missing her best friend, Lenny, but they have a top secret plan once school is back in session Only Lenny doesn t come in a matching ninja suit on the first day of third grade no She s totally different with not only a cool new look but also a cool new friend and there doesn t seem to be a place for Beatrice I saw this on netgalley and it is the right reading age for my nephew so I thought we d give it a go My nephew really enjoyed reading a bigger book and said he liked it because it was funny He didn t enjoy it the entire time we read though and struggled with making it to the end The mass of words were too much for him and I had to switch and read one page and let him read a page, back and forth It became less of a chore for him this way If you have a child transitioning up from picture books this story is fun and zany and makes for a story that holds the interest of both parent and child.The illustrations were wonderful and helped me hold my nephew s interest in the beginning They really gave Beatrice tons of personality I honestly didn t find Beatrice believable as a character Her entire motivation didn t seem to come from her as a person so much as an outside agenda And Beatrice is so out there that I sympathized with Lenny Once I went along with this other agenda I struggled less to get along with Beatrice Don t get me wrong I liked WHO Beatrice was as a person, her insistence on doing things differently and her enjoyment in focusing on the individual This disconnect for me probably stems from me being an adult and not a childJust because I m upside down doesn t mean everyone has to be Isn t that the whole point While I found Beatrice s conclusions a stretch her idea to befriend Chloe or lose Lenny teaches a great lesson, especially for girls who naturally have interpersonal problems Different is okay and why not all be friends Be accepting of everyone s differences ALL worthy messages These can cause a discussion especially with a girl as they are all ideals that can be applied to a child s life We both struggled in the beginning as there seemed to be 3 chapters about breakfast It just took a long time to setup who Beatrice is but once we got to school it got much better For the most part I was taken with the story as I wondered what this top secret mission was all about Once you learn Beatrice s plan and see how she wins over Lenny again you are totally invested in the story The friendship between Beatrice and Lenny seemed real to how girls are as far as how they grow distant from one another and fall out of their relationship It really struck home to me even as an adult that there could be a different way for things to turn out Beatrice s family is a strong presence in her life She makes strides with her totally opposite sister due to what she learns with Lenny And her dad was super cute He has the idea to have dessert first ala Beatrice upside down due to her bad day They got pineapple upside down cakeAlmost as good as baconThat is a dad Knows just what you need when life gets you down, not overprotective but sympathetic BOTTOM LINE A super upside down GIRL story Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.______________________You can find this review and many others on my book blog Perspective of a Writer See my special perspective at the bottom of my reviews under the typewriter Beatrice Zinker is an Upside Down Thinker She has a best friend, Lenny who loves her just the way she is Things are great until the girls come back from summer break as third graders While Beatrice is ready for fun and spy games, Lenny seems to have changed over the summer This book is a must have for any 2nd 4th grade library Kids will relate to Beatrice and her friendship woes Let s hope kids remain as cool and calm and ready to problem solve as our friend, Beatrice I have always loved books that focuson character than plot, and this book has that in spades Beatrice Zinker always sees the upside to life because she spends so much time upside down This is an absolutely darling early chapter book to transition 2nd 4th graders into longer novels I can t wait to read Beatrice s next upside down adventure. This is fabulous for that beginning chapter book reader Cute story, fun character, and a plot that embraces humor and uniqueness A great addition to any mid elementary grades series collection. I loved Beatrice What a fun character Fans of Ramona Quimby or Gertie s Leap to Greatness will love this This book is delightful and the illustrations are fun The story is fast paced and a pretty quick read at 167 pages with a lot of illustrations It is perfect for the reluctant Middle Grade aged reader, and would also be a fabulous chapter, or two, a night bedtime story for the younger crowd It has themes of finding your place in family and peer groups, with friendship in the spotlight.I was approved for an eARC, via Netgalley, in return for an honest review. A new early chapter book series full of wordplay and crazy antics Things I loved about it 1 It features a Filipino character.2 The plan that doesn t end up happening becomes something else which becomes the driving plot for the entire series I won t spoil it for you but it s about kindness. I loved getting to know Beatrice Zinker She s got the spunk and bad luck of Ramona Quimby with the quirky illustrations that remind me of another one of my favorite heroines, Dory Fantasmagory.Let s all be Upside Down Thinkers. Some losses were worse than others A secret base was replaceable Lenny Santos was not A delightful story about friendship and change with a uniquely charming character at its upside down heart.
