Beatrice More is no average third-grader. She is a list-making, hyperorganized perfectionist whose laid-back parents and messy little sister consistently frustrate her high standards. And when a new house, a new neighborhood and new friends are thrown into the mix, Beatrice sends the family into a comic tailspin, all in the name of “professionalism.” Despite her most feverish organizational efforts, Beatrice ultimately discovers that some of the best experiences are the ones you can’t control.
School Library Connection - March 1, 2016
"A pleasant story...The humorous b&w drawings are a perfect complement...A good early chapter book for many young readers. Recommended."
CM Magazine - September 25, 2015
"Beatrice’s parents scramble to make their home presentable while, at the same time, teaching Beatrice that perfection isn’t possible...[She] realizes that sometimes being on a schedule is no fun and you don't have to be in a hurry all the time. Recommended."
Kirkus Reviews - September 15, 2015
"Readers may enjoy watching [Beatrice] assume the adult role to her parents' childishness... Frequent, equally exaggerated illustrations add to the fun...[An] amusing tale."
