Description


Es difícil ser el nuevo niño en la Primaria Carver. Gavin tenía muchos amigos en su anterior escuela, pero aquí los niños parecen no saber que es bastante bueno andando en patineta o lo bueno que es jugando al fútbol. Cuando su amigo Richard lo visita y los niños se meten en problemas, Gavin no solo corre el peligro de perder a su único amigo nuevo, sino que además debe cuidar a la horrible perrita de su tía abuela Myrtle como castigo.

Para empeorar aún más las cosas, Gavin parece haber llamado la atención de un bravucón en la escuela. ¿Podrá evitar ser golpeado en el parque de patinetas? ¿Y cómo podrá probar lo genial que es con una pequeña pomerania saltarina con un moño rosa a su lado?

Esta serie de libros infantiles sobre un variado grupo de alumnos de primaria, escritos por Karen English, autora galardonada con el premio Coretta Scott King, ofrecen una narración precisa, personajes y situaciones con los que identificarse, y mucha acción. Los lectores emergentes y los flamantes lectores independientes se reconocerán en estas graciosas historias de la escuela y la familia.

Praise For…


"English returns to Carver Elementary, the setting of her Nikka and Deja books, in this strong kickoff to her Carver Chronicles series. Freeman's upbeat spot illustrations and English's accessible storytelling target the book to emerging independent readers." 
Publishers Weekly

"Black-and-white spot illustrations break up the text and make this an accessible book for emerging chapter-book readers."
Booklist

"Chapter book readers have few options if they want to read about urban boys of color; here's hoping for more about Gavin and his friends."
