When something bad happens it can be compared to pickle juice on a cookie, or perhaps to a spiderweb on your leg or even to the black parts of a banana. I’ve never had pickle juice on a cookie, but it certainly sounds really bad to me.
Eleanor is having a really bad August. Her babysitter, her beloved Bibi, has moved far away. Bibi has been her only babysitter and no one knows about Eleanor the way Bibi does. Everything reminds her of Bibi. To make matters worse, her best friend is away on vacation and won’t be back until the day before 3rd grade starts. Sigh. . .August is really bad.
Natalie is Eleanor’s new babysitter. She is nice, but she is not Bibi. But she does understand how Eleanor must be feeling with the loss of Bibi. Maybe, just maybe, Eleanor and Natalie can have fun in new ways.
This sweet book about change reassures the reader that change doesn’t always have to be like pickle juice on a cookie.
