Publisher Comments:

"Emma doesn’t mind being weird," Cynthia says."You should see her bedroom."

My bedroom. I can’t believe what I am hearing.

"It’s all covered with nature posters,"Cynthia adds."It’s just like being in a boy’s room!"

Why is Cynthia calling Emma weird? They are supposed to be friends!

Well, two can play at that game. In Emma’s opinion, Cynthia is kind of a bossy pants. Before long, Emma’s entire third grade class is swapping outrageous nicknames like Jar-head, Shrimpy, and even Porky. While it’s funny at first, Emma begins to see how much name calling can hurt. But before Emma can call for a truce, her teacher beats her to it and makes the most dreaded call of all—the one to everyone’s parents!

Fresh and funny, with a side of wisdom, this second book about eight year-old Emma is sure to entertain many young readers.

Synopsis:

Eight-year-old EllRay is down to one-and-a-half best friends, which leads his little sister to point out the obvious: he needs new friends. A spare, at least. For emergencies. So EllRay decides to audition other boys for the role of Spare Best Friend.

EllRayand#8217;s class is brimming with possibilities, but no one seems to share his exact interests. Whatand#8217;s so great about car parts? And why would anyone think boring instruction manuals are fun to read? But EllRay isnand#8217;t worriedand#151;he can fix any problems once he gets to know each kid. And the only way to get to know them is to come up with fun things to do at recess. When heand#8217;s the Recess King, everyone will want to be his friend!

Synopsis:

EllRay Jakes is a small kidand#160;with big problems!

EllRay Jakes may be the smallest kid in his class at Oak Glen Primary School, but heandrsquo;s also his sister Alfieandrsquo;s big brother. So when it looks like Alfie is being bossed around by a dragon-like girl at her school, EllRay feels responsible. As her older (and wiser!) brother, shouldnandrsquo;t he show her that she should stand up for herself?and#160;

But little sisters and four year old dragons are a bit more complicated than he thought. . . .and#160;
