Princess Posey and the First Grade Parade

Product Description:

Author of the Sophie Hartley series of middle-grade chapter books, Greene now offers a series for early chapter-book readers. Nervous about starting first grade in the fall, Posey spends the summer wearing the pink tutu that makes her feel special and worrying that this year she must walk into school and down the first-grade hall alone. It doesn't help that her neighbours, Nick and Tyler, love to tease her about the monster and snakes in that hallway. Midway through the book, Posey jabs Nick's arm with a stick to find out whether the monster really turned his blood to ink. The chapter ends there, leaving readers to wonder whether she drew blood, got into trouble, and/or apologised. The next chapter opens with her sympathetic grandfather drawing out her concerns as he drives her to the store for ice cream. Apart from those lingering questions, the story and illustrations offer a satisfying portrayal of Posey and her world. The black-and-white illustrations are appealing, and the sparkly pink tutu on the book jacket will draw just the right audience. Grades K-2. --Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Reviews

"Six-year-old Posey, in a sparkly pink tutu on the cover, will catch the attention of young emerging readers. Like Miss Lee's invitation, this new chapter book series will be warmly received by youngsters looking for something comfortable and familiar to begin with." -- The Horn Book "This is a sweet book, and children will relate to the child's fears about her new experience and leaving her security tutu behind. There's also a confidence-building ending in which the new first graders are encouraged to be true to themselves." -- School Library Journal "Greene's simple sentences are distinguished by punchy dialogue and sentiments that do justice to a range of emotions, from frustration and nervousness to unadulterated glee. They should go a long way to easing the worries of readers embarking on a new stage in their school life." -- Publisher's Weekly
