Publisher's Weekly Review

Keith Baker's reptile couple returns for More Mr. and Mrs. Green, formatted as a beginning reader. Like its predecessor, their lives unfold in a three-chapter format, including Mrs. Green's less-than-lucky day fishing, her latest avant-garde portrait of Mr. Green and an eventful day at the park. Baker's illustrations bring verdant vivacity to the duo's rich lives. Also Meet Mr. and Mrs. Green has been reformatted as a beginning reader in both hardcover and paperback.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-The affable alligators who made their debut in Meet Mr. and Mrs. Green (Harcourt, 2002) are back with three brand-new adventures. On a fishing trip, Mrs. Green is discouraged because she isn't catching anything, until she learns that her husband has a secret bait-jellybeans. Next, Mr. Green is proud to be the model for his wife's Picasso-like portrait. Finally, a park proves to be the perfect place for both of them; after an enjoyable day, they decide that spaghetti with mashed potatoes makes a perfect follow-up to an ice-cream snack. Baker's palette features many bright colors, but the vibrant, green alligators take center stage on every page. Simple number concepts and translations of French words are seamlessly woven into the story. This easy-reader with a more sophisticated, chapter-book appearance will appeal to children familiar with Barbara Baker's "Digby and Kate" books (Dutton) and Denys Cazet's "Minnie and Moo" series (HarperCollins). With their zest for life and kind regard for one another, the endearing Mr. and Mrs. Green are sure to acquire more and more fans among newly independent readers.-Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT (c) Copyright 2010.
