Don't let this lonely spider frighten you! She just wants to be a family pet--and she thinks she would make a better one than the typical dog or cat. But every time this clever spider tries to impress her chosen family, she scares them instead--until the day she unwittingly enchants them.
Indie Kidd is simply crazy about animals. She feels terrible when her best(est) friend Fee's cat is run over. Poor Fee is lost without her beloved pet, Garfield. Indie will do anything to help her super-sad friend feel glad again. She's ready to put her cheer-up-Fee plan into action. But is Fee ready to have fun yet?
INDIE KIDD CAN'T wait to be a cool grown-up. Actually, she wants to be a cool grown-up right now. Lately Indie's mother has been acting weird and treating her like she's a little kid. Indie thinks it would be cool to get a job and live wherever she wants, just like Caitlin, who rents a room in their house. She even wants to hang out with Caitlin rather than her own friends, who aren't grown up enough to understand how she feels. Little does she know that trying to be a cool grown-up could get her into a whole heap of trouble. From the Trade Paperback edition.
There's no way Indie Kidd would ever want to be without her best(est) friends, Soph and Fee. Indie knows how much fun it is having friends, so she gets to work on the very important project of helping her stepbrother Dylan make some best friends of his own. The trouble is Indie's so busy improving Dylan's image, that she's hardly had time for Soph and Fee. Now they're freezing her out and Indie feels like she's lost her best(est) friends. And ouch that hurts!From the Trade Paperback edition.
He growls at trucks. He snaps at clouds. He barks at rain. Mad Dog McGraw is one mean dog. What's a kid to do? First he tries stilts, but his left stilt gets stuck in a crack; then he tries an umbrella, but the wind only carries him so far. He even tries a cat named Bait--but Bait LOVES Mad Dog! With some hard thinking and a little courage (and a dog biscuit, for good measure), our protagonist comes to a startling realization. Maybe Mad Dog's bark is worse than his bite. The perfect book for kids who worry about dogs, as well as the kids who already love them. Mad Dog McGraw may show his teeth to the wind, but deep down, he's just a pussycat. Picture descriptions added.
Hooray! Gorilla has come to stay- he crashes through the door full of excitement and anticipation. And at first he's not disappointed. The family have thought of everything to make him comfortable. But then it begins to snow. . . and although Gorilla likes the look and taste of snow, he's not a natural at all the snow-related activities they try. With skiing and skating, he wibbles and wobbles all over the place before falling over. "Ooo, ooo, ooo," he cries. He doesn't like it. Even his snowman falls on top of him! So how can the little boy make him feel better? By finding something Gorilla is good at, that's how. And 'Ooo, ooo, ooo', it turns out to be something that's very exciting!
