Mu daughter is in the 3rd grade and is almost 9. She recently read this and really enjoyed it. She is a good reader, but we usually have to make her go do her daily reading and then when the timer goes off she stops immediately and puts the book away. .. this is the first book she has read where she went ahead and finished the chapter even though the time was up. So, I would say this book was a winner! Check it out!
From School Library Journal Grade 2–4—Eight-year-old Abigail Iris’s three best friends are only children, “Onlies.” She thinks they’re lucky for many reasons, but especially fortunate because their parents let them celebrate their half birthdays. With her half birthday just days away, she convinces her parents to let her mark the event by getting her a kitten. Unfortunately, her older sister is allergic to it. Abigail Iris has spunk and insight, and she employs them with a plan to solve this dilemma. Also, her friend Rebecca will be losing her status when her mother has a baby, leaving Abigail Iris with much to ponder regarding the advantages and disadvantages of having siblings. A companion book to Abigail Iris: The One and Only (Walker, 2009), the story is told from the child’s point of view. Fast-paced conversation, coupled with realistic events, creates a fun read while full-page black-and-white illustrations add interest. Fans of Ramona, Clementine, and Junie B. will embrace this feisty girl.—Helen Foster James, University of California at San Diego (c) Copyright 2010.
