Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's Clementine's turn to be "Friend of the Week"! She gets to be line leader, collect the lunch money, and feed the fish. Even better, the other kids will make her a booklet, full of the things they value about having her in the class. After reading her friend Margaret's booklet, Clementine begins to get nervous and a little jealous — she has to get a great booklet now. Fortunately, she has a lot of astoundishing ideas for getting the kids to write great stuff about her. Unfortunately, just as she's working on the best one, something terrible happens to her beloved kitten Moisturizer. Worst of all, exactly when she needs a friend the most, Margaret lets her down.

Or does she...?

Synopsis:

Clementine has been picked for Friend of the Week, which means she gets to be line leader, collect the milk money, and feed the fish. But what begins as one of the best weeks ever may turn out to be the worst. Who knew that being a friend could be so hard? Illustrations.

Synopsis:

Clementine got picked for  "Friend of the Week", which means that she gets to present her autobiography to the class, be the line leader, collect the milk money, feed the fish, and, best of all, the other kids will write compliments about her in a booklet. Her friend and neighbor Margaret isn't impressed — she was Friend of the Week last year, way back when she was in third grade, and found it boring. When Clementine tries to sneak a peek at Margaret's booklet, Margaret angrily kicks her out of her apartment. Fortunately, Clementine doesn't need Margaret — her kitten, Moisturizer, will listen to her problems without talking back.

Clementine figures that if she does nice things for her classmates, they will write nice things about her in her booklet. When her teacher announces the bike rally on Saturday, Clementine knows that she'll have the best-looking bike in the history of life, because has access to all of the decorations her dad uses to spruce up the apartment lobby on every holiday. She decides to share her resources with everyone else in the class.

Somehow, while Clementine is looking for decorations in the basement laundry room, Mosturizer gets lost. The kitty is still missing the next morning, and Clementine is too heartsick to go to school on Friday. She abandons any thought of the bike rally, directing her creative energy toward making lost kitten posters instead. By the afternoon she has no kitten, and she has let down all of her classmates by not delivering the decorations she promised. But Friday was the day everyone was supposed to write in her booklet! She can't bear to look at it when Margaret drops it off.

Clementine also can't bear to go to the bike rally on Saturday, and Sunday brings a surprise: On the front page of the Boston Globe Living Section is a story about how nearly a hundred bikes in a fund-raising rally were covered with Missing Kitten posters, thanks to the efforts of a concerned student. Only one student is organized enough to do such a thing: Margaret!

By the end of the book Clementine can't believe how lucky she is to have such a good friend, to have her kitten back (thanks to all of the publicity), and to have received such nice compliments from her classmates in her booklet. She decides to thank everyone in her class by giving them I.O.U.'s for pet portraits, and she rewards Margaret by filling up Margaret's Friend of the Week booklet (which, sadly, was nearly empty).

Clementine, Friend of the Week humorously portrays Clementine's discovery that making others happy is the best reward.

Synopsis:

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.

Synopsis:

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?

Synopsis:

I did a mean thing.

A very mean thing.

I HATEand#160;that I did it.

But I did.

This is worse than

carrot juice on a cupcake

or a wasp on my pillow

or a dress thatandrsquo;s too tight at the neck.

In the third installment from the team who created Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie and Like Bug Juice on a Burger, Eleanorandrsquo;s relationship with her best friend, Pearl, experiences its first growing pains. When a glamorous new student transfers to school, at first Eleanorandrsquo;s excited about the possibility of a new friend. But when Pearl is assigned to be the new girlandrsquo;s buddy, Eleanor fears she canandrsquo;t compete. To make matters worse, Eleanorandrsquo;s been chosen for the lead role in the springtime musical, which means she has to sing a solo in front of the entire school!

From overcoming stage fright to having a secret crush, young readers will relate to Eleanor as she navigates the bittersweet waters of growing up.
