KIRKUS REVIEW

Herbie Jones is back—but now he’s in second grade. Kline has turned back the hands of time, and readers can find out all about his early elementary-school years in this offering and its sequel, Herbie Jones and the Second Grade Slippers (ISBN: 0-399-23132-3) for the newest chapter-book readers. Herbie is anxious about his new teacher, but is pleasantly surprised by Mr. Schnellenberger, a tall, big-eared MAN TEACHER. Mr. S quickly captivates his charges with his boat theme, personalized sailor hats and microphones for reading aloud. Not only does Herbie have a new teacher, he has a new friend, Raymond Martin. Things are not always smooth sailing for Herbie, but a quick phone call to his beloved grandfather easily adjusts the rudder. Sunny pen-and-ink illustrations brighten each page and make Herbie Jones’s story easily read by the youngest reader. (Fiction. 5-8)
