9780141502359: Hattie The Bad

Hattie was bad. Really bad. When I say bad, I don't just mean forget-to-tidy-her-room, reading-comics-after-bedtime kind of bad. No, she was so bad, no-one was allowed to play with her. But it's no fun being bad on your own, is it? So, she becomes Hattie the Good. Good Hattie tidies her room and goes to bed early. But nobody likes a goody-two shoes now, do they? In the most hilarious moment in a picture book ever, Hattie rebels in spectacular fashion and reverts to being bad ...for good!

About the Author:

Jane Devlin grew up in Harrow and did a BA in English Literature at Leeds University. She then worked as a primary school teacher in London for many years. 'Hattie the Bad' is her first picture book. Joe Berger has been drawing for as long as he can remember. He has a background in animation and illustrates a weekly comic strip in the Guardian. Joe's first picture book 'Bridget Fidget' was published in 2008.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1—Hattie trumpets such naughtiness as tagging her brother in a yard sale, tying her father's car keys to a helium balloon, and surprising her mother with live frogs in the refrigerator. At first, her unruly behavior wins applause from her peers—until their parents put a stop to their playing together. Then, Hattie decides to be good—even winning a television competition to be "the best behaved child ever." But, a too-good-to-be-true Hattie is not her style either (no one wants to play with her). On the night of the televised award, she shows her true colors by yelling "UNDERPANTS!" and turning a somersault revealing her skull-and-crossbones panties, and finds that mixing bad behavior with a "teensy bit of good" suits her just fine. Cleverly portrayed, Hattie's mischievous actions will surely elicit giggles, and the details provide much to discover and discuss. Berger embellishes his expressive black-line drawings with bright colors, and his illustrations bring a well-considered pace to the story. An eye-catching dust jacket features Hattie, paint bucket and brush in hand, just finished scrawling "Hattie the Bad" in orange paint across the book cover.—Barbara Elleman, Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, MA
