Just Grace and the Trouble with Cupcakes
It's time for the school fair and Just Grace's class has chosen a cupcake theme. But the fair's highlight, a cupcake competition, causes quite a stir when Grace's gets paired with dreadful Owen 1 and not with best pal, Mimi. Grace is devastated. And just when she thinks things can't get worse, her team votes down her idea to build a cupcake Eiffel Tower, in favor of building Spiderman.
It's a challenging time for Grace. Will she be able to overcome her disappointment and lead her team onward? Will Grace's team ever figure out how to make a Spiderman out of cupcakes?
Meet third-grader Grace Stewart, who gets stuck with the name “Just Grace” when she tries to distinguish herself from the three other Graces in her class. Grace is plenty different, though. She has a “teeny-tiny superpower,” for instance—she can tell if someone is unhappy and often tries to fix it. But sometimes her good intentions backfire...
Grace loves cats. She also loves taking pictures of cats and drawing Not-So Super comics. She doesn’t like Sammy Stringer, a boy in her class. She’s got lots and lots of ideas, and when her neighbor’s cat goes missing, Grace does her best to make Mrs. Luther feel less lonely. But as the mystery of the missing cat continues, Grace’s well-intentioned plan backfires, and she finds herself in a bit of trouble. Maybe, just maybe, Sammy Stringer will help her through.
Still Just Grace
A fun new boy has just moved in next door to Grace’s best friend, Mimi. When Grace has to go away on a family trip during school, she is terrified that when she comes back Mimi will be best friends with Max instead! After her trip, not only does it seem her fear has come true, but Mimi is even friends with the disgusting Sammy. Now Just Grace has to team up with two other Graces in her third-grade class for a school project, including the Big Meanie.
Just Grace Walks the Dog
Everyone’s favorite Grace is back. And this time she has a dog. Unfortunately, he’s only made of cardboard and rides a skate board. Grace is determined though to prove to her parents that she is responsible and dependable enough to get a real dog. Things you learn in this book: 1. Sometimes it is okay to be sneaky if you don't get caught. 2. How to do flashlight Morse code. 3. What happened at school that was exciting: nothing. 4. How it feels to walk into your class after going to the principal’s office! 5. Many other things, but most important, how to convince your parents to MAYBE let you get a dog. A real one, not one made of cardboard.
Just Grace Goes Green
Lots of exciting things are happening to Grace and her friends. Most exciting of all, Mimi’s older cousin Gwen is coming to stay with Mimi, and Miss Lois’s class is GOING GREEN! For their “green” project, Grace and Mimi aim to inspire their friends and classmates to conserve plastic bottles. But a far more important issue is that Gwen has taken a strong liking to Mimi’s favorite stuffed toy, Willoughby. Just Grace uses her empathy superpower to figure out ways to make her best friend feel better, and she makes a difference for the environment too. Yard sales, toy owls, decorated plastic water bottles, flaming onion rings, and a very entrepreneurial Sammy Stringer make this another winning entry in the JUST GRACE series.
