Description

Because no one likes to feel left out.

Friends are like sprinkles on a birthday cake—you can never have too many! So when a new girl named Margot joins the class, Veronica and her BFF, Cora, welcome her with open arms. Everything about Margot is super exciting— from her fashion designer mom to the perfect French she speaks—and everyone loves her. Especially Cora.

Before long, Cora and Margot have matching outfits and rhyming nicknames. Veronica feels left out, big time, but she won’t give up on her best friend without a fight. Trouble is, the harder she tries to hold on to Cora, the more she pushes her away—until the two besties end up in a showdown that hurts more than just feelings.

It’s a job for the Fix-It Friends, to be sure. But can the president of the problem-solvers accept help herself?

Three’s a Crowd is the sixth installment in this laugh-out-loud chapter book series starring a precocious and loveable heroine. It includes the Fix-It Friends Toolbox, filled with advice to handle changes in friendships.

About the Author

Nicole C. Kear grew up in New York City, where she still lives, with her husband, three firecracker kids and a ridiculously fluffy hamster. She's written lots of essays; a memoir, Now I See You, for grownups; and The Fix-It Friends series for kids. She also co-wrote The Startup Squad series with Brian Weisfeld. She has a bunch of fancy, boring diplomas, and one red clown nose from circus school. Seriously.

Tracy Dockray illustrated the paperback cover of Lois Lowry's Stay, a dog's tale about his life, and a picture book, Izzy & Oscar (Sourcebooks, 2015) a story about a more unusual kind of pet. Tracy has illustrated numerous other picture books such as The Tushy Book and the prize winning Lost and Found Pony, as well as an edition of Beverly Cleary's Ramona series, Ralph the Mouse series and Henry Huggins series.
