Overview

Lizzie looked out the window at the pair of friends talking and laughing on their way to the bus. She wished making a new friend were as easy as making cheese and crackers.

Lizzie Gardner must begin at a new school in the middle of the year. She hopes this might be the school where she'll finally be brave enough to make some friends. But before long, the class bully starts calling Lizzie names, and Lizzie is too shy to stick up for herself. That's when the school weirdo—Ivana the Terrible—comes to her rescue.

Lizzie is afraid of Ivana at first. But soon Lizzie discovers that she and Ivana have a lot in common, especially their love for animals and reading. Maybe Lizzie will make a best friend after all.

C. Anne Scott tells a tender and humorous story about an unusual friendship. Stephanie Roth's sweet and funny illustrations perfectly depict these endearing misfits.

When third grader Lizzie Gardener must live temporarily with her grandmother, her greatest fears have to do with making friends in her new school.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Scott's (Old Jake's Skirts) overwritten novel introduces a shy third-grader who starts at a new school in the spring. Lizzie moves in with her Texas grandmother from Florida while her widower father is off on a Coast Guard cruise. Her classmates include some overly familiar stereotypes: smart-mouthed Brady nicknames her "Lizard" and teases her relentlessly but, of course, he is actually sweet on her; the snooty, nearly identical Tiffy and Crystal badmouth their peers and suggest that only they are worthy of Lizzie's friendship. Predictably, the newcomer ignores their advice and befriends the primary target of their ridicule--outspoken, unruly coifed Ivana, who shares Lizzie's passion for reading. Heavy-handed imagery ("The house was a dance of color, like a flower bouquet," describes Ivana's home) and belabored prose (in response to some good news, "Mrs. Lula's students went goofy, making faces at each other, laughing, saying "YES," and squeaking each other's balloon hats") diminish the novel's credibility and keep readers at arm's length. Though often cumbersome, this tale may offer some comfort to those facing a new school experience, and Roth's affectionate drawings of the buddies helps to keep the tone light. Ages 7-10. (Oct.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature - Nancy Partridge
How do you make friends when you're the new kid in school? It's not always easy. Third-grader Lizzie Gardner would rather read books than stand up to the likes of Tiffy and Crystal, who can be very silly sometimes. Brady Brootski, the class clown, is another challenge. But Lizzie would dearly love to have a best friend, and maybe Ivana the Terrible won't really turn her to stone. This is a very sweet chapter book just a notch or two above an easy reader and not quite as sophisticated as the Hannah and the Angels books, for example. The plot is fast moving and realistic. Some of it is written in the form of letters that Lizzie and Ivana write to each other as assigned journal buddies, which really adds interest. There are some lovely bits of writing, and the black and white illustrations match the text perfectly. This is an intelligent, satisfying book for the chapter-book crowd.
Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Many students will identify with this slice of school life. On her first day of third grade at Morningside Elementary, Lizzie Gardener's teacher seats her right behind "Ivana the Terrible." Unlike most of the children in the class, Ivana dresses in striped overalls and big hiking boots, and she has wild black hair. "She can turn you to stone with one stare," one girl warns. "She's so scary...she even cracked the mirror in the girls' bathroom," cautions another. Anxious to fit in at school, Lizzie hopes she can avoid her classmate. But when the two become journal partners and must write to each other everyday, Lizzie soon learns that there isn't anything "terrible" about Ivana and they become fast friends. Children will enjoy the handwritten journal entries scattered throughout the title. Animated pencil illustrations add to the playful flavor of this chapter book for transitional readers.-Carolyn Stacey, Jefferson County Public Library, Golden, CO Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    A Great Book

    I gave this book 5 stars because it is a great book. Tiffy and Crystal really are a bunch of laughs.They only tell Lizzie about the bad things other children do in the class,but they did not tell her what they LOVE to do.That is TALK ALOT!

    a pretty good story

    I gave Lizard Meets Ivana the Terrible 4 stars because it's a good story with good characters. In this story there is a girl named Lizzie and she is a new student. Then her teacher introduces her to the new class. Then she saw a girl that her hair stuck out all over her head. It was Ivana. Lizzie sat by Ivana and she was Lizzie's writing buddy. When I got in the middle of the book, Lizzie invited Ivana to dinner. In the picture I saw Ivana's face, her face doesn't look mean, she looks nice. That's all I'm going to tell you. You should read this book to find out what happens.

    My daughter loved this book

    This was one of seven books that were read over the course of the year in a girls' school book club and it was her favorite. It really hits home with the 3rd grade audience. It was humorous and fun. We definitely recommend it!! A fairly easy and fast read. Holds your interest.
