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.

Synopsis:

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:

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.

Mrs. Pidgeonand#8217;s second grade class has a lot to celebrate in February: presidentsand#8217; birthdays, Valentineand#8217;s Day, and school vacation. Of course, the students are talking about their awesome vacation plans every chance they get. It can be hard to focus on subtraction problems when youand#8217;re heading to Hawaii or Florida in seventeen minus seven days! But most of the class (twelve minus three of them, in fact) will be staying home during vacation. Can Gooney Bird Greene keep spirits up while everyone is feeling down? Gooney Bird has a great idea that sends her classmates and her on a snowy spin through U.S. history and geography!

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!
