About this title


A small boy is asked by his mother to be a good big boy while she goes out. While he is wishing that he could be a bad small boy, a wishing pill drops into his drink and he becomes just that, and wreaks havoc around the house. This book is meant to teach children the actual meaning of expressions.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- A young boy is told to be ``a Good Big Boy'' while his mother goes shopping. A bird appears at the window, flies in, and drops a magic pill into the boy's juice. ``I wish I was a Bad Small Boy,'' he says crossly and his wish is granted. The tiny lad becomes not only naughty, but downright destructive. He tortures the cat, dumps flour on the houseplants, and smashes all of the eggs. Sipping more juice enables him to become Big and Bad before finally being restored to his original size. This fantasy is only partially successful. The writing style is halting and flat. It lacks that spark of joyful creativity that distinguishes a good story from a mediocre one. Also, it is difficult to have any empathy for such a spiteful character. Watercolor cartoons are energetic, but uneven. Some of the faces are expressive and amusingly rendered, but the figures are often awkwardly posed. --Alexandra Marris, Rochester Public Library, NY
