Dessert First

Dessert First by Hallie Durand and Christine Davenier is a great new chapter book targeting the Amber Brown/Judy Moody/Junie B. Jones crowd. Dessert is good at finding trouble, which makes for some good entertainment to read about. She is one of many children in a large, restaurant owning family, and there are plenty of things to laugh about throughout this book. One indication of its popularity may be that my seven year old took the book while I was reading it and added it to her own pile of things to read. I spent two days looking for this book in all the logical places before finally locating it. I love that there are illustrations included for readers who still need them and am hoping this is not our only glimpse at Dessert and her antics.
