AMY SAID by Martin Waddell


Email this review


Two preschoolers get into horrendous but perfectly realistic mischief, including swinging on Gran's curtains, drawing on the walls, and picking all Gran's flowers--until Gran (whose patience is more than exemplary) finally says, ""NO MORE! Please,"" and the kids go peacefully to bed. Voake sketches the miscreants with a delicate innocence that comically belies their antics--a gentle reminder that little children, however naughty, are indeed innocent at heart. Less irrepressible children will regard the many pranks with delighted disapproval, glorying in their own rectitude. A funny and (one hopes) effective lesson by negative example.
