About the Book

Title: Miss Priss: On and Off the Court | Author: Judy Phillips | Illustrator: Brenda Nichols | Publication Date: August 20, 2015 | Publisher: Tadpole Press ...4 Kids (a division of Smooth Sailing Press) | Pages: 230 | Recommended Ages: 8 to 12  

Summary: Priscilla Penelope Paxton is a witty ten year old whose inter-ests and curiosity land her in, sometimes, sticky situations. Dance classes, Girl Scouts, school assignments, friends and hanging out at her family's drug store, and the local Piggly Wiggly would leave any other person with no time for any-thing else. Yet, the thrill of basketball and joining the Little Dribblers finds its way into Miss Priss' heart. Though this interest will prove to be a dream that requires overcoming the greatest of challenges; Mom’s opposition. A task that will require ingenuity, perseverance and a little help from some loved ones.

Miss Priss "On and Off the Court" is book one in a new tweenie series.  4th, 5th and 6th graders will just love to get to know Miss Priss,  Judy Phillips has you on the edge and turning the pages waiting to see the challenges that lay ahead for Priscilla Paxton.  It was fun to see the situations she got herself into and how she got out of them.  I can't wait to see what the next book in the series holds for Priscilla.  I'm excited to share this book with the students that I teach.  Awesome book.
