And now there is a series! This makes the third Myrtle book. If your children liked the first two, you need to buy them this one as well. Myrtle sets off for school afraid of the new unusual student who might be there. Her parents admonition? Be nice! (Easier said than done.) See how Myrtle overcomes her fear of the unknown and makes a new valuable friend.
My mother would always tell me. Whatever the circumstances, you will never be sorry you were kind. It appears Myrtle’s mother has the same wise advice.
A must read for children learning how to get along in a world that is full of differences.
