Beatrice Zinker, Upside Down Thinker

Beatrice does her best thinking upside down. Hanging from trees by her knees, doing handstands... for Beatrice Zinker, upside down works every time. She was definitely upside down when she and her best friend, Lenny, agreed to wear matching ninja suits on the first day of third grade.

But when Beatrice shows up at school dressed in black, Lenny arrives with a cool new outfit and a cool new friend. Even worse, she seems to have forgotten all about the top-secret operation they planned! Can Beatrice use her topsy-turvy way of thinking to save the mission, mend their friendship, and flip things sunny-side up? This early chapter book with characterful spot illustrations throughout is a celebration of optimism and individuality!

"Beatrice, essentially a kind if somewhat quirky kid, struggles to see the upside of the situation and ends up with two friends instead of one.... A kind child in a book for middle-grade readers? There’s no downside to that." — Kirkus Reviews
