School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-Ann Martin's series involves four friends in the small community of Camden Falls and exhibits her usual mix of impeccable prose and ease with today's slang. In this episode (Scholastic, pap. 2008), Flora, Ruby, Olivia, and Nikki find books that are mysteriously left at their door-Robert O'Brien's "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of N.I.M.H," Dorothy Canfield Fisher's "Understood Betsy," "Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry" by Mildred Taylor, and several others. Each book comes with a message telling them to read the book and do something new. Who could be sending these books? Before long, the four friends form a book club. Ariadne Meyers makes each girl's voice unique as well as those of the other characters. She perfectly slips in and out of dialogue and expository text. A must-have for fans of the series.-B.
