Ida B: . . . And Her Plans to Maximize Fun, Avoid Disaster, and (Possibly) save the Worldby Katherine Hannigan
Synopses & Reviews
Ida B. Applewood believes there is never enough time for fun.
That's why she's so happy to be homeschooled and to spend every free second outside with the trees and the brook.
Then some not-so-great things happen in her world. Ida B has to go back to that Place of Slow but Sure Body-Cramping, Mind-Numbing, Fun-Killing Torture--school. She feels her heart getting smaller and smaller and hardening into a sharp, black stone.
How can things go from righter than right to a million miles beyond wrong? Can Ida B put together a plan to get things back to just-about perfect again?
Having entered her Black Period, Ida B. Applewood is facing some challenging times and so must turn to her loyal pets, a dedicated teacher, and the beauty of her favorite apple tree to get through it all, in an entertaining coming-of-age tale. Reprint.
