After reading thisand#160;new book about Just Grace you will know how to . . .
1.and#160;turn your favorite potato chips into a tasty chipwich.

2.and#160;draw and fold up your very own zine, which is a cool little book made from only one piece of paper.

3.and#160;look for and use the special powers of the wish chip.

This book will not help you know how to . . .
1.and#160;do fancy hairstyles for your cat.

2.and#160;make a flower garden in your room.

3.and#160;bake a four- or even five-layer cake.

Synopsis:

Grace can do a lot of things...but can she save the planet???? Or at the very least, can she help her best friend Mimi get her favorite stuffed animal back?

Lots of exciting things are happening to Grace and her friends. Most exciting of all, Mimi's older cousin Gwen is coming to stay with Mimi, and Miss Lois's class is GOING GREEN! For their "green" project, Grace and Mimi aim to inspire their friends and classmates to conserve plastic bottles. But a far more important issue is that Gwen has taken a strong liking to Mimi's favorite stuffed toy, Willoughby. Just Grace uses her empathy superpower to figure out ways to make her best friend feel better, and she makes a difference for the environment too. Yard sales, toy owls, decorated plastic water bottles, flaming onion rings, and a very entrepreneurial Sammy Stringer make this another winning entry in the JUST GRACE series.

Synopsis:

In this seventh installment in the Just Grace series, any day now Grace's 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 Mimi's family is "not "adopting a brand-new sister--and instead she is getting a brand-new brother. (Oh, brother!) And to heighten the excitement even further, Grace is in for "another "big surprise!

Synopsis:

In the seventh installment to the Just Grace Series, Grace and her best friend Mimi can't wait for Mimi's adopted little sister to arrive. But when the baby comes, it's not a sister at all . . . it's a boy!

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.
