Reviews for Mallory Goes Green!


Booklist Reviews 2010 February #2
After Mallory becomes class representative for the school's Green Fair, she adopts a leadership style that includes issuing tickets to friends and family members who waste energy. Hurt when her classmates reject her plan for their Green Fair project, she gradually realizes that she needs to listen to others' ideas. The first-person story realistically portrays the self-pity, justification, and misery that Mallory endures before she begins to see her actions from a different point of view. Like other books in the Mallory series, this features large type, widely spaced lines, and stylized illustrations. Good chapter-book fare. Copyright 2010 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2010 Fall
When her fourth grade teacher unveils the school's new environmental awareness program, Mallory takes the campaign very seriously. But her classmates have different ideas about how to go green, and Mallory learns lessons about both conservation and compromise. In her thirteenth adventure Mallory is, as always, a realistically flawed, likable heroine whose earnestness will appeal to idealistic young readers. Copyright 2010 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
