Ruby Lu likes her life. Who wouldn't? She has lots of friends, a teacher who's a magician, and now a brand new baby brother, Oscar. Ruby has problems too, though. She gets into a competition with her friend Emma. Emma has a little brother named Sam, and she and Lily constantly compare their brother's developmental processes. Then there's the fact that Lily's going to Chinese school to learn her family's language and she doesn't pick it up immediately. There's Christina, the mean girl on the street who makes fun of everyone for wearing Lily's dad's knitting. And then there was that time that Lily parked the family car in the principal's parking spot... Well, it just adds up to a lot of a problems but also a lot of fine fine solutions too.Read more ›
PROS / Good things:
Very cool and interesting characters
Good reading level (about grades 2-4)
Little flip-book sort of in right-page corners (if you flip pages quickly)
Cool guide about pernounciation & definitions at back
CONS / Bad things:
Some of the illustrations could be better
The right-page corners isn't the best place for a flip-book
A little too quick-moving (Some problems are solved too quickly)
Well, that's about it...if I thought I could come up with a more descriptive review, probably...but overall, get Ruby Lu, Brave and True! Signed, StoryMaker. "Gotta trust the kid's review!"
Then read about every neighborhood character; next, flip the page corners that reveal the secret of a magic trick; learn the true meaning of "LOL"(a computer phrase not included in "Ruby's Fantastic Glossary") . . . oh, and don't miss the Dedication, either.
Ruby Lu will lift any Monday morning gloom, then snuggle close with the kids at bedtime & celebrate reading together. You will soon be caught up in the imaginations of Ruby Lu & the whole menagerie. Lenore Look delivers pure delight, plus *heart-healthy* laughs. One thing sure you'll be scouting the bookstore for the team of Lenore Look & Anne Wilsdorf every time you go shopping.
REVIEWER mcHAIKU claims this book is as sweet as "daan taht" and as satisfying as my last "dim sum" in S.F.'s Chinatown.
