Abigail Iris: The One and Only


Glatt, Lisa and Greenberg, Suzanne. Abigail Iris: The One and Only. 148 pgs. 2009. Walker Publishing Company, Inc. Language: G, Sexual Content: G, Violence: G. Abigail is tired of having not being an only child. She can’t have fancy shoes like Heelys, she has to share a bedroom, and her family never gets to go on fancy vacations. When her friend, Genevieve, who’s an only child, invites her to go on vacation to San Francisco with her family, Abigail soon discovers that being an only child may not be all it’s cracked up to be. The personality of an eight-year-old girl is truly captured by Suzanne and Lisa. This lively, humorous tale is unique and will delight young readers who like books like Junie B. Jones and Judy Moody. EL(2-3). ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: Kira-Youth Services Librarian-HUN Public Library.
