Synopses & Reviews
Fresh, innovative, and loaded with laugh-out-loud wit and humor, Just Grace is a series
that stands out from the pack, just like Grace herself. Author Charise Harper weaves
together distinctive, quirky illustrations and vibrant characters in fast-paced stories that
capture familiar school and family situations that every young girl can relate to in a truly
authentic voice. Artist, comedian, animal-lover, environmentalist, cook, sister, good friend
and#8212;Grace is the quintessential 3rd graderand#8230; just a little bitand#8230; different.
In this eighth addition to the seriesand#8212;Grace has major problems. Her neighbor is
getting married and she has to get over her disappointment at not being chosen for a
flower girl, not to mention figure out what to give as a wedding present! But with a touch
of girl power, Grace musters up a fantastic idea that takes a lot of planning and a little
help from all of her friends; her dog, Mr. Scruffers; and Crinkles the cat. Will her plan go
off without a hitch on wedding day?
In the twelfth installment in the Just Grace series, Just Grace gets crafty!
Martha the talking dog tells her friends four fur-raising scary stories in this summer camp-out chapter book. Based onand#160;the popularand#160;TVand#160;showand#160;Martha Speaksand#160;airing on PBS.
In this eighthand#160;installment of the beloved Just Grace series, Grace finds out she's invited to a wedding! A rich combination of art and text, this book perfectly captures the ups and downs of the life of a third-grader.
Nothing turns a backyard camp-out from yawn to "Yowza!" like a few scary stories. When their repertoire of shadow puppets is exhausted, Martha (the talking dog from PBSand#8217;s hit TV show Martha Speaks)and her friends decide to share some science-fiction storiesand#8212;the creepier the better! Martha tells one about aliens from Venus who eat frozen yogurt with their ears, T.D. scares everyone with malevolent alien cat people, Helen tells "The Telltale Artichoke Heart" about a disturbing tin can ("THUMP. THUMP. THUMP"), and Alice tells "Night of the Phantom Scarecrow." A few Campfire Story Starters will have aspiring storytellers off and running!
Grace has lots of new and exciting things to share in the latest addition to the Just Grace series! There's a new crossing guard in town named Marie who needs a bit of help making friends, a fun substitute teacher for Miss Lois, and most exciting, Grace and Mimi are going to have their own table at the craft fair! They are going to make lots of crafts to selland#8212;and hopefully save up enough money to go to the county fair. There is one small problem, thoughand#8212;Mimi is a sewing natural, but when it comes to crafting, Grace doesn't know what to make. Leave it to Grace to come up with a great idea for the fair that is a big success, and even helps the new crossing guard find a friend.
