    captures the fancy of young readers

    Ellen Tebbits is a third grade school girl who finally finds a best friend in Austine Allen, the new student in her class who has moved from California, primarily because the two share a terrible secret. In fact, the two become such close companions that they decide to dress as twins on the first day of fourth grade. Unfortunately, Mrs. Allen is not nearly as good a seamstress as Mrs. Tebbits, and Austine's dress looks terrible. The two argue about it, and thinking that Austine has untied her sash, Ellen slaps Austine in the face. Ellen wants desperately to be Austine's friend again and later finds out that it was actually Otis Spofford who untied her sash, but she is too proud to apologize to Austine. Will the two ever be able to make up? I have read many of Beverly Cleary's books for children, and I will try to be honest. I really liked the three books about Ralph Mouse. The books about Henry Huggins are fairly good. The books about Ramona Quimby, two of which were Newbery Honor books, are, in my estimation, not as good, but they are still all right and probably appeal more to girls than boys. I did not care for the only book for which Clearly won the Newbery Award, Dear Mr. Henshaw. Personally, I thought that it was depressing, but a lot of people have found it useful. However, I did enjoy reading Ellen Tebbits. It presents a realistic picture of elementary school life and deals sensitively with some issues that children of that age face, yet is written in an interesting style that will capture the fancy of young readers.

    I love this book and you will too!!!

    When I read this book, I was way above the age level. But I still enjoyed the novel. The book is about Ellen Tebbits, a well-mannered perfectionist starting third grade. While attending ballet class, she discovers an embarrassing secret about another student, Austine. Ellen also has the same secret, and the two become the best of friends. Then, Ellen makes a terrible mistake she must fix. For stingy children, they can relate to Ellen¿s remorse and unwillingness to formally apologize to Austine. The book was relatable to me, even at age ten. The incidents Ellen goes through- accidentally getting in trouble, ducking bullying from a boy in her class, and struggling to find a secure best friend that will share her interests- even applies to a middle-schoolers. This was a wonderful read, and even though I¿m too old for it, I¿m never too old to laugh at its antics. If you are looking for a hilarious, relatable, easy novel written by a familiar author like Beverly Cleary, buy this book now!!

    Great book real review-@$h

    Hi my name is ash im 11 and this is my 2nd real review and this book was real great because it is an awesome children's book but if you have a questiin about a book and you write it on the reviews and give it low stars, its just hurting the book. Please if youre going to chat put 5 or whatever you think the book was. Just dont put 1 or 2 stars its just hurting the book. Anyway if you liked this book you should check out Andrew Clements, Theodoore Boone and the Hunger Games if your 11 or older. For my next review meet me at the book the Hunger Games. Thanks for reading! Luv u all

    HILARIOUS!!! READ IT!!!

    I absolutly adored this novel. With a 5 star average, you should read it too. I have read it 4 times and I never get tired of it. This story is funny from begining to end and made me cry of laughter. You can relate to Elen so well and deffinatley name a few 'Otises' from school or your neighborhood. Can't go wrong with Cleary, one of my all time favorite comidy authors. Enjoy!
