Do not let a mop sit overnight in water. Fix things before they get too big for fixing. Custodial wisdom: Mattie Breen writes it all down. She has just one week to convince Uncle Potluck to take her on as his custodial apprentice at Mitchell P. Anderson Elementary School. One week until school starts and she has to be the new girl again. But if she can be Uncle Potluck’s apprentice, she’ll have important work to do during lunch and recess. Work that will keep her safely away from the other fifth graders. But when her custodial wisdom goes all wrong, Mattie’s plan comes crashing down. And only then does she begin to see how one small, brave act can lead to a friend who is hound dog true.

    " A slim, introspective look at being shy and coping with many moves and bullying. I liked the use of custodial wisdom as metaphor for life wisdom. It was a pleasure to spend time with the strong but gentle Mattie Breen and her colorful family. "

    " A character that you sympathize with, that you feel for, that you want to hug and encourage. A good story that tugs at your heart and leaves you smiling. "

    " This is no "Crooked Kind of Perfect," but it still has a lot of charm and appeal. The characters of Mattie and Uncle Potluck are quirky, but still downhome and true. And I think it says something good about the book when we watch our talented heroine yearn to be a custodial assistant and we go right along rooting for her. Linda Urban has a simple, poetic way of writing, and I look foward to reading more of her stories in the future. "

    " A sweet book about being shy, friendship, and learning to find your voice. I love the relationships in this book. I love the portrayal of adults they are both cool and thoughtful, but also clueless and with foibles. All characters have something going on with them that make them human. Kudos for having a parent who is fallible but not necessarily a complete disaster. There can be family dramas without it having to be that the parents are completely horrid alcoholics who beat their kids. Excellent choice for 2-4 grades "
