Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

After some of the kids in class get jealous of their classmates who are going away for February vacation, Gooney Bird gets the whole class involved in a map project that makes everyone feel likeand#160;they are going somewhere. This is the 5th chapter book installment in the Gooney Bird series.

Synopsis:

In this seventh installment in the Just Grace series, any day now Graces best friend in the whole world, Mimi, is going to be getting a brand new sister. Grace is really excited, plus nervous, plus worried, plus happy all mixed together. But both Grace and Mimi are in for a surprise when they find out that Mimis family is not adopting a brand new sisterand instead she is getting a brand new brother. (Oh, brother!) And to heighten the excitement even further, Grace is in for another great surprise! This sweet, comical story builds upon the delightful adventures of Grace, a curious and well-meaning third grader who occasionally gets into a little bit of trouble.

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!
