Reviews

Gr 2-4-Just Grace, so named by a hassled teacher who had four Graces in her classroom, is a precocious third grader with a gift: she feels empathy for those around her. In this third book about the endearing character, she describes her quest to convince her parents that she's responsible enough to get a dog. Along the way she solves a mystery, helps a neighbor save his sick dog, and makes friends with the left-out Grace L. Perfect for beginning chapter book readers, the text is broken up by headings, cartoons (drawn by Grace), lists, charts, and journal entries. It flows smoothly and easily. Youngsters will identify with the protagonist as she struggles to communicate via flashlight Morse Code with her best friend and creates a cardboard dog (on a skateboard) to prove she can take care of a real one. Everything rings true in the book-Just Grace's voice is real and childlike; she feels frustration with her parents and best friend, fears going to the principal's office, and is saddened by others in pain. Although this book can stand alone, readers will want to know all about Grace and will go back to the other titles in the series, while looking forward to more.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

"[R]uminations about the ways that people--and animals--may not be what they seem...provide...entertainment and food for thought." Kirkus 3/15/08
