About this title


Simon expresses his own sad feelings about moving by crediting them to his toddler sister, Maggie

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3 Simon, his mother, and his little sister Maggie are moving, and Simon expresses his wariness and uncertainty by projecting it all onto toddler Maggie, who has no idea what's going on. Simon doesn't want to lose his familiar playground, sympathetic teacher, or his old house. With Maggie in tow, smilingly seated in a red wagon, Simon tries running away to his friend Billy's mother, but his own mother finds them and is reassuring and understanding. The family takes a tour of the new neighborhood, and Simon discovers that he likes the country park, and especially his new teacher, Mr. Paul. Clever Mom gives Simon the option of staying in the old house, but Simon decides Maggie is ready for the move after all. Schwartz' pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations perfectly complement the deft and witty text. The prickly stucco houses and the plethora of pastel buildings evoke southern California, while stringy Simon, his equally lean mother, and rounded Maggie are refreshingly expressive. Purchasing Maggie. . .the perfect move. Leda Schubert, Vermont Department of Education, Montpelier
