Description

In Norton Juster's brilliant sequel to Caldecott winner The Hello, Goodbye Window, Nanna and Poppy never quite know who will show up for a visit-Sourpuss or Sweetie Pie. In a heartbeat, their precious granddaughter can change from a pure joy to a real grouch. One moment she's kind and cooperative, and the next she's stubborn and mean. And when she lies down to sleep as Sweetie Pie, her grandparents wonder what she'll be like when she wakes up. But Nanna and Poppy will love her, no matter what.

Professional reviews

"This little gem captures the mercurial mood swings of a young child who spends time with her long-suffering but tolerant grandparents, Nanna and Poppy. Narrator Michele Medlin flawlessly portrays the main character's Jekyll-and-Hyde shifts from Sourpuss to Sweetie Pie . . . and back again. Her child's point-of-view narration has a particularly genuine sounding tone; the story humorously allows readers to imagine the grandparents' reactions without actually depicting them. Medlin's dramatization of the "no-o-o-o-o!" sequence (a rising crescendo of childlike raging resistance) is so eerily spot-on that parents, overly familiar with their own version of this scene, may need to turn down the volume, while younger listeners may catch an edifying glimpse of their own reflections in the story.
