Description

"...it's the realistic portrayal of Calvin's emotions and his struggles to understand Harper that make this early chapter book so very readable."
--Booklist

"Freeman's black and white spot art is cute without being cartoony, catching reality in the slouch of a kid over a gaming console or the glare of a girl about to get reported to the teacher. Readers following the Carver School students will appreciate another warm and approachable outing with the gang."
--Bulletin

"...Carver is a welcoming, multicultural place. Chronicling the importance of empathy and openness, this fourth in the Carver Chronicles is a pleasing addition to a series in which diverse readers can recognize themselves in starring roles."
--Kirkus

Praise for The Carver Chronicles

"Many independent readers, particularly boys, will identify with these . . . appealing and likeable characters."--Kirkus

"A much-needed story in which African American boys can see themselves reflected in a positive light, completely free of the usual tropes."--Booklist

"Chapter book readers have few options if they want to read about urban boys of color; here's hoping for more."--The Horn Book
