Is it possible for a few words and squiggles to convey both humor and emotion? Jules Feiffer’s seamless blend of scribbled text and cartoon art captures every nuance of the young heroine’s feelings. The reader stays in complete sympathy with the little girl even when she’s pouting. Adults can expect their kids to squeal with delight at the girl’s all-too-recognizable antics.
Rarely do text and pictures work together this perfectly. But in the hands of a master, the tiniest curlicue carries a tremendous freight of character, hilarity, and poignancy. It’s a good thing this book is so much fun for adults, because their children will want to hear it again and again. And while kids point and laugh at the little girl’s ever-changing expressions and the havoc she makes of the house, parents and grandparents will smile in recognition of Feiffer’s wise insights into young children. 37 pages.
