Piper Reed Gets a Job
by Kimberly Willis Holt (Author) and Christine Davenier (Illustrator)
160 pages

Booktalk: Piper Reed and her fellow Gypsy Club members are in need of a clubhouse. Raising money to buy one proves a challenge. Piper, being the resourceful fifth grader that she is, launches her own party-planning business and gets her first job throwing young Brady’s birthday celebration. But things don’t go as expected…

Snippet: Beep! Beep! Six thirty. I turned off the alarm, threw off my covers, and popped out of bed. My insides did flip-flops. There was something exciting about the first day of school.
