A Whole Bunch of Fun!

No capes or superpowers, nothing supernatural—just all the everyday-wonderful, so called ordinary stuff of growing up. This is what kids will find in the adventures of six kids and one dog, who are the Banana Bunch.

There are picnics, games of SPUD and hide-and-go-seek, and a race to catch up with the ice cream truck... but when the bunch decides that their club treasury needs a little fattening up—presto!—it’s time for The Magic Show. They gather props, practice card and coin tricks, and perfect their mind-reading skills. But can they really make Scruffy vanish into thin air?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
The “Banana Bunch” is a group of friends—Lucas, Sam, Jack, Molly, Sue, Scott, and Scruffy, Molly’s dog. Two pages at the beginning of the book have illustrations and the names of each one. They all decide to have a picnic, and after eating, they play hide-and-seek. Molly closes her eyes and counts, and when she opens her eyes, it seems that she is all alone in the park. She cannot find anyone so she gets Scruffy to help her find them. He finds them, and then the group plays a ball game called “Spud.” Scruffy catches the ball, so Molly has to talk to him about it. On their way back to the clubhouse, they see the ice cream truck, and they all get some ice cream. At the clubhouse, Sam thinks that they should have a password. They whisper it to each other, but Scruffy tells the reader the password. Next they want to earn money, so they put together a magic show. They build a stage, and Scruffy helps them dig a hole for their most important magic trick. Scruffy then becomes a big part of their vanishing dog trick. Part of the “I Can Read Chapters” series, this amusing book is a good choice for children who are beginning to read chapter books. Cute cartoon illustrations add to the fun. Reviewer: Vicki Foote; Ages 7 to 9.
