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?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Wonderful Ida B.! Ida B. is a delightful little girl with a quirky sense of humor and of the world around her. Her humorous descriptions of things that are "more than a million miles from right" will entertain children of all ages. This book does have a sad tone to it, but it is kept in perfect balance by the enchanting Ida B.
