Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- Those ready for more sustained chapter-book reading will enjoy these three self-contained stories about Josie Smith's adventures. In this third book about her, she remains an appealing character whose lively imagination and irrepressible good will land her in one scrape after another. Her attempts to earn a gift for her teacher, help a new girl who cannot speak English, and deal with her unhappiness over her part in the class play all lead to unexpected results. Josie displays that curious blend of self-interest and concern for others so typical of eight-year-olds. Her complete absorption in the moment and powerlessness in the face of authority will win the instant recognition and sympathy of readers. Delightfully expressive pen-and-ink illustrations and a rhythmic text enhance the book's charm and make it a good read-aloud as well. --Maggie McEwen, formerly at Coffin Elem . School, Brunswick, ME
