I read this to the PandaBat's first grade class. It was a hit. They loved the set-up, and the pay-off was successful. I even think they appreciated the tasteful illustrations.

One of the best picture books ever. I wish Ogburn would write a million of them.

Scarlett Angelina may seem like any other child. She looks like her mom's family and she looks like her dad's.

The beginning of the story introduces the audience to the Wolverton-Manning family. They live in a mansion with maids, butlers, a French teacher, and more.

Scarlett Angelina Wolverton-Manning is a beautiful Halloween book, which is what attracted me to it in the first place.

I will say that this a wonderfully well-written book, which is not surprising, because Jacqueline K. Ogburn was a children's book editor before she became an author.

As I said, this is a

Scarlett is abducted from her school by a man who says he is her driver. She tells him repeatedly that she must be home before
dark and her parents repeat this caution, but she DOESN'T make home in time. There is a good reason!

My kids loved this book so much, they made me read it twice in a row. I loved it too! In my 6 yr. old's words, "She lied about the animals and that's bad, but it was funny!!!!" (With a devilish laugh) The pictures were fun too. Excellent to read again and again--I highly recommend.
