Publisher Comments:

Move over, Junie B. Jones and Ivy and Bean! Here comes a lovably energetic little sister with a BIG personality—and an imagination to match!

As the youngest in her family, Dory really wants attention, and more than anything she wants her brother and sister to play with her. But shes too much of a baby for them, so shes left to her own devices—including her wild imagination and untiring energy. Her siblings may roll their eyes at her childish games, but Dory has lots of things to do: outsmarting the monsters all over the house, escaping from prison (aka time-out), and exacting revenge on her sisters favorite doll. And when they really need her, daring Dory will prove her bravery, and finally get exactly what she has been looking for.

With plenty of pictures bursting with charm and character, this hilarious book about an irresistible rascal is the new must-read for the chapter book set.

Count on Grace to cook up a creative compromise just in time to save the day in this tenth installment of the beloved Just Grace series. It's a cupcake-themed adventure, with plenty of fun sprinkled on top.

Synopsis:

Penelope Crumb's best friend Patsy Cline Roberta Watson is becoming best friends with another girl in class, so Penelope decides she needs to win her back.  Compliments and presents fail—and Penelope is afraid she'll lose Patsy Cline forever, so she decides to swipe Patsy's necklace and start a secret museum to remember all the people she cares about, in case they leave her too.  But stealing turns out not to be the best plan, when Grandpa Felix calls the police about his missing camera, forcing Penelope to confess. Now she's lost both Patsy Cline AND her museum.  But in the end she makes a huge personal sacrifice to repair her friendship with Patsy and finds out that drawing pictures—what she likes to do best!—is a way to make a personal museum that doesn't involve any sort of stealing.

Kids Literati, November 26, 2006 (view all comments by Kids Literati)
Clementine by Sara Pennypacker is a hilarious chapter book for second to fourth graders. Clementine is a third grade girl who is not having so good of a week. She has cutting off hair incidents, differences in perception with her teachers and principal when they think she is not paying attention, when really she is paying extra attention to everything. There is the battle of the Great Pigeon War. Not to mention best friends, little brothers who should be named Lima Bean, and ceiling snakes. Clementine is hilarious!
