Beatrice Spells Some Lulus and Learns to Write a Letter

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Giselle Potter. The team responsible for Shrinking Violet offers this tale of a spelling-obsessed kid who is distressed after her efforts to start a spelling club at school are met with yawns. She gets her classmates to change their minds improbably easily and completely, but the writing is spick-and-span, and Potter scores with her customary warmth and attention to facial features.
