Publisher Comments:

The Sisters Eight are back in a new adventure! This time, Georgia gets her chance to be the hero--if she doesn't completely mess things up!

In the first two installments of the Sisters Eight, we met the sisters (octuplets) and their eight cats. We discovered Mommy and Daddy disappeared (or died) and that to find out what happened to them, each girl must discover her power and gift. Annie and Durinda both found theirs. We also learned that the girls' nosy neighbor The Wicket is very interested in what Mommy was working on before she disappeared (or died).

In this, the third book, the plot thickens: Mrs. McGullicudy, the girls' teacher, is AWOL, and the substitute teacher is too beautiful to be believed (in your narrator's humble opinion.) Does her beautiful facade hide an evil soul? (These are books. Of course it does.) And Georgia makes a blunder that could keep the girls' from ever finding their parents. Are the Sisters Eight doomed to live alone forever?

Synopsis:

The ninth volume and dramatic conclusion of the magical series The Sisters Eightand#160;about octuplet girls who are off on an adventure to rescue Mommy and Daddy!

Synopsis:

A rather large problem has befallen the Huit girls. (Sisters, actually. Octuplets to be exact.) One particular New Years Eve, the girls wait for their mommy to bring them hot chocolate and their daddy to return with more wood for the fire. But they dont. Mommy and Daddy, that is. Theyre gone. Poof! Maybe dead—no one knows for sure.

You must see the problem here. Eight little girls on their own, no mommy or daddy to take care of them. This is not a good thing.

So now these little girls, must take care of themselves. Get to school, cook the meals, feed the cats (eight of them, too), and pay the bills. They cant ask for help, oh no. Any self-respecting adult would surely call in social services, and those well-meaning people would have to split them up. After losing their parents, being split up would be completely unbearable.

At the same time, the question remains:What happened to Mommy and Daddy? The Sisters Eight (as they are called, affectionately and otherwise) are determined to find out. Luckily, they do seem to have someone or something helping them. Notes keep appearing behind a loose brick in the fireplace.

Its a good old-fashioned mystery with missing (or dead) parents, nosy neighbors, talking refrigerators, foul-smelling fruitcake (is there any other kind?), and even a little magic. Eight little girls, eight cats, and one big mystery—let the fun begin!

Durindas Dangers, wherein Durinda, second in line, discovers her power and gift. Boy, is her power a doozy!

Synopsis:

The penultimate episode in the Sisters Eight saga! Finally! Zinnias turn has arrived. The poor girl has been waiting for her time in the spotlight quite long enough. Really, it would be cruel to make her wait any longer. What will her power and her gift be? Will either of them prove to be as much of a doozy as she has been hoping for? Theres only one way to find out: Let her story begin. Its finally Zinnia Time!

Synopsis:

Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no!and#160;May is almost over and that means only one thing: Petal's month is about to begin. For most people, this would be a good thing. They would look forward to discovering their gift and their power. But not our dear Petal. As far as Petal is concerned, it could stay May forever.

At least the sisters have some excitement in their future: The wedding of Aunt Martha and Uncle George will bring them, the Petes, and the cats to Paris, where fun--and a little bit of danger--will come as surely as the changing of the month.

Lovely books about 8 sisters (you guessed that, right?!) and how they learn to thrive without their missing parents (spoiler: don't worry!), as well as learn their own magical powers. In each book, there's a mystery, challenges, inspiration, a robot/refrigerator love story, friends, enemies, and girl power.

What I love about these books are not only the interesting characters and their very real ways of interacting with each other, and the beautifully creative illustrations, but that each sister is special in her own way. I think many young girls today feel as if they aren't special, or don't matter. They do, very much so. This book series is an excellent way to share that each person is unique, important, and interesting.
