About the Author:

Betsy Duffey is the author of numerous books for young readers, including Hey, New Kid!; The Gadget War; The Math Wiz; and Utterly Yours, Booker Jones (all Viking and Puffin). Her books have been Junior Library Guild selections, Crown Award nominees, and have been nominated for state awards in over twenty states including the California Young Reader Medal, the Texas Bluebonnet Award and the Florida Sunshine State Young Reader Award, while having been Parent's Choice and Children's Choice selections. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia.

Janet Wilson is an established and award-winning Canadian author and illustrator of books for young readers. Her presentations are raising awareness of social, environmental, indigenous, economic, and intergenerational injustice, while inspiring and motivating readers to choose actions to make the world better.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Robbie's somewhat overstated aim is to create a new image for himself by taking steps like avoiding his mother's company on the way to the bus stop each morning, trading in his superhero underwear for plain white, and getting jeans. If his goals seem small and unassuming, so is Robbie; and his solutions--in one instance, simply asking his mother for what he wants instead of expecting her to mind-read--are ingenuously on target. But though Duffey is well tuned in to third-grade cool, she includes a stereotypical bully, held back a year and ready to tangle with anyone who looks at him the wrong way; worse, references to coolness and what kind of year Robbie is having are annoyingly repetitious. Nevertheless, modest aspirations mean modest rewards: readers Robbie's age will be glad to find their own concerns on nearly every page. Illustrations not seen. (Fiction. 8-10) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
