Praise For…

"’s the realistic portrayal of Calvin’s emotions and his struggles to understand Harper that make this early chapter book so very readable." —Booklist   "Freeman’s black and white spot art is cute without being cartoony, catching reality in the slouch of a kid over a gaming console or the glare of a girl about to get reported to the teacher. Readers following the Carver School students will appreciate another warm and approachable outing with the gang." —Bulletin   "...Carver is a welcoming, multicultural place. Chronicling the importance of empathy and openness, this fourth in the Carver Chronicles is a pleasing addition to a series in which diverse readers can recognize themselves in starring roles." —Kirkus  Praise for The Carver Chronicles     "Many independent readers, particularly boys, will identify with these . . . appealing and likeable characters."—Kirkus   "A much-needed story in which African American boys can see themselves reflected in a positive light, completely free of the usual tropes."—Booklist   "Chapter book readers have few options if they want to read about urban boys of color; here's hoping for more.”—The Horn Book
