Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I had a bad August.

A very bad August.

As bad as pickle juice on a cookie.

As bad as a spider web on your leg.

As bad as the black parts on a banana.

I hope your August was better.

I really do.

 When Eleanor's beloved babysitter, Bibi, has to move away to take care of her ailing father, Eleanor must try to bear the summer without Bibi and prepare for the upcoming school year. Her new, less-than-perfect babysitter just isn't up to snuff, and she doesn't take care of things like Bibi used to. But as the school year looms, it's time for new beginnings. Eleanor soon realizes that she will always have Bibi, no matter how far away she is. 

Written in a lyrical style with thoughtful and charming illustrations throughout, this remarkable debut novel tells a poignant story of friendship and the bittersweet feelings of growing up.

Praise for Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie

“Eleanors ingenuous free-verse monologue should strike a chord with readers, especially those who may have had to cope with the loss of a loved one. Cordells halftone cartoons convey the storys pathos and humor, as well as Eleanors changeable moods.” –Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Gooney Bird Greene returns for another rollicking classroom adventure in this fifth installment of two-time Newbery Award Winner Lois Lowry's Gooney Bird series.

Synopsis:

This charming, coming-of-age story is perfect for fans of Joan Bauer and Sheila Turnage.

Prairie Evers is finding that school isnt all its cracked up to be. Shes always been homeschooled by her grandmother, learning about life while they ramble through the woods. But now Prairies family has moved north and she has to attend school for the first time, where her education is in a classroom and the behavior of her classmates isnt very nice. The only good thing is meeting Ivy, her first true friend. Prairie wants to be a good friend, even though she can be clueless at times. But when Ivys world is about to fall apart and she needs a friend most, Prairie is right there for her, corralling all her optimism and determination to hatch a plan to help.

Wonderful writing and an engaging narrator distinguish this lively story that celebrates friendship of every kind.

"The simply written, satisfying text and pleasing gray-wash illustrations make this beginning chapter book from the Princess Posey series a beguiling choice for young readers."—Booklist
