Overview

Cody and the Fountain of Happiness (Cody Series #1) by Tricia Springstubb, Eliza Wheeler

Middle-grade readers drawn to Judy Moody or Clementine will find a funny and charismatic companion in Cody, star of this delightful new series.

For whimsical Cody, many things are beautiful, especially ants who say hello by rubbing feelers. But nothing is as beautiful as the first day of summer vacation, and Cody doesn’t want to waste one minute of it. Meanwhile, teenage brother Wyatt is moping over a girl, Mom is stressed about her new job as Head of Shoes, Dad is off hauling chairs in his long-distance truck, and even camp has been closed for the summer. What to do? Just when all seems lost, Cody bumps into a neighborhood boy named Spencer who is looking for a runaway cat. With a new friend and a soon-to-be-found cat, Cody is on her way to the fountain of happiness.

In the book, Cody and the Fountain of Happiness, a girl named Cody (a very interesting girl) solves some mysteries and problems with her family. She is a lover of animals and all wildlife, and even likes to feed the ants near her house. In the text she says that she can speak to animals and when the cat says, "mew, mew", she says that it is cat language for " what's the big fuss". That's just one example of how she talks to animals. My favorite part of the story was when Cody found MewMew (the neighbor's cat) and she understood him saying "What's the big fuss?" because he was lost and everybody was worried. I would recommend this book to younger kids because of the big print, adventurous theme and the lower level of reading. I think they would like this because I'm inferring Cody is about 8 years old and lots of little kids like the things that Cody likes to do in this book. I rated it 4 stars because I really liked how Cody could figure her way out of a problem every time and I connected to her love of animals because I love animals too.
