Well I think it was a really good book, because it was really funny and interesting at the same time. It was good to read because it kept me wanting to read it to the very end so that I could find out what happens.

I read this when I was a child (going back a couple of decades for this one). I remember it being a good book. Hey, it is a Judy Blume book afterall. It is a children's classic.

"It's hard to imagine any child who wouldn't enjoy this absolute lark of a book. A truly appealing book in which the author makes her points without a single preachy word." - Publishers Weekly

I remember reading this book when I was a 9 or 10 years old and I loved it. I swapped this book for my 9 year old daughter and she could not put it down! Judy Blume lives on, she's hooked!

Wonderful book about Peter Hatcher's "frenemy", Sheila Tubman. One of the greatest things about Judy Blume's books is that her characters are timeless and relatable to children. When I was a kid, I was devouring her books, and now my nine year old is doing the same thing. This is one of his favorites.

Sheila Tubman is not quite sure who she is. Sometimes she feels like confident, brilliant Sheila the Great and other times she's secret Sheila, who's afraid of spiders, the dark, swimming, and most of all, dogs. When her family decides to leave the city for a summer in the country, Sheila will have to suffer everything from long-eared dogs to swimming lessons to creepy spiders. That's enough to drive any city girl nuts! If she can survive the summer at all, Sheila may be forced to admit that she's no supergirl.

I requested this book/ series for my 1st Grader son (7& a half years old) bc I remembered it being one of the first books I read when I was his age which I really enjoyed. So much in fact that it helped me to fall in love with the world of books and reading. I was very pleased and impressed to see him pick it up, read a chapter (one of his daily duties/chores is to read 1 chapter a day), and then read another chapter, voluntarily, and another and another. Mission accomplished, and I am giving myself a proverbial pat on the back! :)
