Rating: 5


Franny, Pru, Cat and Ivy may hate each other's guts, but they've got to stick together when an evil witch comes to town. Check out the review of The Secret Order of the Gumm Street Girls!

A Pair of Ruby Red Slippers

Franny is adventurous, Pru is a bit of a scaredy cat, Cat is a know-it-all (maybe that's cuz she has ESP), and Ivy is jinxed. Although they're enemies, they have a couple of things in common. They live on Gumm Street and take piano lessons from Mr. Staccato. It's at his house that they discover a pair of ruby red slippers - the same ruby red slippers from The Wizard of Oz! Soon after Mr. Staccato dies, a hurricane of a problem hits Gumm Street - the sister of the Wicked Witch of the West wants the shoes and it's up to the girls to protect them!

There's No Place Like Home

It turns out four little girls are no match for a wicked witch. She banishes them to the land of Spoz to work as maids for a couple of nasty witches. While the girls don't exactly get along, they realize they have to put aside their differences and work together in order to escape from Spoz and return home. But while Dorothy clicked her red heels three times to get back home, these girls don't have anything to help them!


The Bottom Line

Don't be scared off by the 473 pages that make up The Secret Order of the Gumm Street Girls. The illustrations cut it down to about half of that - or at least that's what it seems like cuz it's such an entertaining read! Even though you're back at school and busy with homework and projects, make The Secret Order of the Gumm Street Girls a must-read on weekends when you're not so swamped with school stuff.

Be bold and initiate a short chat. This will help you to learn those little things that will come in handy later because everyone loves knowing that someone actually listened to them and cared enough to remember the small details about them. Listen carefully and be attentive to the things she tells you so that you will have them for future reference. As you talk, notice if she gives you any signs, special words or hints. All girls are different. Is she shy or outgoing? Does she act like this around other guys? Look at her body language. Leaning in, uncrossed legs, nervous voice, and dilated pupils (especially), are all signs she likes you. Another sign is if she laughs at your boring, stupid jokes. (Beware: Don't use bad jokes as a test, or you'll risk looking like a comedy dork.) She may not be able to look you straight in the eye. She might smile and laugh a lot because she is worried about giving too much away. Check for the smile. A girl that's interested in you will usually immediately smile when you start a conversation with her. The smile may disappear quickly if she's shy, but it's hard to hide an unexpected strong emotion. If she's not romantically interested, she'll likely look at you inquisitively, but she won't express any particular interest.

The first book that was read to me by my learning buddy in Sunnybrook School was Harry potter and the Sorcerer's stone. I was bowled over by the book and it took me to a different world. Harry, Ron and Hermione became my friends as well.
