Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"New characters, such as the hyperactive “Owen 1,” keep the story fresh, but readers will most enjoy Grace’s angst-ridden first-person narrative, delivered with her usual comic touch. Cartoon illustrations (and directions for creating a zine) enliven the text and help to showcase Grace’s artistic talent. A sixth adventure is planned."—Booklist
Children's Literature - Patricia Williamson
Just Grace is just fabulous. The story is in the form of a diary that Grace is writing about her days, her thoughts, and her crazy ideas. Embedded within the story is information that will make a girl go adventurous and find all the materials around the house to make things within the cover and story. In this story Grace shows how to make a "zine" a mini-book that can be created without much cutting and absolutely no staples or gluing, unless it is to illustrate a page. Grace simply walks you through her life in a very simplistic way that is enjoyable and random. As each thing happens in her life, she thinks through what was good, what was bad, and what could have been worse. Then, the picture of her life continues in stream of consciousness. This story centers around her project for school called "Foods Of the World." Grace decides to do the flavors of potato chips. Grace walks in and out of friendships in a very normal way and despite herself makes things right when she needs to. If girls have been reading Amber Brown or Judy Moody books, they will like the style of "Just Grace" books, this book being one of a series. The author illustrates the books herself and the raw drawings lend themselves well to the story. No part of it is so long or drawn out that if you could not attend to the story for long a reader would be okay because it is easily re-engaged at a later sitting. Reviewer: Patricia Williamson
School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—Grace's third-grade class is researching foods of the world, a topic suggested by the principal after he overhears Owen, the class troublemaker, ridiculing another student's lunch. That night, Grace's neighbor gives her a bag of delicious roast-chicken-flavored potato chips from France, so she decides to study unusual potato chips of the world. Harper once again gets the emotions just right. The child is jealous when her dad seems more interested in her best friend's project than in hers. She gains a greater respect for troublemaking Owen when she misbehaves, and instead of tattling on her, he takes the blame. As in the previous books, Grace's narration meanders somewhat, and the text is broken up into short sections with small, cartoon sketches, diagrams, and lists. As an added highlight, this title includes instructions on how to make a zine (after Grace receives one as a gift). This easy chapter book is sure to be popular with fans of the series, but it also stands alone.—Jackie Partch, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR

    Grace's class has a new project - find out about unusual food around the world.

    Grace decides to research potato chips. Grace finds herself a little jealous when her dad seems more interested in helping her best friend, Mimi, with her hot dog project than he does with Grace's potato chips. Grace also learns to make a zine, sneaks away to talk to her neighbor, and does something in class she never thought she'd do. Grace is in for another fun adventure!

    This is the fifth JUST GRACE book and the first one I've read. The nice thing about the book is that I didn't feel lost, so a reader could pick up any title and jump right in.

    There are lots of illustrations, because Grace loves to draw, so the book would be great for readers who enjoy the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID books and are looking for other humorously illustrated books. The book even includes instructions on how readers can make their own zine just like Grace.

    There were a few times that I felt that Grace's wisdom was a little wise beyond her years, but for the most part she is very funny and has some great observations about life that will be sure to leave readers laughing.

    Grace is perfect for fans of CLEMENTINE and ALLIE FINKLE. She somewhat reminds me of a less-crazy Clementine - Grace seems not quite as wild, which I think readers who might not relate to Clementine's crazy antics will appreciate.

    Readers are sure to find Grace a fun, relatable character. Just be careful when you read this one - you'll want to make sure you have potato chips handy!
