Katharine the Almost Great Set 1
Set of 6 titles
Third grader Katharine Carmichael, AKA Katharine the Almost Great, is a work-in-progress. Katharine's convinced that if she'd stop blabbing super-duper secrets to her cousin Crockett, conquer her stage fright-itis, and come up with the winning idea for the character education service project, her parents would finally crown her Katharine the Great. Young readers will relate to her flip-flop belly dropping problems and episodes of sassitude in these entertaining illustrated chapter books.

In Ditch-a-Roo, someone is ringing Katharine’s doorbell and then disappearing. Her cousin Crockett tries to convince her it’s the Invisible Man but by using her detective skills she eliminates all the suspects except one: Vanessa. Katharine doesn’t unravel the mystery until she accidentally spills water on Vanessa’s science project. The “spark in the dark” experiment complements the information about electricity discussed in Katharine’s science class.
