Reviews - What do customers think about Alice's World Record?
Intended for young readers age seven to ten Apr 17, 2009
Intended for young readers age seven to ten, Alice's World Record is a novel about a young girl caught between Rosie, her mischief-making little sister, and Oliver, an older brother who seems to never be wrong about anything. But one day on a family trip to her grandparents' house, she soundly beats her know-it-all brother at the Alphabet Game, setting a world record (for her family). Oliver sulks over his loss, while Rosie is uncharacteristically well-behaved - what is she hiding? It's about to be a most unusual day for Alice's family! Also highly recommended for inquisitive young readers the previous Alice adventure by author and mother of two Tim Kennemore, "Alice's Birthday Pig".
