Books by Christine M. Schneider

CHILDREN'S
Released: Sept. 1, 2002

"The energy of the jazz musicians and dancers who've come to life in the radio is contagious, however, and the bouncy rhyme may help to perk up a dull day. (Picture book. 4-8)"

PICKY MRS. PICKLE by Christine M. Schneider
Released: Sept. 1, 1999

"The rhymed text is a little clunky and its message isn't for the subtle, but the pictures, with their acid greens and exaggerated gestural figures, have charm; children will see themselves in Mrs. Pickle's picky habits, and have a good laugh. (Picture book. 5-8)"
PLB 0-8027-8703-7 Mrs. Pickle is definitely a vision: she's rather pickle-shaped herself; is always dressed in her favorite color, green; has the tight orange curls of Lucille Ball; and plays fast and loose with some pickle-green eyeshadow. Read full book review >
