Does anyone except the heroine know about Kindergarten Rule Number One? (Tie your shoes by yourself!) Does anyone care that the heroine CANNOT tie her shoes but CAN count backwards from 10? The days before the start of school are anguishing as one horrible event after another is imagined. Mom and Dad reassure cheerfully, but the time to walk into the classroom arrives too soon. Rachael Lillis narrates with the straightforward verve of a 5-year-old. Her anguish and quiet despair are palpable. Echoing sound effects underscore the relentless countdown, and background conversations underscore the humor. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
