Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The second book in Kate Messner's fun, accessible chapter-book series about the irrepressible Marty, released simultaneously in hardcover and paperback!

Marty McGuire's third-grade class has received a special assignment: Save the Earth! Even more exciting, the best project wins a special award. Marty's pretty sure her classmates' ideas won't stand a chance against her plan to turn the garbage from the school cafeteria into fertilizer--with a little help from the earthworms in her Grandma's garden.

But it turns out that worms are awfully SLOW eaters. And when the critters escape, the whole class--including Marty's supposed teammate and best friend, Annie--starts grumbling. In the end, Marty's dirt takes the prize, and she learns no one can save the earth without two very important things: teamwork and patience.
