Book Review - Peachy and Keen: A School Tail

Peachy and Keen: A School Tail

About the Book
It's the first week of school, and Peachy couldn't be happier. This year, she can finally join the school newspaper! She's always pictured herself as a star reporter, writing articles that make a difference. But when Peachy goes to sign up--and drags her hyper best friend, Keen, along with her --- they learn that the paper has shut down for good. No one's reading the news anymore! Peachy is crushed.

Just then, Keen gets a text alert, and Peachy's wheels start turning. What if the newspaper were published to student's tablets! Peachy is determined, and Keen is hungry --okay, kind of determined but mostly hungry--and they set off to make it happen. But most of the students they try to recruit are more interested in other clubs, and all of the teachers are too busy to be their advisor. Plus, Peachy & Keen get in a huge fight. Will Purrfect 9 Magazine be doomed before it even begins--along with their friendship?

My Take on the Book
Peachy and Keen are best friends. Peachy, the cat, and Keen, the dog, attend Happy Trails school. Another school year has begun and Peachy convinces Keen to begin a digital magazine for their school. They decided to call it the Happy Trails Times.

In the beginning they have some difficulty locating enough students and a staff member to be their advisor of the magazine. However all goes well with a few bumps in the road to overcome.

There are funny parts to this chapter book your child will enjoy. The story delves into the challenges that children face in friendship. It shows how problem solving together can bring success to what they hope to accomplish. A child in second through fourth grade and reading on a third grade level will enjoy this story.
