When Abby's class starts a newspaper, Abby envisions herself as the star reporter. But she's only given an advice column to write - and that is not good. (Dear Abby isn't her first choice in nicknames!) Just as she suspects, the column gets Abby in some trouble with her classmates. But, surprisingly, it also gives her a chance to help a friend.

The Amazing Days of Abby Hayes is the series that inspired me to love writing. It was incredibly influential in my early youth and I still own some copies of my favourite books in the series, including this one. I would love it if this series was popular enough that I could mention it and actually have people know what I'm talking about!

I liked this book so much. I think that it was rude when her father was ignoring her when she was trying to tell him something. The name for Abby's advice column "Gabby Abby" is hilarious. I like when Abby's class is making a newspaper. My favorite part was when Paul ,Abby's dad, finally stopped ignoring Abby.

Definitely a strong series for kids beginning to read chapter books. Well-written and I think nails the thoughts and emotions of the grade school experience. The journal portions add a nice personal touch as well.

Quite a lot of Anne Mazer’s writing education took place while she was unconscious. Her parents wanted desperately to become writers and made themselves get up at 4:00 a.m. Every morning in order to have writing time before their three young children awoke. The first thing Anne heard every day was two big, noisy electric typewriters. The furious sound of typing was her childhood wake-up music. Dur ...more
