Scooter

In her newest work, Caldecott Honor writer Williams ("More, More, More," Said the Baby; A Chair for My Mother) strings together a series of short vignettes to form a bouncy novel about a woman's adjustment to her moms and dads' divorce. Elana Rose Rosen and her mother relocate to a home in a big city housing project where "Lanny" spends the summertime making good friends and practicing her favorite scooter tricks. She satisfies a virtual smorgasbord of kids and kindly next-door neighbors and forms a special accessory to a young boy called Petey who doesn't speak. Elana blossoms in her brand-new environment with only a minimum variety of temper tantrums or unfortunate thoughts about her now-fractured household. The end-of-summer and end-of-novel Borough-Wide Field Day offers celebration for all the characters to let their skills shine. Though the period in which Lanny's adventures happen is never ever specified, many details suggest a setting of a couple of decades ago; happily, the story's universal styles and circumstances never ever appear dated. Feisty Elana's sincere voice supercharges the first-person narrative. Inventive hand-lettered acrostics open each chapter of this oversize book, and a smattering of dishes and black-and-white spot illustrations provide an air of childlike authenticity to the account. Williams announces her versatility with this pleasing project. Ages 8-up.
P.S.: that inspired me to buy kick scooters for my kids after reading several reviews.
