9780007463015: Standing in for Lincoln Green

Lincoln Green has a double, someone who looks just like him. Lincoln Green's own mother can't tell the difference between him and You Know Who. With his handy stand-in taking care of all the chores that just can’t wait, Lincoln Green has plenty of time to do the things he wants to do, like drink fizzy sarsparilla and shoot the breeze.   But Lincoln Green’s not the only one who doesn’t like doing things they don't like doing. It's not long before You Know Who has teamed up with Billy the Kid Next Door, which is a lot more fun than doing things for Lincoln Green, that's for sure. And that's when Lincoln Green finds himself in BIG trouble.   From the author of Marshall Armstrong Is New to Our School and The Frank Show comes another visually striking, brilliantly inventive picture book.

Praise for Standing in For Lincoln Green
"Mackintosh uses his fanciful premise to great effect, both as a fun taste of wish fulfillment and as a lesson to all the potential shirkers out there. His art offers distinctive details in the clothes and settings and big-headed, rosy-cheeked warmth in the characters."
Booklist
 
"An imaginative, visually dynamic picture book that playfully touts the advantages and even pleasures of just getting things done."
Kirkus Reviews

"
Budding sophisticates will relish Mackintosh's irony."
Publishers Weekly

"Mackintosh’s voice is engaging, but it’s the look of his pages that will have readers and lap listeners marveling at the variety of perspective, color and composition that make Standing In for Lincoln Green’ such a standout." The New York Times

"Funny and fun, this paean to play and work will have readers cheering for both Lincoln and You Know Who."
School Library Journal

From Publishers Weekly:

Mackintosh (The Frank Show) imagines an autocrat in a 10-gallon hat named Lincoln Green whose obliging double, a boy named You Know Who who lives in the mirror, does all his chores for him, freeing Lincoln to "grab some shuteye, listen to Sagebrush and Dawgies on the radio, and mosey over to Brian and Kenny's place to shoot the breeze." Lincoln Green uses You Know Who shamelessly, sending him off to practice music, mow the lawn, and even sit in the dentist's chair for him. An invitation to form a club with the boy next door wrecks the scheme, as You Know Who discovers that he doesn't have to do what Lincoln Green says. The result: "big trouble. It seems Lincoln Green has done nothing his mom has asked. And it's all because of You Know You." Mackintosh's wonderfully loopy line wanders over the pages, stopping to dwell on items of mechanical interest-toy trains, the dentist's chair, the detritus in Billy's treehouse. Though this complex patchwork of fantasy, fake nostalgia, and fable may baffle more literal-minded children, budding sophisticates will relish Mackintosh's irony. Ages 4-8.
