Praise for Princess Posey
"Greene proves herself yet again to be an adept chronicler of the ups and downs of the first year of school, and her simple, straightforward prose gives just the right amount of emotional heft to these mini- dramas, neither exaggerating nor reducing Posey’s situation. . . . Posey continues to be a winning protagonist, and her escapades are a series worth having on hand." —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

K-Gr 2—First-grader Posey is excited about the approaching holiday. She is convinced that Santa will bring her a real magic wand to make things right for the people she loves, but she worries about the tiny bit of naughtiness that she has concealed from her mother. The wise adults in her life-Mother and Gramps-help her see that she can work her own kind of magic through acts of kindness. This is an easy-to-read early chapter book that will appeal to girls, whether they already know Posey or not. Boys, not so much.—Virginia Walter, UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies
Kirkus Reviews
All Posey wants from Santa is a real magic wand. Posey and her classmates are excited about the upcoming winter holidays, and Posey sure is ready. She has written her letter and knows that Santa will understand that she needs a wand that can really perform magic. But when Posey accidentally hurts her toddler brother, she does not tell her mother the truth and is haunted by the fact that Santa will know that she was bad, for goodness' sake! Posey is a delightfully imperfect little first-grader, and others will empathize with her plight. A subplot about Gramps and his new love interest, neighbor Mrs. Romero, adds much to the story, making it more than just a story about a little girl. When Mrs. Romero shares a childhood picture of Barbara, her little girl who died years ago, the twist is revealed with calm, believable emotion. And later, when Posey creates a gift picturing Barbara with angel wings, it is a powerful moment that is free of any emotional manipulation. Telling this story with simple vocabulary, in oversized font and 10 very short chapters, Greene makes this rich tale accessible to the earliest readers. Showing no signs of flagging in this seventh series entry, she continues to develop winning characters in realistic situations. No wand needed--pure magic for emerging readers. (Fiction. 5-8)

Read an Excerpt

Santa knows...

A man with a bushy white beard and a red coat was driving the car next to them. He had on a red hat with a white pom-pom.

“It sure looks like him,” said Gramps.

“He’s here!” Posey shouted. She bounced up and down. “He’s really here! Just like the song says!”

The song.

Posey stopped bouncing. 

Santa knew when they were bad or good. That must mean he knew what Posey did.

What if he didn’t come to her house on Christmas?
