School Library Journal - 01/01/2012 K-Gr 3—Beatrice Bottomwell, as her many friends and admirers know, does everything just right, from making the perfect peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich to juggling. But when she almost drops an egg in cooking class, she can't stop thinking about her "Almost Mistake," worrying that it will happen again. And happen it does—right in the middle of her big salt-shaker-hamster-water-balloon juggling act in the school talent show, when Beatrice makes her first error in a huge, public way. After surviving that, she learns to take chances and risks making more mistakes. Pett's beady-eyed cartoon illustrations are expressive and winsome, a perfect complement to this story of a girl finding out that it's okay to be imperfect.—Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD - Copyright 2012 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
