Eight new stories about Grace and her friends: delightfully realistic they capture the details of a small group of friends whose lives revolve around the time at school – including standing up to bullies - and the complications with their families at home which they get through by supporting each other. Grace is a great character and her relationships with her very special Nana makes all these stories especially warm hearted.

Synopsis

Encore Grace by Mary Hoffman

Here are eight more stories of Grace, the popular character from "Amazing Grace" and "Starring Grace". Grace finds that her family is changing and so is her group of friends. There's a new girl who puts Grace's nose out of joint, a production of Sleeping Beauty that aims to be very different, a school bully to contend with, and goodbyes to be said to a friend who moves away. Grace has to adapt to a new member of the family, and learns how it feels to lose someone. And as always, when things change for Grace, she turns to stories for inspiration.

Reviews

[These] eight stories about Grace and her friends are delightful. Their interactions are set against a bigger picture about the importance of sticking together when there are bullies about, and supporting each other through family complications. Grace's relationship with her very special Nana makes all these stories especially warm-hearted -- Dina Rabinovitch Guardian An inviting bridge to cross from the picture books ... good-hearted, refreshingly delightful pieces School Librarian
