With these skinny Js it's hard for me to tell whether they're okay or not because there's not much story there! I will skim through it again with a more critical eye. Anybody have any skinny-book evaluative criteria to share? ( )

Very cute, short chapter book about an 8 year old girl named Cleo who has a very unusual Saturday. It was appealing to my son and 2 daughters. ( )

Age Appropriatness: primary
This book is a good example of contemporary realistic fiction because it is a story of Cleo getting stiches after a toy shelf falls on top of her.
The character Cleo is a round and dynamic character because the author gives us a lot more information about her and her family and her thoughts.
The media in this book is pencil.

Uh-oh Cleo by Jessica Harper was a cute story about a girl who has to get stitches. I liked this one because Cleo, the main character, has a great imagination. She tells the story in a cute, funny way and she puts in details about how she talks to her dolls and how she gets along with her brother and sister and the rest of the family. There weren’t a lot of illustrations, just black and white drawings, but they did go along with the story and helped you to picture Cleo and her family. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399246711, Hardcover)

Saturdays are usually nothing but fun in the Small household. Cleo and her twin brother, Jack, always play games, torture their older sister, and then bike to the best Candy store in town. But this Saturday is different. Jack decided to Spider-Man up the toy shelf and made the whole thing tip over. And one of the things that flew off hit Cleo in the head, making her bleed and everything. As her mom sings:

“Your story’s kinda gory, but it has a moral, which is:
Beware a day that starts out normal. It might end in stitches!”

Cleo’s unique voice and lively narration will pull chapter book readers into her amusing stories of life in a big family that has many uh-oh moments.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:15:10 -0400)

What starts out as a perfectly ordinary day in the Small house turns into Stiches Saturday when Cleo gets a cut on the head after her twin brother, Jack, accidentally pulls down their "Toy House."
