Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This sequel enhances the story, gives deeper life to characters, and provides a greater depth in the novel’s setting.” School Library Journal
“Quirky and whimsical…. Reminiscent of classic tales such as Pippi Longstocking and Mary Poppins, this book will appeal to readers who enjoy subtle humor sandwiched by warm-hearted lessons.” School Library Connection
“Narrator Katherine Kellgren returns, channeling Ms. Rapscott and her five students…Kellgren hits the perfect tone for the supremely confident headmistress and gives each girl—from the loud, demanding Bea to the surprising leader, Mildred—a voice true to her personality. Life lessons are served up with humor and a touch of magic as the girls learn that making mistakes on purpose may send them to the bottom but will give them the grit and confidence they need to climb to the top.” AudioFile
