School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Goldie speaks right to children, informing them of all of her baby brother's shortcomings. Nicholas can't make beautiful pictures, dress himself, or read books. Contrary to her narrative, the illustrations reveal that the siblings actually have quite a bit in common. For instance, when Goldie announces that Nicholas cannot use a fork and spoon and therefore is a messy eater, the illustrations show a very untidy little girl as she slurps spaghetti and spills her milk. Listeners will enjoy poring over the pictures and discovering the similarities. The narrative is conversational and engaging. The clever design sets large print and bright, cartoon art against a clean white background. Palatini captures the activity of the narrative through the energetic illustrations, which have a life all their own. The humor is right on target for young children, who will howl with laughter when they realize the inevitable outcome of Nicholas's snack of a blue crayon. In the spirit of Kevin Henkes's "Lilly," Goldie is an endearing protagonist with plenty of chutzpah.-Shawn Brommer, Southern Tier Library System, Painted Post, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
