Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nellie Sue is a true cowgirl with an imagination the size of Texas, and she is looking forward to a great school year. But when new girl Maya sits next to her best friend, Anna, and she finds her new desk is sandwiched between the rough and wild J-Twins, and a mysterious cow picture lands on her desk, Nellie Sue realizes that this day is NOT going her way.  Can this trusty cowgirl dust herself off and use her high-flying spirit to turn the day around and make a brand-new friend?

Readers of Fancy Nancy will love the laugh-out-loud classroom antics and story of friendship.

Review:

"Having secured a trusty horse (er... pink bike) in her previous outing and picked out a flashy pair of 'dancin' boots,' now all Nellie Sue needs are some like-minded companions. She invites the neighborhood — including the 'glitter girls' who prefer ballet slippers to cowgirl boots — to a 'Barnyard Bash.' Janni and Avril lovingly capture Nellie Sue's devotion to her cowgirl persona, charmingly out of synch with her suburban surroundings. When the whole neighborhood appears at the garage door, it's enough to turn the sunset-lit clouds into galloping horses. Though spilled lemonade makes the proceedings a little sticky, readers who share Nellie Sue's passionate nature will cheer her persistence and success. Ages 3 — 5. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Nellie Sue is keeping it fair at the fair

Nellie Sue is back and she's taking her cowgirl flair to the county fair. There are games to play, animals to pet, and rides to go on. But of course, Nellie Sue is really looking forward to the Bike Rodeo. She hopes that practicing will make her and her two-wheeled horse good enough to win against the reigning champion and her friend, A. J. Pickett. When a nearby goat gets loose and threatens to ruin A.J.'s ride, Nellie Sue knows that it's her job as an honest cowgirl to step in--even if it means coming in second place.

Synopsis:

Nellie Sue is back with brand-new dancing boots and her usual cowgirl flair. She knows that dancing would be more fun with friends, but her new neighbors, the Glitter Girls, would rather pirouette and twirl than hoedown. Nellie decides to throw a Barnyard Bash and invite the whole neighborhood. With her big imagination, Nellie transforms her garage into the perfect place to do-si-do. Soon everyone is joining in, but could a slip, a trip, and a slide cause her big bash to be a big messy flop?
