Editorial Review

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Cover: Secret Holes

“Syliva is a spunky character. . . and her first-person narration flows in easy-to-read dialect with enough cultural references thrown in to evoke the seventies setting. Her ten-year-old voice reflects an apt egocentrism, and her retreat into theatrical illness whenever she is faced with hearing a new secret is as funny as it is touchingly realistic. Black-and-white illustrations support the text and accentuate the warm relationships between the characters; readers with their own complex family relationships will take heart at Sylvia’s happy ever after.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
