Publisher Comments:

Sadie is all set for her familyandrsquo;s rustic camping tripandmdash;sheandrsquo;s packed her favorite patent leather shoes, ballerina skirt, and other stylish accessories in her sparkly suitcaseandmdash;everything a girl needs in order to have an adventure! Especially when she thinks Bigfoot is on the loose. Along with her brother, Sadie searches for clues, crawls through a cave, swims down a river, and climbs a mountain. Will she be able to catch the mysterious monster with her lasso of pearls and magic gold wand? Sadie proves that girly girls can get their hands dirty and be brave, too!

Lyrical text is complemented by bright and lively illustrations, and Sadieandrsquo;s fearlessness will leave readers ready to grab their satin capes and head out on their own adventures!

Praise for Iand#39;m Gonna Climb a Mountain...

andquot;This enthusiastic take on girl power embraces having it allandmdash;with both strength and style.andquot;

--School Library Journal

andquot;Singerand#39;s story crackles with humor and attitude, its driving rhythms making it an infectious read-aloud. Avriland#39;s busy illustrations, using pastel chalk over a pencil outline, display a range of bright colors and have a slightly dreamy cast, as if they came right out of Sadieand#39;s head. So can a girl rough it in ruffles? Silly question.andquot;

--Kirkus Reviews

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 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.

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.
