About Isobel Adds It Up: Math-loving kids, especially those who are often bothered by loud noises, will be happy there aren't any elephants around.
Isobel is a problem solver . . . addition, subtraction, multiplication, division! But trying to figure out who is causing all the noise next door is one problem she can't quite work out. Is it a marching band? A basketball team in the middle of a practice? Could it be a family of elephants?
Isobel doesn't know what to do about all the noise, but the solution just might come from the most unlikely place!
About The End of Something Wonderful: With gentle humor and quirkiness, this sympathetic book demonstrates how to say goodbye to a beloved pet and give it a proper sendoff.
"[The End of Something Wonderful is] really good. It's funny and sardonic and it gets to be touching at the end." --Betsy Bird, School Library Journal
Children love their pets very much--and when the animals die, that loss can be hard to process. The End of Something Wonderful helps kids handle their feelings when they're hurting and can't find all the right words. In a warm, understanding, sometimes funny way, it guides children as they plan a backyard funeral to say goodbye, from choosing a box and a burial spot to giving a eulogy and wiping away tears. Most of all, it reassures them that it's not the end of everything . . . and that Something Wonderful can always happen again.
