KIRKUS REVIEW

Dewey loves books of all kinds. He’s so excited about book fair day, he gets up before the sun rises and walks to school. (There won’t be room for his purchases on the bus; he takes a wagon.) Dewey is horrified to find that his class will be the last to visit the book fair. He’s certain everything will be gone. He tries three times to sneak down to the library to shop, but Mrs. Shepherd catches him every time. When the class finally gets there, Dewey spends so much time helping his friends find the right books, that everything is sold . . . except for the box of books the librarian was saving for him. Plourde and Wickstrom’s fourth story about Mrs. Shepherd’s class is not the funniest or most inventive, but young bibliophiles will enjoy reading about this kindred spirit. Wickstrom’s smiling, spindly-legged watercolors of a multicultural classroom are a big plus. (Picture book. 4-8)
