PreSchool-Grade 3. Fabulous cowgirl fiction. Sophie can make up rhymes and sing them with heart. But it's too hot for her family to appreciate her talent. She is brushed off by her mom, her sister, her brother, and finally her dad, all of whom are otherwise occupied. And what songs to scorn! "Ducks and geese, they make me sneeze, I have freckles on my knees....My ears are big, my head is small, it doesn't bother me at all....'Cause I'm a cowgirl, Yippee-ky-yo!" When a nighttime thunderstorm arrives, her baby brother can only be soothed by Sophie's singing "louder than thunder, stronger than lightning." Dodds creates a spirited, funny heroine, giving readers a glimpse at what younger times might have been like for Slue-foot Sue and Sally Ann Thunder Ann Whirlwind. Litzinger uses vibrant shades of pink, coral, and green to match Sophie's funky originality. With watercolors, gouache, and pencil, she sketches faces with tiny eyes. The figures resemble a '90s update of Joan Walsh Anglund's folks, but with lots more humor and character. The font used for the songs looks hand-lettered, emphasizing the unique style of the rhymes. This crooner deserves center stage.?Jacqueline Elsner, Athens Regional Library, GA

No one wants to hear Sophie's song until her music assuages her baby brother's fear of a thunderstorm. PW said, "There is upbeat cheer in the country and western laments and droll humor in the illustrations." Ages 5-up.
