Reviews

"Large margins, short sentences and appropriate vocabulary make this an accessible and non-threatening starting place for readers new to chapter books... Readers will be able to relate to the struggle of growing up and changing interests." Recommended
Kate Hachborn, CM: Canadian Review of Materials
"The characters are believable and well-rounded and the dialogue is natural... Readers moving into early chapter books will relate to Shelly's conflict" Rated E, excellent, enduring, everyone should see it!
Tricia Reese, Resource Links
"Hutchins tells the semisweet story without heavy-handedness, while Cathcart provides a bevy of soft black-and-white sketches."
