Editorial Reviews

"Birney has created the kind of series that first- and second-grade readers will love. It’s set in school, the vocabulary is accessible, the font and spacing are generous, and the frequent illustrations tie the story together. New readers will be 'HAPPY-HAPPY-HAPPY' to see this promising new series." -Kirkus Reviews"This title has the same characters, humorous action, and gentle tone of the original, but the large print, short chapters, and numerous cartoon-style illustrations make this one suitable for readers new to chapter books."–School Library Journal
