Synopses & Reviews
Meet Martin Bridge--a most special and ordinary boy whose well-meant plans sometimes go awry. In three illustrated stories, Martin encounters two bus drivers with very different ways of relating, makes a tough decision about a friend's pet and takes on an extremely competitive model rocket project that almost costs him a friendship. The daily rhythms, struggles and triumphs of childhood -- at home, at school and with friends -- are evoked with warmth, understanding, honesty and humor.
The first book in the Martin Bridge chapter-book series about a boy whose well-meant plans sometimes go awry.
