Overview

After her triumph at the science fair—winning a special award even though she wasn't technically old enough to enter—Bernadette is ready to continue on with grade three. Her friendship with Annie, Keisha and Megan—also known as "the Lunch Bunch"—continues to blossom. They even befriend an elderly neighbor, Mrs. March, and her dog, Lady. After helping Mrs. Marsh with her garden, Bernadette is rewarded with her heart's desire, a puppy from Lady's new litter.

When Bernadette's best friend Jasmine comes to visit for the Christmas holidays, Bernadette is thrilled. They go to the science center and conduct an experiment where they turn snow into ice cream. Bernadette is so happy to be spending time with Jasmine that she ignores all of her new friends. Annie, Keisha and Megan are not impressed, and Bernadette has to work hard to realize her mistake, and to prove to the Lunch Bunch that she values their friendship.

Editorial Reviews

Quill & Quire
"The text is broken up by Mélanie Allard's engaging black-and-white illustrations—the inclusion of which is a solid technique to help younger readers bridge the gap between picture books and junior novels."
School Library Journal
Gr 1–3—Third-grader Bernadette Inez O'Brian Schwartz wants a puppy. As this installment opens, she and her friends offer to help an elderly woman who has a dog keep her yard neat and are invited back. Then the plot quickly focuses on winter vacation and the visit of Bernadette's best friend, Jasmine, who has moved away. Predictably, Bernadette ignores her new friends, the Lunch Bunch, and alienates two of them when she declines their invitations. The girls are a comfy group, but the theme isn't particularly fresh. The story comes full circle with Mrs. Marsh planting in the spring—and the birth of puppies. On the last page, Bernadette's mother says "Maybe" to getting a dog. Black-and-white illustrations are scattered throughout. This is an accessible chapter book, but nothing sets it apart from other titles about girls and their friendships.—Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City
Kirkus Reviews

When her former best friend Jasmine comes to visit during winter break, third-grader Bernadette ignores her current friends, hurting their feelings and coming close to breaking up the Lunch Bunch.

Bernadette, Keisha, Megan and Annie not only eat together, they plan special menus to make their lunchtimes more interesting. Walking to and from school together, Bernadette and Keisha keep a special dog-watching notebook. They even carry out a project of cleaning and beautifying an elderly neighbor's yard. When Bernadette realizes how much she values these new friends—especially Keisha, who seems the most upset—she comes up with the perfect lunch strategy to make things right. In this sequel to Bernadette and the Lunch Bunch (2009), Glickman again portrays elementary-school life realistically. Bernadette's difficulties juggling her friendships, her longing for a puppy of her own and her discomfort when her classmates think she's responsible for the month-long Healthy Food Challenge will feel familiar. The relatively long, mostly un-illustrated chapters are best suited for the most able chapter-book readers, who will appreciate the challenge and are less often served by material appropriate to their lives and experiences.

A satisfying sequel leaving room for more. (Fiction. 7-9)
