When Newell's very special hat is taken away at school, he and his most talented friends concoct the perfect plan to get it back.
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 March #2
When Newell mistakes a Wednesday for a Saturday, his punishment for being late yet again is the most dreaded of allâsummer school. But Principal Todd will commute his sentence if Newell performs in the middle-school talent show. The problem is, Newell has no discernible talents. The day creeps closer, things get worse. School is inviting the entire town! His father is sending out invitations! He has to wear a penguin suit . . . with a tutu! For all its fast-paced humor, Newell's story is filled with a building anxiety that will fill middle-schoolers with urgent suspense and the sweet relief of recognition. The humor, pacing, and visual flights of imagination owe plenty to Babymouse, as does the wiry linework, which is part Jennifer Holm, part Charles Schultz on uppers. But that's not a bad thing; middle-school readers will welcome it. The realistic and upbeat view of friendship is a plus, too, but Newell's solution provides the most original and uplifting surprise, one that relies on sharing the spotlight rather than hogging it. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
