    1. It s the classic doppelganger fallacy The scientist or magician, or wishful thinking kid creates a double of himself to fob all his scutwork off onto, but the double turns around and says, Why the heck should YOU have all the fun Make your own darn bed This version is unlimitedly fun, with gratuitous but appreciated Western references who doesn t enjoy a fizzy sarsparilla with a pal and a satisfying conclusion.


    2. Lincoln Green leaves all the annoying tasks that he isn t interested in doing to his double Although at first he started with just one or two annoying tasks, eventually his alter ego is doing everything unpleasant Things change, though, once his neighbor Billy befriends You Know Who and he stops doing all of Lincoln s jobs In order to stay out of trouble, maybe he will have to do things for himself the text and illustrations are filled with sly humor as well as a good lesson about responsibilit [...]


    3. This story is all about Lincoln Green, who has a double You know, someone who looks exactly like him While Lincoln Green is hanging out with friends, timing his handstands, or going on field trips, his handy stand in, or You Know Who, is doing all the things Lincoln doesn t want to do Their agreement works out for a while, but soon enough Lincoln Green finds himself in big trouble.Overall, I felt like this was just an okay book It was a fun read and I m sure there are loads of children who would [...]


    4. Lincoln Green has a doppleganger and it s name is You Know Who Whenever Lincoln doesn t want to go to the dentist, mow the grass or straighten up his room, he s happy to let You Know Who do it instead Soon he leaves everything up to his alterego to pick up the slack until one day his You Know Who finds a exciting counterpart in Billy, the next door neighbor You Know Who is suddenly sipping sarsaparilla and doesn t want to come out of the treehouse Lincoln, who has been leaning on his double too [...]


    5. Cute, but nothing special The reader is supposed to realize that the double for Lincoln is just his reflection, which can somehow come out of the mirror and do his homework and chores How Why It just happens, and that would be okay if there was to the story It eventually goes wrong when the double gets lured away from doing all the chores, and the teacher notices that the writing on the homework is backwards which the reader is never shown, so that somes as an odd surprise That s pretty much th [...]


    6. I don t know The illustrations are cute, the story is cute, but I don t think a little kid, who thinks literally, will get this at all I didn t really get it The You Know Who designation for an imaginary or ghostly twin just didn t make sense to me While the consequences for not doing what needs to be done and for procrastinating makes for a good tale, the execution, for me, was left wanting I can see a lot of kids saying, Huh and then parents having to explain it and re explain it.


    7. This is an entertaining, but odd story of a young boy who relies on an doppelganger stand in for all of the boring, difficult, and irritating things that he doesn t want to do The book has a bit of a predictable plot, but the illustrations quite humorous and complement the story nicely We enjoyed reading this book together.


    8. Lincoln Green would rather be doing interesting, fun things He finds a solution in making his mirror image do all the lame things, like homework and permission slips for field trips I enjoyed the illustration showing his homework filled out backwards A little bit Tom Sawyer esq.


    9. Cute story, but I didn t really get the overall picture Maybe that kids need to learn that you have to do things that you don t always want to do I don t know lol.


    10. Doesn t make a whole lot of sense to get to it s point.I can just imagine the questions the kids would ask and I wouldn t be able to answer.
