Skateboard Party: The Carver Chronicles, Book Two - Karen English, Laura Freeman

Richard has worked tirelessly on his flat-ground Ollie, determined to impress at Gregory Johnson’s skateboard party. But he hasn’t worked tirelessly on learning how to spell “quotient,” or where the howler monkey lives, and his fourth-grade teacher insists he can do better. When Richard “forgets” to give her note to his parents, the truth and its consequences quickly catch up with him in the second installment of Karen English’s Carver Chronicles: Skateboard Party (Clarion, $14.99). As with the winning, well-meaning Gavin of Dog Days, young readers will empathize with Richard’s (usually) good intentions and laugh at the mischievous interactions among his three brothers. By emphasizing characters’ expressions, Laura Freeman’s accompanying illustrations light-heartedly capture the trials and tribulations of growing up in—and raising—a big family. Ages 6-9.
