Best Buds Under Frogs

The Rizzlerunk Club, #1

Written and Illustrated by Leslie Patricelli

First day butterflies, or seriously ill? How does one go from New Girl to Barf Girl in one day? Lily is having a few adventures, moves from the city to the country, starts a new school, and has to make new friends. For a fourth grader that can be a bit intimidating. Add being super shy into the mix and the outcome is not always pretty. What does the shy new girl need to help her out of her shell? What Lily needs is a good friend to make these adventures less painful, and maybe a few frogs? The answer to her problems should be friends; however, not all friends are created equally. The book covers the gamut of elementary woes: loneliness, cliques, clubs, ghosts, pranks, friendships,and bullies. The tiny illustrations give you a bigger picture of what is going on throughout the story. Great read for all ages.
