PreS—Originally published 25 years ago, this title has a revised text and new illustrations. Toby, a preschooler with flyaway hair, considers the benefits and responsibilities of being big, as well as the frustrations of being small. The mishaps of spilled milk or a wet bed, for instance, are balanced by the joys of helping to wash the car and remembering to return library books. Goffe's line drawings in a pastel palette depict a traditional family of five in a messy home and give a nod to the author's Red Is Best (Annick, 2002) as Toby reads that book. Homey vignettes and errands around town show happy folks. The author and illustrator capture that uncomfortable in-between feeling. Toby rides a tricycle, is afraid of dogs, and gets lost in the grocery store. However, he can read a little, write his name, and open doors for grown-ups. Plenty of children will relate to him.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
