Ms. Kemeny's class liked the part when Noni has no hair because it's funny. We liked the part when Noni finally says no because her face was so red. We liked when Susie makes Noni put the underwear on her head and pretend to be a dog. Noni needs to be brave and have courage to stand up for herself.
Mrs. Cimaglia's class liked the part when Noni finally said what she really wanted to say "NO". That is because she always said yes when she really wanted to say no. She did this because she didn't want people to think she is bossy. We also liked when Noni was always nice to people and helping them whenever they needed help. The story was a little bit funny.

Good, funny, realistic messages about friendships, peer pressure, and standing up for yourself, suitable for both genders (although the characters in the story are girls).

A good book for meeker children who have trouble saying no to friends and get pushed around because of it. Does not address saying no to adults/strangers

"In this picture book, Noni, a bright-eyed little girl, undergoes a course in assertiveness training and the management of overbearing personalities. If this burden makes the book sound dull and didactic, be assured that it is anything but. Côté’s illustrations, spiky and sparkling, ensure that the eye is captivated, and Hartt-Sussman’s perfectly paced and pitched text carries the story forward in a most engaging fashion."
