Booklist Review

In Mallory's twenty-second title, she is excited that her best friends will be welcoming a baby into their family soon. But once it arrives, everyone is occupied with it, and no one seems to remember that Mallory is even around anymore. Is this the way things will be from now on? Has she lost her best friends forever? Delicately handling the feelings young children have upon the arrival of a baby, this is another quality addition to the Mallory series, in which our dauntless hero learns that while some things may change, friendships remain. Filled with cheery black-and-white illustrations, this is perfect for beginning chapter-book readers.--Thompson, Sarah Bean Copyright 2010 Booklist
