2012 Award
The Other Side of Town
( by Jon Agee, Scholastic $17.95 Score: )

Take a zany cab ride to Schmeeker Street with a funny little guy in a goofy green suit. No, he does not mean Bleecker Street. He means Schmeeker, on the other side of town. And so it goes. The god natured cab driver plays straight man to the goofy guy’s directions and finds himself in an alternative world...where they have spotholes instead of potholes, a Finkon Tunnel instead of the Lincoln one and baseball is played by the Spankees not the Yankees. As always, Jon Agee comes up with a light romp that is carried by his cartoonish illustrations. Entertaining—but probably not more than once or twice.
