Vote for Rosie! Sure, she wears geeky-looking glasses and she tattles on her classmates. But, hey, snitching has its good side. Thanks to Rosie, Ronald Milligan has stopped blowing his nose in the water fountain. And now, Rosie is determined to do even more for her classmates -- by becoming president of the fourth grade! With the help of her two best (and only) friends, Rosie devises a brilliant campaign to defeat the two most popular kids in her class: soccer star Alan Allen and model-wannabe Summer Lynne Jones. But when despicable Alan steals Rosie's unbeatable campaign slogans, it's time to watch out! Nosy Rosie is on the warpath!
In this sequel to Maxie, Rosie and Earl--Partners in Grime , Rosie runs for fourth-grade president in an attempt to gain more clout at school. Using Maxie's advice about choosing a platform that will distinguish her from other candidates, Rosie focuses on the abysmal cafeteria lunches. But her two popular competitors wrangle strategic information out of the easily intimidated Maxie. Seeking revenge, Rosie spreads a secret to besmirch the reputation of one of her opponents. Her plan backfires, but she learns from the experience. Park's characters are no more likable this time around: Rosie fully deserves the ``snitch'' moniker, and isn't remorseful until it is she who suffers. Further, the comedy is strained and the dialogue corny. Still, Rosie's first-person narrative offers an inside look at school elections and the ramifications of resorting to smear tactics. Ages 8-11.
