Well, once I start something, I may as well finish it. This is a worthy sequel to All About Sam. It's a bit more focused than the last, but then again four/five year olds are more focused than, say, infants. ( )

Cute but far more contrived than the Anastasia books. Sam's voice is pretty authentic, however, and I do like his mom. ( )

Sam loves to create things and receive praise. With his mother's birthday quickly approaching, he decides, since she asked for only homemade gifts, to make her perfume (since her perfume got discontinued). He develops a concoction of her favorite scents such as his dad's smoke smell. He creates this quirky mixture of scents in his room. This story is adorable and shows the innocence of a young boy. This book would be perfect for first or second graders. ( )

Sam's mother has asked for only homemade gifts for her birthday. When Sam hears that her favorite perfume has been discontinued, Sam decides to invent a perfume with all her favorite smells. Sams adventures are believable and humorous. The story also has a comforting warmth. Lowry is a truly versatile author. Her excellence in historical fiction and fantasy won her two Newberys. While this work does not equal Number the Stars or The Giver in greatness, it is a great example of contemporary realistic fiction for young readers. The story is not a necessary addition to collections, but would find a welcome home there. Additionally, this could be a fun read aloud for primary grades. ( )

In the second book of the Sam Krupnik series, Sam tries to make his mother a birthday present, with disastrous results. Young people will be entertained by the antics of Sam. Older readers will admire the author's ability to write in the first person with a true child's voice. This is a good book to read to kids at bedtime. ( )
