I had a bad August.
A very bad
As bad as
pickle juice on a cookie.
As bad as a
spider web on your leg.
As bad as the
black parts on a banana.
I hope your August was better.
I really do.
Eleanor's beloved babysitter, Bibi, has to move away to take care of
her ailing father, Eleanor must try to bear the summer without Bibi and
prepare for the upcoming school year. Her new, less-than-perfect
babysitter just isn't up to snuff, and she doesn't take care of things
like Bibi used to. But as the school year looms, it's time for new
beginnings. Eleanor soon realizes that she will always have Bibi, no
matter how far away she is.
a lyrical style with thoughtful and charming illustrations throughout,
this remarkable debut novel tells a poignant story of friendship and
the bittersweet feelings of growing up.
