Katharine the Almost Great Set 2

Format Price Qty

Third grader Katharine Carmichael, AKA Katharine the Almost Great, is a work-in-progress. Katharine's convinced that if she'd stop blabbing super-duper secrets to her cousin Crockett, conquer her stage fright-itis, and come up with the winning idea for the character education service project, her parents would finally crown her Katharine the Great. Young readers will relate to her flip-flop belly dropping problems and episodes of sassitude in these entertaining illustrated chapter books.

Artsy-Fartsy Auction (Katharine the Almost Great) - School Library Journal

Katharine is excited when her homemade popcorn bowl is in the school’s art auction, but a misunderstanding with another third grader causes her to start a bidding war that turns the charity event into a competition fueled by greed. This book concentrates on the jealousy Katharine feels toward her classmate Vanessa (Miss Priss-a-Poo), but it also reveals her compassionate side by including a secondary story line involving her cousin, whose parents have recently divorced.

Ding Dong Ditch-a-Roo (Katharine the Almost Great)- School Library Journal

In Ditch-a-Roo, someone is ringing Katharine’s doorbell and then disappearing. Her cousin Crockett tries to convince her it’s the Invisible Man but by using her detective skills she eliminates all the suspects except one: Vanessa. Katharine doesn’t unravel the mystery until she accidentally spills water on Vanessa’s science project. The “spark in the dark” experiment complements the information about electricity discussed in Katharine’s science class.
