About this title


Elliot, who considers himself a "worm," is having the worst summer ever due to his broken arms, his precocious nephew, and his best friend's new neighbor who can swim, play baseball, and has "worm" talents to rival his own--and is a girl. Reprint.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5. Accustomed to all the rights and privileges attendant on the baby of the family, nine-year-old Elliot is feeling more than a little displaced by his four-year-old nephew, Jonathan. All the more so now that his sister is about to give birth to a second child, and Jonathan, who is staying with his grandparents-Elliot's parents-has been elevated to the status of Elliot's tagalong charge. Adding insult to injury, his best friend Goog's loyalties have been compromised by a girl, leaving a vengeful Elliot no recourse but to declare war. Tales of childhood rivalry have a ready-made audience, and this will be no exception. Palatini's characters are credibly and sympathetically drawn, colored by Elliot's sensibilities. Jonathan is a precocious four year old, annoying and endearing. Goog is a best friend worth fighting for, and Corinne is a rival to be reckoned with. Readers may find Elliot a bit of a whiner, his escapades less hilarious and thus less readily engaging than, say, the siblings in Judy Blume's Superfudge (Dutton, 1980) or Lois Lowry's All About Sam (Houghton, 1988). However, his sufferings are real, his attempts at revenge diverting, and his gradual, grudging appreciation of Jonathan?and even Corinne?subtly and realistically developed. Not a groundbreaking book, certainly, but a solid contribution to the genre.?Marcia Hupp, Mamaroneck Public Library, NY
