This a terrific children's picture book that has relevance for adults as well. Mrs. Biddlebox is having a horrible day, but she finds a way to cope with it. The rhyme scheme is fun and the message is powerful - perserverance pays off in the end. There is a twist at the end that is not part of the story. The author Linda Smith died in 2000 after losing her battle with breast cancer. Mrs Biddlebox is based on her experiences. As a cancer survivor, I was deeply affected when I learned that and so were my students.

This was a fun little book that was read to me in class and I felt that it was a little picker upper at the end of class. It had great illustrator and author and I enjoyed it. It brought back memories from elementary school and it made me reflect on all that I have gone through during my school career.

I loved this book not only because it was a childrens book but because I then found out that Mrs. Biddlebox was actually based on the author and her experience with cancer. It was a nice way to put a not so nice thing in words and pictures for children. I liked it very much.

I loved this book. Smith took every ounce of what makes a bad day, a bad day and turned it into something useful so that one can have good day. In a way, we should all do that if we go through those types of days just set the bad aside and continue your day, and at the end of the day turn the bad into something useful by talking to someone. What a wonderful novel with a optomistic moral that can be taken anyway!

I really enjoyed this book, it was a fun book and it really made you think. This book even though a children book really made you step back and think about life and how you really just need to roll in with the waves. Yes there are going to be days that are just not going to go you way but your going to have to take the lead. Deal with the bad things and think how to make those bad things into something good.

This book was very good. It brought back memories which I thought only pre-existed in my childhhod past. It brought a smile to my face. Child or adult, anyone will appreciate the simple, but effective tools the author uses to bring you back to that simple time, with no worries, or responsibilities to deal with, even if only for a moment.

This children's book is about persevering in overcoming obstacles. Though i have not yet experienced a large obstacle to overcome, the book still spoke to me. I enjoyed it very much and the fact that it was read to the class as if we were little kids increased my enjoyment. Wonderful!

I found Mrs.Biddlebox a entertaining book! Nothing is better than being able to go back and remember your childhood days with these children novels. Mrs. BiddleBox is a perfect book to read when you are having a bad day because it picks you up. The Illustrations in the book made the book even better than what it already was

I am not accustomed to being read such colorful books anymore, and I really enjoyed the book. Mrs. Biddlebox's sinister attitude reminded me a bit of myself, which I thought was funny. Then, understanding the true story behind this book made me love the book ten times more. It's a really nice way to bring a smile to ones face when having a day like Mrs. Biddlebox was. =]

This book was read during class, but I really did quite enjoy the short story. I enjoyed it because it showed the day in the eyes of a person who just does not feel good at all. Its not like your average book, that is all about a happy and not sad life of a princess or something of that matter. But I enjoyed it because it shows in an artistic way how the character gets over their dark and gloomy day.

I was first introduced to this book through my English IIII teacher, Mr.Lewis. Im not really sure why he brought this book to a senior class, but I did learn a lesson from its context. Before reading the book the cover caught my eye with its gloomy look, then as Mr.Lewis read on I began to like how each page had its own illustrations along with a nice little ryhm. Then when the book was finished Mr.Lexis explained how this book was written by a breast cancer patient, then I remembered my grandmother(R.I.P) and my mother's past experiances with the illness and I understood more of why Mrs. Biddlebox was how she was. I recomend this book to anyone, young and old, because of its rich illustrations, attractive ryhms, and the background of how this author came to write this book.

I "caught" the book during my english class. At first i wasn't to sure what to expect with the childish title of 'Mrs.Biddlebox' but to my surprise it was quite a good book. I guess it is true when they say u shouldn't judge a book by its cover, or in this case its title. The book was a fun story that sounds perfect to read to your younger siblings after they've had a bad day. The pictures really caught my eye and were definitely one of my favorite parts of the book. Overall 'Mrs.Biddlebox' is a fun, easy, and enjoyable book for everyone. =]

This book reminded me a lot of the days when we were still in elementry school, back when we had no worries! At first I really didnt understand the whole adult part of the book, but once the little backround of the author was stated I soon began to realize what the whole story really ment to the author. And how she wanted her readers to react to her story.

I enjoyed this book because it had an adult storyline but it was written in the form of a children's book. It showed how an individual should try to be as optimistic as possible regardless of the situation. I also enjoyed this book because it reflected the author's life.

Despite the fact that the book was completely made for children, I was surprised to have enjoyed it. The storyline was symbolic and relevant to people and how they should deal with certain issues. In addition, I was more interested in the book because of the author's connection to the book.

I could relate to the book Mrs.Biddlebox because there sre some days where I myself wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Mrs.Biddlebox was a good book for the class to hear because it happens to all of us, getting disturbed in any way could get annoying and the book helped us see how we may not realize we are acting. I liked the pictures in the book because it was very dark until the end, the last last page had a lot more color and it showed that the Mrs.Biddlebox's mood changed.

I thought this book was really good not only because it reminded me of back in the day when i was young but because it talked about something that we all go through in our lifes.

I really liked this story. Most people can relate to it because everybody has to have a bad day at some point. But I was more surprised that the author was talking about her experiences with cancer, now that, not everybody can relate to that.

I also enjoyed hearing someone read to me a childrens book. I felt like I was in 1st grade again. The time where I didn't have to think about college applications, or SAT's. Thank you Mr. Lewis! It really got my mind off stressful things =)

I felt that this book was pretty awesome. I really enjoy putting myself into te story and I felt that I could realte to it on so many different levels. It makes you realize thats you are not the only one who has struggles in life. I also enjoyed all of the artwork, it really put you inside of the story! Overall it was a good book that could be enjoyed by all age groups.

Mrs. Biddlebox was a great and enjoyable book! It taught me to live my life day by day. If i wake up on the wrong side of the bed I should make the best of it and try to fix it.

I thought that the book had great pictures that went along with the story. When i found out what the book was based on it mademe like the book much more just because of the meaning that it had. I also thought that it was a great book because it was for children as well as adults.

Mrs. Biddlebox is a great book because of its pictures and the meaning of waking up in the morning. Having read this book it has helped me to wake up in a better mood in the morning.

I enjoyed the book. I found its meaning to be a good. After finding out what happened to the author of the book i found that its content was from the authors own life.

i liked the pictures in the book and i was able to make the connection between the authors personal life with the book, after mr. lewis told us she suffered with breast cancer.

The illustrations in "Mrs. Biddlebox" were a perfect mirror image of the story. The gloomy, dark pictures parralled Mrs. Biddlebox's bitter, sullen mood. The story is easily relatable for both children and adults alike, because everyone experiances those awful, trivial, tedious bad days. After learning that the story reflected the author's struggle with cancer, I felt even more connected. This past year, my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer, and I was with her through the struggle, and those gloomy, "Biddlebox" days sometimes seemed like they would never end. The best part of the story would have to be the end, when Mrs. Biddlebox is finally able to overcome her "funk" and turn her awful day into a fabulous night.
