Steven Bennett thinks he has the worst luck. He's had to move to a new town and leave his best friend and Little League team behind. What's worse, Steven's mother wants him to be friends with the girl next door-- tutu-wearing Lucinda. Yeah, right. Nothing can make prissy Lucinda and sports-and-science buff Steven see eye to eye--until they find an orphaned baby squirrel. They name him Lucky, but his luck could run out unless Steven and Lucinda care for him... together. Sparks fly (and so do laughs) in this funny novel about finding things in unexpected places--especially new friends. The text of and pictures in Steven's science journal are included and described.
Stories of two inventive sisters at play, and at odds, ZELDA AND IVY is packed with sugar and sass -- a first-rate original! Zelda and Ivy are fox sisters with a flair for the dramatic. Their exploits unfold with plenty of sugar and sass in this spirited trio of stories.
In a fresh and funny new companion to the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award winner, the fox sisters team up with their friend Eugene in three spy-rific adventures. After Zelda, Ivy, and their best friend Eugene watch the new Secret Agent Fox movie (some more bravely than others), they are inspired to do a little detective work themselves. With top-secret agent names chosen and notebook in hand, they're ready to get to the bottom of neighborhood mysteries. But when a rainstorm threatens to ruin the agents' campout, can the three foxy friends come up with an undercover alternative? Sly humor, lively illustrations, and a genuine eye for the everyday dynamics among siblings make this a perfect choice for beginning readers, whether old fans or new. From the Hardcover edition.
In three short notes, two fox sisters run away from home, bury a time capsule, and take advantage of some creative juice.<P><P> Winner of the Theodore Seuss Geisel Medal
