Format: Paperback
The Wunderkind Family Series, based on the author’s family, means there is one awesome family with special powers, and cute stories young girls will love. Madison is a fourth grader who is elevated in popularity by fifth grader Sophia. Instantly, Madison’s brothers nickname her “Little Miss Popular” and soon the name is a perfect fit. Madison ignores her friends, mainly because she does not want to annoy Sophia and lose her place as a cool girl. Most of Madison’s actions come from her fear of upsetting whomever she is with at that moment. .

Madison narrates the story. At many times she speaks directly with the reader. The character/narrator speaking directly to the reader puts the reader into the story in a role they would not choose. For children’s books, speaking directly to the child removes any possibility of the child seeing itself in the story and as a character of their choosing.

The story begins at the end, waiting in the principal’s office, wondering what is happening. This is a fine technique if Madison had not explained the entire story in chapter one. Before the story begins, she has told you what will happen. Why read on? Skipping the first two chapters makes for a better story. Chapter 3 begins three days prior. Madison is a spunky young girl. She views being popular as a step up in the middle grade world. Soon she questions this world, begins to figure out the uselessness, and yet takes a little longer to remove herself. Her progression felt realistic.

As narrator, Madison took to defining some of the words she used. This acts like a bump in the road, pulling the reader’s attention out of the story and onto a word definition. Most of the words are understandable in context. Stating definitions takes away the child’s opportunity to use a dictionary.
