Franny longs for adventure but can't even do a cartwheel. Pru can do a cartwheel but prefers hiding under her quilt making up safety tips. Cat has no use for safety tips but supposedly has ESP. And Ivy has had a seven-year string of bad luck—a Jinx that's about to get a whole lot worse.

The four are thrown together when a pair of mysterious ruby red slippers turn up, along with the fashionably mad Cha-Cha Staccato, who bears a frightening resemblance to a certain wicked witch. . . .

As hilarious as it is original, The Secret Order of the Gumm Street Girls is an unforgettable take on girlhood, piano recitals, The Wizard of Oz, and the dependable everyday magic of true friendship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Secret Order Of The Gumm Street Girls This book is a interesting, crazy adventure of four girls, Cat, Pru, Franny and Ivy. Three of these girls live on gumm street have nothing in common except none of the like each other. Then, out of the blue Ivy Diamond, along with her mother a a seven year string of bad luck show up and everything changes. This book is a story of true friendship. The story of the Gumm Street Girls brings together magic, the wizard of Oz, piano recitals, and more. I hope you like it as much as I did!
