Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3–5—The fourth book in Kelly's diary-format series follows the intrepid Lucy Rose from Christmas vacation through the end of fourth grade. The child tries to figure out how to deal with a bully while also putting considerable time and thought into ways to help family friends realize their dream of opening a bakery. Readers new to the series might have trouble figuring out Lucy Rose's complicated network of extended family and friends, although the plot is strong enough to shine through a little confusion. Kelly's use of diction and phrasing usually results in a voice that sounds authentic, but sometimes she gets bogged down in unnecessary words. That said, her exploration of life in a family in which a parent manages to maintain a meaningful relationship with a daughter who lives in another state is unique, and Kelly gives a more nuanced and realistic picture of bullies than one normally sees in fiction for this audience.—Adrienne Furness, Webster Public Library, NY

Format: Paperback
In this installment, Lucy Rose seems more ambitious and ready to take on responsibilities, no matter how small. Her family and friends are featured well in this book as her best friend, Jonique, and her family attempt to open a bakery, which Lucy Rose is all for. Lucy Rose eagerly helps (and the adult reactions to her sometimes overly zealous helpfulness are laugh-out-loudable) and gets ready for each new task- although sometimes it might require a little lie down and perhaps a treat. Lucy Rose has the makings of a fine young preteen and, fingers crossed, we'll get to watch her grow a little more.

And I loved reading it to her. Hysterically funny for adults too with it's witty language and loveable, quirky characters. Also, as DC residents, we loved all of the local references. The Lucy Rose series is my current top 'mom' recommendation for 2nd-3rd graders.
