I'm Lucy Rose, and here's the thing about 4th: that grade is busy like you can't believe! Especially if you are a person who is already PLENTY busy on account of having RESPONSIBILITIES and I am that kind exactly. I am already collecting a vocabulary, plus I have to think up new palindromes and now I have to do the most P-U thing which is the MULTIPLICATION tables, which I ...more

5 stars. Grades 2-4. More Lucy Rose wonderfulness. Her summer vacation is done and Lucy Rose is in 4th grade. And that grade has a lot of responsibilities! She continues to collect a vocabulary plus palindromes but now multiplication has been added to the list. And multiplication is a thing she hates, if she were allowed to say the word hate, which she is not. PLUS, 4th grade will be performing the play, Annie, and she knows she'll be Annie because she has red hair and if she doesn't she will ab ...more
Lucy Rose would say, "Wow!" about this book because Lucy Rose loves palindromes and words and things that are hilarious. And sometimes Lucy Rose and her friends and family are pretty hilarious.

I wish I had read this series from first to last instead of the other way, but once I read one I wanted to go back and read the other ones. In this book, Lucy is entering fourth grade with her best friend Jonique, with a new friend Hannah, and with her friend who is a boy but not a boyfriend, Arthur, who

This is the fourth book in the series and is just as delightful as the first three. We see Lucy Rose again her engaging and hilarious self. She desperately wants to be Annie at the play, but this is problematic when her worst enemy gets the part. Lucy Rose is given a much better part, but she doesn't see it at the time.

Added to this is her concern that her mother is dating. Like almost every child of divorce, Lucy Rose has dreams that her parents will get together again and she is horrified when

Very cute series. Reminds me of Junie B., Nancy Clancy, and Gooney Bird Greene, but just a little older. It does bug me that Lucy Rose does tend to sound like a highly intelligent first graders rather than a fourth grader, but that could just be the way I hear her in my head. This would be a great series to read out loud. Younger readers who read on a higher level would enjoy it.

I'm sure children for this age group (3rd to 7th grade) would love this book! It has great themes, but I couldn't get past the annoyance of being in a young child's head. Oops.
