About this title


FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. As fifth-grader Bingo Brown strives for the triumphs of today and steels himself against the tribulations of tomorrow, he discovers that he will have to undergo a few more trials and triumphs before growing up.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-- Will Bingo survive the summer, now that the love of his life, Melissa, has moved to Bixby, Okla.? Can he actually produce 36 dinners for his parents to pay off the gigantic phone bill for calls to Bixby? How will he and his dad manage when his mom goes home to her mom with a problem Bingo can't figure out? After he does find out, how will he handle becoming a brother at the advanced age of 12? Most important, can he really teach his pesky neighbor, Wentworth, how to have a successful mixed-sex conversation, while he himself becomes an expert in "the language of love?" In this rollicking sequel to The Burning Questions of Bingo Brown (Viking, 1988), Bingo's parents become major players, and their sympathetic portrayal helps to illuminate Bingo's character as well. The very different reactions of the Browns to the news of the impending birth of Bingo's sibling form the basis of the plot. This is not as serious or gripping a theme as the suicide issue confronting the sixth grade class in the first book, but Bingo's groping steps toward maturity as he accepts and deals with the changes in his family provide a foil for the humorous, often hilarious anecdotes. Byars is at her best when creating believable situations and dialogue for her pre-adolescent character, and the crazy love triangles featuring Bingo at the uncomfortable center are right on target. Bingo is certainly having an eventful summer, and sharing his vacation woes and triumphs will provide pleasurable reading for all seasons. --Martha Rosen, Edgewood School, Scarsdale, N.Y.
