Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Calvin Coconut needs to fix things with Stella—and fast!

Stella from Texas is now officially a member of the Coconut household. As if getting a bossy babysitter isnt bad enough for Calvin, Stella teases him mercilessly. Whats a nine-year-old boy to do? Calvin decides to “fix” her, and he dumps his neighbors cat Zippy on Stellas bed, knowing shes allergic. But when Stella breaks out in hives and misses her first big date, Calvin realizes his “zippy fix” went too far. Hes got to make it up to her, and decides to give her a birthday present. But he has no money. Along with the help of his loyal friends and little sister, Darci, Calvin works hard, and comes up with enough cash to give Stella the best birthday gift ever.

Graham Salisburys voice perfectly captures the inner workings of Calvins mind, and Jacqueline Rogers delightful pictures add zest and humor to The Zippy Fix.

Synopsis:

In this follow-up to "Trouble Magnet," bossy Stella is now officially Calvin's babysitter. He decides to "fix" her and dumps his neighbor's cat Zippy on Stella's bed, knowing she's allergic. But when Stella breaks out in hives and misses her first big date, Calvin realizes he's gone too far. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

Fourth-grader Calvin lives near the beach in Oahu with his mom and little sister. Mom says: You're the man of the house. But Calvin's not great at being the man of the house, or taking care of his responsibilities. He's too busy having fun with his pals, and avoiding Tito, the bully.

Trouble Magnet is the first book in a new series for younger readers full of all the fun of growing up in Hawaii. It introduces a wonderful multicultural cast of characters, including Mr. Purdy, who calls his fourth-grade class Boot Camp; Uncle Scoop, who runs the lunch wagon at the beach; Ledward, Mom's 6'7 boyfriend; and gorgeous, intimidating, 15-year-old Stella-from-Texas, who arrives to be the live-in babysitter--and to step all over Calvin's turf.
