Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Mallory takes her elementary school's mission to go green seriously--maybe a little too seriously as she soon alienates her classmates, friends, and family. She learns that if she really wants to help others to go green, she will have to work with them rather than tell them what they must do. Fun, easy chapter book with a good message for 2nd to 4th graders.
Mallory Goes Green! is a new addition to the Mallory series. Mallory McDonald is super-excited to be an official member of the Fern Falls Elementary Environmental Committee and is ready to make both her school - and her home - more environmentally friendly. She is even elected as her class representative for the all-school "Green Fair." But, when Mallory goes green - everything goes wrong. The kids in her class don't want to participate in the Green Fair project she created. In fact, by the day of the Green Fair Mallory has managed to upset even her two best friends with her "Green Police" tactics. Mallory must find a way to save not only the planet - but her friendships as well. Dedicated "Mallory" fans will enjoy this new addition to the series - and new fans will love it too! Mallory Goes Green! is illustrated by Jennifer Kalis. Ms. Kalis has illustrated several children's books. She has also had her artwork appear in several magazines. Readers are sure to enjoy sketches which show many of Mallory's "green ideas." Related websites: www.lernerbooks.com www.mallorymcdonald.com
