Editorial Reviews

This entertaining entree into the world of chapter books will leave young readers laughing, pondering and eagerly anticipating Grace's next adventure."- Bookpage "Easy for readers to relate to, and her voice is consistently funny, frank, and believable."- The Horn Book "Short chapters, frequent black-line illustrations, and Harper's sure voice as the blossoming Grace mark this as one of the better series for emerging chapter-book readers."- Booklist Just Grace and the Snack Attack "[R]eaders will appreciate her straightforward, honest discussion of strong emotions they'll be sure to relate to." - Horn Book Just Grace Goes Green "Girls who are settling into chapter book series featuring Clementine and Judy Moody will love the fast pace and familiar school and family situations. . . . Harper's sketches add interest and break up the text, leaving the new reader time to pause and smile."- Horn Book Just Grace Walks the Dog "Grace's cartoon illustrations and charts enliven the conversational, first-person text. . . Her ruminations about the ways that people-and animals-may not be what they seem will provide both entertainment and food for thought for a wide range of readers."- Kirkus Reviews "Harper has created a quick enjoyable read in this third 'Grace' book."- Library Media Connection Still Just Grace "Harper's strength is her understanding of third-grade angst? she explores with a comic touch? Suggest this reassuring look at friendship and family to fans of Judy Moody and Clementine." - Booklist "Dealing with the problems of friendship and change in a lively way? a good addition to the middle-grade shelves." -School Library Journal Just Grace Booksense Summer Selection 2007*"The kids come alive in the story, and Harper, the author of several previous books, including the graphic novel Fashion Kitty (2005), enhances the comical goings-on with sparkling cartoon sketches. Equally delightful is the wry voice of energetic Just Grace, who never misses an opportunity to point out the injustices life has dealt her. She's a hero through and through. Give this to fans of Ann Nagda's Meow Means Mischief (2003) or anyone looking for a funny book." - Booklist, starred review"Grace is a funny, mischievous protagonist who should easily find a place in the pantheon of precocious third graders. Fans of Amber Brown, Clementine, and Judy Moody will love her." - School Library Journal "
