A young girl adjusts when her mother goes back to work as a science teacher. "A sparkling, humorous, contemporary picture book . . . text and illustrations are a perfect match." --School Library Journal.

This vintage soft cover book is in very good used condition. Very light edge wear, inside pages very clean and smooth, binding sound. Almost like new.

Happy browsing!

Returns & exchanges

Please do read my description of book condition, and take a good look at all photos provided. If for some reason you are not satisfied with your purchase I will provide a refund once I have received the returned book(s).

If a book is "lost in the mail" I wait one month before refunding the cost of the book. Many times books get lost but they do show up even five and six weeks later. It is a drag for all of us but I have never shipped a package that did not (eventually) arrive! It's true!

Shipping policies

Please message me for international shipping rates. All US orders are shipped via USPS Media Mail (happy to provide shipping upgrades). Each package shipped comes with a tracking number that you can access through Etsy. For international customers: if your package is lost I can provide a refund for the cost of the books, but not the cost of the shipping. Many thanks!
