School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3-- This third book featuring Addie and Max, best friends and neighbors, lets readers share in their special relationship. Addie shows up early at Max's house with his birthday present in hand. She explains that she can't come to his party because her new hair cut is a disaster and she can't take off her hat. The two friends resolve the crisis and turn Addies Bad Day into a fun-filled ``Best Birthday.'' Truesdell's watercolor illustrations add humor (great hat, expressive eyes, and revealing body language) to a story that's sure to appeal to kids. --Gale W.

Horn Book Review

Because she hates her haircut, Addie refuses to remove her hat or go to Max's birthday party. She is finally persuaded to attend when Max, who receives a duplicate of a costume Addie owns, suggests they both dress up. Beginning readers will relate to the universal story, enhanced by colorful, amusing illustrations. From HORN BOOK 1993, (c) Copyright 2010.

Kirkus Review

In her third appearance, a tight-capped Addie delivers Max's present but explains that she can't come to his party. Good friend that he is, he tactfully ferrets out the reason (she's embarrassed by her new haircut), gets her on the road to recovery (``Your hair is growing back!'' and ``You have more hair than I do''), and, best, agrees to wear the jungle suit she's just given him if she wears hers to the party, too--thus concealing her newly shorn locks. Robins's wryly sympathetic voice and comically realistic dialogue are right on target; as always, Truesdell captures the histrionics in a few deft pen lines decked out in cheerful color. A particularly amiable take on a lively friendship. (Easy reader. 4-8) Copyright ©Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.


Booklist Review

Gr. 1-2. Addie really wants to go to Max's birthday party, but it's such a bad day that she doesn't dare. When she sneaks in early to give him his present and leave, Max demands the reason. It turns out that Addie's bad day is really a bad hair day. The barber snipped off so much during her haircut that she's sure she's bald, even though she hasn't had the nerve to look. Max takes off her hat, and, in best-friend fashion, gives her the good news: her hair really looks pretty neat. The bad day turns into a good day as the two friends dress up for the party as jungle twins. Colorful cartoon-style illustrations add dash to this cheery story. New readers with apprehensions about barber shops will be especially sympathetic. ~--Leone McDermott
