Reviews

* "In school, when your surname begins with 'Z, ' it means being last at everything. . . . But Lola Zuckerman's desire to go to the head of her class is the focus of this winning, environmentally themed book. . . . The characters are fully developed, each with their own delightful quirks. . . . Children will root for Lola as she tries to mend fences, save the planet, and come out on top. The lessons of recycling are creatively explored, showing readers big and small ways to help our planet. Those who have enjoyed 'Clementine' will welcome this contemporary tale as it tackles family, competition, friendship, and the environment. . . . A great choice for early chapter-book readers." --School Library Journal
