Review quote

Praise for "Justin Case: Rules, Tools, and Maybe a Bully" "In his third outing, Justin faces the beginning of fourth grade with his usual trepidation . . . Silly line drawings by Cordell are inserted throughout and do much to lighten the tone and reinforce the humor." --"Booklist"" ""This honest and heartfelt look at elementary school is illustrated with occasional doodles that perfectly suit the book and audience." --"Kidsville News""" Praise for "Justin Case: School, Drool, and Other Daily Disasters" ""Justin Case," the new novel by Rachel Vail, might well be subtitled the wit and wisdom of a third-grade worrywart. By turns droll, sardonic, ironic, and even sophisticated, it chronicles the daily tribulations of life in the third-grade as told by its eponymous hero, who in the course of his school year discovers there is no heroism unless there is fear. And fear Justin has a-plenty, be it of his new dog Qwerty, his new teacher, sports, math, friends, jiggly Jell-O--or whatever--a lot comes his way, real and imagined. The writing is sharp, unpredictably clever, and establishes third-grade as a mine-field of the absurd--which is to say, real life." --Avi, Newbery Medalist "Vail employs easy, direct language in a rhythm and syntax that captures the essence of a charming, lovable and very believable boy. Readers transitioning to longer fiction will groan, sympathize and laugh out loud in delight. Absolutely marvelous." --"Kirkus Reviews," starred review
