PULVER, Robin. "Thank You, Miss Doover. "illus. by Stephanie Roth Sisson. unpaged. Holiday House. 2010. RTE $16.95. ISBN 978-0-8234-2046-9. LC 2009029949. Gr 1-3 Miss Doover s class is learning about thank-you letters, so Jack writes to Great-Aunt Gertie, who has given him personalized stationery. Small panels opposite his second draft show uses for her gift and introduce his dog. Besides correcting his spelling, Jack s teacher shows him how to expand the letter and revise it to spare his relative s feelings ( It s not my favorite gift, but I have used it a lot ). Several carefully worded drafts conceal as the clever pictures do not Puddly s accident, soaked up by pages of Jack s writing paper. Pulver successfully gets into the minds of both Jack ( But Mom said she hopes Great-Aunt Gertie never finds out how I used it! ) and Miss Doover ( Aaaaaaaargh! ) through speech and thought bubbles. In a last thank-you letter this one to his teacher Jack realizes why her name is Miss Doover. Using colored pencils and acrylic paint, Sisson crafts a series of panels and spreads intermingled with multiple thank-you letters on notebook paper. With its succession of teachable moments, this is a fine, funny writing lesson. "Mary Jean Smith, Southside Elementary School, Lebanon, TN ""
