Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Readers rejoice—Primrose Squarp is back! The wise and curious heroine of the Newbery Honor Book Everything on a Waffle is facing another adventure-filled year in Coal Harbor. Even though her parents, once lost at sea, are home, there's a whole slew of problems and mysteries to keep Primrose—and eager fans—busy. There's Uncle Jack and Kate Bowzer, who may (or may not) be in love. There's Ked, a foster child who becomes Primrose's friend. And there's the new development on the outskirts of town that threatens the Coal Harbor Primrose knows and treasures. The prolific and brilliant Polly Horvath has delivered a masterful sequel to a beloved novel, sure to please old fans and gain new ones.

"Nobody does middle grade like Horvath," declares The Horn Book.

From the Hardcover edition.

Review:

"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.)"
