The irrepressible Isabelle is back, teaching new friends old tricks
No one warned the new kid on the block, third grader Guy Gibbs, to watch out for a spirited, newspaper-delivering fifth grader named Isabelle. But as he helps the movers get his family’s piano through the front door, there she is: the original itch herself.
Before long, Isabelle makes Guy her protégé. Suddenly she’s introducing him to the thrills of fighting with your best friend and wearing your mother’s pantyhose while robbing a bank.
Isabelle’s energy is infectious, and Guy is having fun. But soon, stirring up trouble starts to feel like more effort than it’s worth, and Guy must decide between being a tough kid and being himself.
Isabelle Shows Her Stuff, the second in Constance C. Greene’s boisterous Isabelle series, is an entertaining and lively follow-up tale for the itch’s young fans.
