Featuring African American and Latino boys, The Carver Chronicles are high-interest, low reading-level stories from an award-winning author and former elementary school teacher full of kid-friendly charm and universal appeal.
It's tough being the new kid at Carver Elementary. Gavin had lots of friends at his old school, but the kids here don't even know that he's pretty good at skateboarding, or how awesome he is at soccer. And when his classmate Richard comes over and the boys end up in trouble, not only does Gavin risk losing his one new friend, he has to take care of his great aunt Myrtle's horrible little dog as punishment. Ages 6-9
