Move over, Junie B. Jones! Piper Green is back in her fourth chapter-book adventure, and it could take her all the way to China. Suitcase? Check. Passport? Check. Magic X-ray vision glasses from the Fairy Tree? Check, check, check!
Piper Green’s class is taking a school trip to China—well, they’re taking a “pretend” trip, on a “pretend” airplane. And when all the kids in the class announce they’ve been on a plane plenty of times, Piper says she has, too. After all, it’s just a pretend trip, right? But when Piper gets chosen to be a flight attendant, her little fib suddenly feels like a very big problem. Could the X-ray vision glasses Piper found in the Fairy Tree help her out?
“Following in the fine tradition of spunky girls—Ramona, Amber Brown, Judy Moody, Clementine—Piper Green is set to make some friends in the early chapter book world.” —School Library Journal’s 100 Scope Notes
“Piper has a winning combination of stubbornness, loyalty, and independence.”
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
