Wednesday Kirwan has a knack for delighting beginning readers. Meet Minerva, a doggie who's been very naughty today, as her parents would say. She ripped all the stuffing out of dad's comfiest chair, she peeled off wallpaper, she knocked over the milk, and she even poked her poor brother. But despite all her mischief, no one is paying any attention to her. What does a cute little Boston terrier like Minerva have to do to get noticed?

"Doesn't anyone in the family notice anything about Minerva even when she voices it aloud and even when she does unspeakable things--like pulling strips of wallpaper off the wall, turning over a glass of milk at lunch, and kicking brother Francis's favorite toy down the stairs? Strangely, by the end of a terrible day, she doesn't even feel better. Lucky for Minerva that Dad finds her in the sofa cushion fort. Michele Medlin narrates with a youthful voice, making Minerva's plight all the more poignant. She sets a steady pace and lets the words themselves, rather than her inflection, disclose Minerva's identity. Young listeners will take comfort in Minerva's family situation. A.R.
