamer who drives his parents to distraction. It is his job to distribute the notices for a weekly picnic throughout the neighborhood, ensuring that everyone knows what to bring. Of course, Oscar is too busy dreaming to remember this important chore. When he realizes the pickle he's in, Super Oscar springs into action. Using all of his athletic skill and energy, he speeds through the town, picking up groceries, preparing dishes, and even enlisting some friends to provide the music. By the time his family and friends show up for the festivities, all is ready. After his exertions and triumphs (including a victory at the empanada-eating contest), the boy falls asleep under the table, free once again to dream. The acrylic illustrations are dynamic and detailed, often incorporating photograph collages of different food items. Both the English and Spanish texts are fluid. A note to parents suggests exercises that will help children be as fit as young Oscar. A worthy addition to any collection.
