Excerpt: Dimples Delight (by (author) Frieda Wishinsky; illustrated by Louise-Andrée Laliberté)
At recess, Stewart and I played catch. I forgot about Joe for a few minutes.
Then someone tapped me hard on my shoulder.
I spun around.
It was Joe.
"How's Dimples' little boo-boo?" he asked.
"Stop calling me that," I said.
"Now don't get so excited," he sneered. "It makes your face look like a tomato—a tomato with worm holes."
"A very good choice for beginning readers. Recommended."
