Overview

When an injury slows her down, Marion counts on The Critter Club to help her realize what’s most important.

From violin lessons to training for an upcoming horse competition, Marion is scheduled to the max. Even though she always makes time for her duties at The Critter Club, she is beginning to feel overwhelmed. But when an accident forces Marion to slow down, Marion relies on her friends (the two- and four-legged ones) to cheer her up! As Marion’s ankle heals, she discovers a new talent—and realizes that winning isn’t everything.

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, The Critter Club chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanna Sciarrotta
Marion gets her voice in this fourth installment to the "Critter Club" series. She is busier than ever and trying to find time for school, music, ballet, her horse, and of course the Critter Club! When an unfortunate accident occurs, however, she is forced to slow down and take a much-needed break. With the help of her friends in the Critter Club, she has an important lesson to learn about what is really important in life. This fun-filled, easy to read series is perfect for emergent young female readers. They contain a great dynamic of friendship, real life scenarios and, of course, a neat little lesson tucked away in the end. These books find a balance between providing chapters for a grown up reading experience, but also including helpful illustrations to add extra understanding along the way. Readers, teachers, and librarians will love the coinciding activities online that they can download and complete with friends. Reviewer: Jeanna Sciarrotta

Marion takes a Break


  • Meet the Author

    Callie Barkley loves animals. As a young girl, she dreamed of getting a cat or dog of her own until she discovered she was allergic to most of them. It was around this time that she realized the world was full of all kinds of critters that could use some love. She now lives with her husband and two kids in Connecticut. They share their home with exactly ten fish and a very active ant farm.
    Marsha Riti illustrated the picture book The Picky Little Witch by Elizabeth Brokamp. She lives in Austin, Texas, where she likes to take long walks, stopping frequently to pet neighborhood kitties.
