know you had one at your school. You know you loved to hate
her. You may have even been one at one time or another. That
is if you were lucky enough to be The Recess Queen. SHE gets to decide
what game would be played. SHE got to decide what jump rope chants
would be said. This recess queen did more than boss the other kids
around, she pushed, smooshed and lollapalooshed kids. Hammered ‘em,
slammered ‘em, kitz and kajammered ‘em. UNTIL a teeny tiny kid named
Katie Sue came to the school. Katie Sue changed recess with bravery
and persistence so now the “playground’s one great place.” And everybody
enjoys being friends …YESSSSSS! (Laura Linder, South
Carolina Book Awards, 2006)
