Review quote

"Ink sketches filled in with splashy watercolors depict a worried, increasingly frazzled Haley as she copes with new challenges in a busy, active classroom. An important book for kids making a pretty tough transition." "Perfect as a read-aloud...a spot-on depiction of teachers helping kids through rough patches." "Rodman's witty take on the harsh realities of first grade, as perceived by those in the trenches, will tickle readers' funny bones.... For young readers approaching this or any other significant transition with trepidation, Rodman's humorous tale serves as a gentle reminder to search for the silver lining." "Rodman handles the turmoil of school transitions with realism and humor. A good jumping-off book for discussions about differences and change."

About Mary Ann Rodman

Mary Ann Rodman always wanted to be a writer, publishing her first story in second grade. Her first desk was the bathroom laundry hamper. She still has the hamper, although she now has a desk and office of her own. Her picture book MY BEST FRIEND won the Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Award and the Charlotte Zolotow Award. A longtime children's librarian, she lives in Georgia with her husband, her daughter (who gives her lots of good story ideas), and her cat and dog. FIRST GRADE STINKS! is Mary Ann's first book for Peachtree. For more information, see
