Review: Karen's Worst Day by Katy Farina (Baby-sitters Little Sister Graphix 3)
This one is a great read for kids, one that emphasises the validity of feeling frustrated and of the little things that can give kids joy. It's also lovely to see how Karen's older step siblings work together to help turn things around. As always, Katy Farina's illustrations are very well done. That said, I was very disappointed to see that there was no mention of Mister Ed (one of my favourite things about the original--and I feel for you Karen, I still remember my own disappointment when Channel 7 took reruns of that off the air in the early 1990s.)
A fitting tribute to the original, and nicely updated for contemporary readers.
