About this title


What new set of rules does Willimena live by in this adventure? Well, summer's over, and Willie is finally about to enter the third grade. Things are looking pretty rosy until she learns that Mrs. Sweetly-who's anything but sweet-is going to be her teacher for the whole year. Not to be daunted, Willie wonders how she can make a good impression on the "sinister" Mrs. Sweetly. And, as Willie soon finds out, the first rule to losing your class pet (and impressing your teacher) is to "volunteer to bring your class pet home." Rule #2? "Make sure you look away while cleaning his cage in your backyard". And so, when Lester, the third grade's beloved floppy-eared guinea pig makes a break for it, Willimena's rules are about to change.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-The African-American child introduced in Willimena and the Cookie Money (Hyperion, 2001) is back for another adventure. She has been looking forward to third grade at Harriet Tubman Elementary because she will have the nicest teacher in the school. However, there's been a change, and she is assigned to Mrs. Sweetly, the meanest one. Willimena devises a plan to get her teacher to like her by being as nice as she can be-something that her sister, Tina, who is in fifth grade, disapproves of as false. Willie volunteers to take care of the class pet, a guinea pig, which includes taking him home for the weekend. In a moment of inattention, Lester is lost. After unsuccessfully looking for him, the girl realizes that she is going to have to confess to her teacher and the class. Most children will be able to identify with this story, and the dialogue between Willie and her sister sounds realistic, with the two arguing and then giggling from one minute to the next. Black-and-white pencil illustrations convey the oftentimes-humorous tone of the novel. This satisfying tale with an appealing heroine is a good choice for the easy chapter-book section. And there's always the possibility that Lester will reappear in another installment.
