Booklist Reviews 2016 December #2

The creator of Boats for Papa (2015) and Before I Leave (2016) tackles here a more mundane problem: boredom. Badgers Tic and Tac have exhausted their usual pursuits and aren't keen to try any of Ma's suggestions. Eventually they agree to hang laundry for their mother while she goes to the market. The boys do a surprisingly good job, but when they complete their task, they decide to also hang the winter clothes, blankets, and every whatnot, bauble, and trinket they can find. Ma returns to find all their worldly possessions on display, and after hanging her sons on the line, the boys gleefully plot how they can next "help" their mother. Bagley's cheerful pen-and-watercolor illustrations capture the humor and absurdity of the boys' antics, and careful observers will notice the forest animals that assist the boys. Cleverly plotted and skillfully crafted, this humorous story manages to convey both adult and child perspectives. A good choice for one-on-one sharing; make sure to allow time to savor the illustrative details. Copyright 2016 Booklist Reviews.

This entertaining book opens with two young badgers, Tic and Tac, beset by the cruelest of childhood fates: boredom. The two are at such a loss for what to do that they take up their mother's request to help hang the laundry. They enthusiastically throw themselves into this new activity and, when they run out of clothes, hang any random household object they can get their hands on. Featuring the same warm watercolors and attention to detail seen in last year's touching Boats for Papa, Bagley's illustrations give readers plenty to pore over. Unlike that book, however, there is no hint of melancholy here. Bagley shows a keen eye for the sometimes off-kilter logic of childhood. While the sight of toilet paper, roller skates, and a bunch of carrots hanging from the laundry line is delightfully absurd, the way in which Tic and Tac get to that point feels authentic. When Ma Badger discovers the bizarre laundry line crisscrossing the yard, she comes up with a fitting consequence for Tic and Tac, playfully leaving them out to dry with the laundry -- with hints of more mischief to come. Injecting a touch of the ridiculous into the mundane, this story shows how even the most tedious of chores has the potential to turn a child's day around. minh le Copyright 2017 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.

PW Reviews 2016 December #1

Tic and Tac are badgers, brothers, and bored: the title page is littered with the activities and toys they've exhausted. Ma Badger corrals the boys into helping hang the family's laundry on a clothesline, leaving them to finish while she runs an errand. This mundane task proves so much fun that, in short order, the brothers improvise a clothesline that zigzags through their yard, hanging "everything they could find that wasn't nailed down" on it: clothes, bedding, kitchen utensils, an alarm clock, a bunch of carrots, a checkerboard, a fishbowl, and much more. Ma Badger delivers the punch line for this effervescent comedy sketch, translating "as you sow, so shall you reap" into a fitting punishment. Bagley, who dealt with more somber themes in Boats for Papa and Before I Leave, uses her tidy, detailed rendering style to great comic effect. She stages much of the action along a single plane, letting readers savor the improbable "wash" as it adds up, then pulls back for a birds-eye view so they can admire the full extent of the brothers' mischievous domesticity. Ages 3–6. Agent: Alexandra Penfold, Upstart Crow Literary. (Feb.) Copyright 2016 Publisher Weekly.
