Book review: Tony Baloney Buddy Trouble, by Pam Munoz Ryan.

Munoz Ryan, Pam. Tony Baloney Buddy Trouble. (Tony Baloney series). Illustrated by Edwin Fotheringham. Scholastic Press, 2014. $16.99. ISBN 9780545481694. UNP. Ages kindergarten- 1st P7/Q6

This book has a contents section with four chapters: Best behavior, Disaster, Lost and found, and Warm and fuzzy. This is a book about a little penguin named Tony Baloney. The pictures are fun bright and colorful but the stories make no sense. My first impression of this book is that the end papers have a wild pattern that may hurt some reader’s eyes. The paper that is used is thin and seems inexpensive but the pictures are clear and beautiful. November 2014 review by Melinda Dye.
