Say Cheese

Jan Carr

"Boisterous" and "bustling" Buddy and Bea make some unexpected--and hilarious--memories on school picture day in their fourth chapter book.

It's picture day at school! Lots of people are dressed up, and Bea is even wearing a fluffy dress, which she's not exactly excited about. When she tells Buddy that he should take his glasses off for the photo, he listens. Everything will be blurry without them, but he decides he won't take them off for long. Except then his glasses go missing. Are they lost? Did someone take them? Bea volunteers to help track them down, though her "help" isn't always helpful. The perfect tension between these two second graders--a hallmark of this series--is front and center in this fast-paced, spot-on fourth installment.
