A perfect charmer…. Hilarious and touching.” —The Boston Globe
“Nobody does middle grade like Horvath.” —The Horn Book Magazine
From the Hardcover edition.
"In this sequel to the Newbery Honor book Everything on a Waffle, young Primrose's peaceful life in the tiny town of Coal Harbor in British Columbia is interrupted by a series of events both positive and negative, including the arrival of Ked, a foster child who becomes her close friend; the clear-cut logging of the local mountain that threatens the woods she loves; and her Uncle Jack's maddening inability to form a romantic connection with Miss Bowzer, even though Primrose is sure they're meant for each other. Kathleen McInerney is a perfect narrator for this material, her versatile voice conveying the unique personalities of the eccentric cast of characters: the young optimistic tones of Primose, the aw-shucks drawl of Bert, the flighty, fluttery voice of Evie, and, most amusingly, the clogged and stuffy voice of Eleanor, Primrose's annoying tattletale classmate, who has a perpetual sinus infection. A well-paced story and likable characters, combined with excellent narration, make this a very enjoyable listen. Ages 9 — 12. A Schwartz & Wade hardcover. (Sept.)"
