Margaret K. McElderry Books,
Pub. Date:
First U.S. edition.
School has started, and secrets and adventures await Binny and her family in this delightful novel which Horn Book called "a vigorous blend of screwball comedy and heartfelt emotion" in a starred review. School has started, and Binny can't stand it. She has a horrid hand-me-down uniform and the kids make fun of her "posh" city accent. Then a storm damages the roof of their home, and Binny, her sensible older sister Clem, and her rambunctious brother James (and chickens) must move to a rental home out in the country. Then one of James's beloved chickens vanishes. What kind of creature is lurking in the undergrowth? And does it need Binny's protection? Feisty, fiercely loywal, and totally charming, Binny will have readers rooting for her through every twist and turn of this surprising and hilariously moving tale.
