    Starred review from October 4, 1999
    Wilson (Double Act) here introduces an animated heroine who delivers droll observations in a self-assured voice with a decidedly British accent. "I love fooling around, doing crazy things and being a bit sassy and making everyone laugh," announces Charlie (short for Charlotte). Her engaging prattle chronicles events at school--where she tangles with her teacher, bickers with her best friends and works on a project about Victorian life--as well as happenings at home. Charlie's newly unemployed single mother takes on three part-time positions, the most notable being a job as caregiver for a youngster who lives with his father. Much to the girl's chagrin, her mother takes a fancy to her employer. Their evolving relationship provides the backdrop for the novel's most dramatic and poignant scenes, in which Wilson reveals her ability to elicit tears as well as laughter. Between chapters, readers find reproduced "pages" from Charlie's school report--journal-like entries written by a poor Victorian girl who leaves home to help support her family. Wilson creatively reshapes Charlie's own experiences to depict the plight of a girl living 100 years earlier, thus adding new dimension to Charlie's perceptions while offering intriguing period particulars. Sharratt's lively, doodled spot drawings further reinforce the protagonist's view of life, both present and past. To borrow a phrase from Charlie, it would be "easy peasy, simple pimple" to welcome her back. Ages 8-12.

  • AudioFile Magazine When Miss Beckwith assigns her class a report on a Victorian subject, Charlie (Charlotte) thinks boring. But as she toils over her project about a nursery maid, she comes to realize how interesting and difficult that era was. Charlie also gets to know, like and respect both Miss Beckwith and a boy in her class, each of whom she had previously decided were also--boring. Eve Karpf does an outstanding job with both posh and ordinary characters, as well as the linguistic differences of diverse times. Karpf's sterling delivery makes each character special and distinct. This prize-winning story is even more splendid as narrated by this accomplished actress. S.G.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
