Originally published in the U.K. in 2014 and newly illustrated by Hargis this series kickoff introduces Agatha Parrot who has a personality as exuberant as her fuzzy nest of hair. Along with her closest friends Agatha attempts to figure out why the bell atop their school is clanging too many times. Nervous Ellie is certain that a ghost is responsible—and then one is spotted. The jittery Ed Koren–esque energy of Hargis’s black and white artwork dovetails nicely with Agatha’s chatty irreverent narration (of the school’s strict vice principal “She’s got glasses like TV screens and she wears hairy clothes and she thinks everything in the world is unsafe”) as well as the lightly spooky ghost talk pranking and other shenanigans that populate the story. Ages 7–10. Illustrator’s agent: Jennifer Rofé Andrea Brown Literary. (July) " Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
