The Secret Order of the Gumm Street Girls by Elise Primavera

With all these snow days, I’ve had time to catch up on some reading. I hope you have, too! Maddox, a fourth grader in Mrs. Jerome’s room, shared this book with the class a few weeks ago and it sounded interesting enough for me to buy it for the library. I read it yesterday and today, and it was incredibly exciting and wacky. If you are a fan of The Wizard of Oz, you have to read this book! Four girls who live in a town named Sherbet become friends and have an amazing adventure involving some wicked witches, ruby and silver slippers, talking potatoes, and a cute pair of smart dogs. The author has a very conversational tone which brings you right into the story, and the black and white drawings every few pages add to the fun.

    This book is so amazing, but really wacky. Even my mom couldn’t follow it and she usually can. i really think that Madison Drapeau would like it.

      Mia, I agree with you that this book is WACKY. I really loved the beginning, and then I felt that it went a little bit “OFF”… I felt that it was a book that kids would like more than adults because the ending was so outrageous. It is definitely a good book for kids who love The Wizard of Oz to read, since it contains so many tie-ins to that book/movie. I’m glad you read it and enjoyed it!!
