I used to love these books as a kid and I am sure I read this as a kid. But after reading it now and after many years I didn't really care for it. I felt a bit bad for the protagonist Emily Arrow and I thought the ending was too abrupt!
Just finished reading this to my girl and loved all of the memories it brought back! I recall reading this in elementary school and really pondering the impact a shirt with green kittens on the collar could have.
A sort of dull look at life in a first grade classroom around Valentine's Day. I probably won't read this to my class next year.
