Question Boy Meets Little Miss Know-It-All by Catalanotto - OPTIONAL

Catalanotto, Peter  Question Boy Meets Little Miss Know-It-All  A Richard Jackson Book, 2012.  $16.99 PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.  

A little boy torments his small neighborhood with too many questions.  Questions that don’t always have answers.  But one day at the park he meets Miss Know-It-All, and she has more than enough answers for all of Question boys questions.  They have a standoff in the park that draws the attention of those around them.  Miss Know-It-All has so much information and random facts that it causes Question boy to cower, but when she is done rambling her many facts, Question boy stands up and asks “Why”.  He asks why is so many different ways, that Miss-know-It-All, screams at him, “Because I said so”.  They both fall to the ground and lay there until they decide to become friends and they walk home together.  

The random facts that Miss-Know-It-All yells are fun facts and it’s a cute book, but the superhero element is a bit weird.  

EL (K-3)-OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
