Beatrice Zinker, Upside Down Thinker by Shelley Johannes

Beatrice does her best thinking upside down.

Hanging from trees by her knees, doing handstands . . . for Beatrice Zinker, upside down works every time. She was definitely upside down when she and her best friend, Lenny, agreed to wear matching ninja suits on the first day of third grade. But when Beatrice shows up at school dressed in black, Lenny arrives with a cool new outfit and a cool new friend. Even worse, she seems to have forgotten all about the top-secret operation they planned!

Can Beatrice use her topsy-turvy way of thinking to save the mission, mend their friendship, and flip things sunny-side up? [chapter book, ages 9 and up]

    “What are your favorite chapter books about shifting friendships?” How about the “From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler,” where the brother and sister achieve a new-found respect for each other?

  2. Always great to see things from a different perspective. Sounds like a cute book.
