Scholastic Book Give Away

Two very lucky Grandma's Little Pearls blog readers have a chance to win their very own copy of LaRue Across America. This give away is sponsored by Scholastic.

This is a beautifully written and illustrated book by award winning Mark Teague. The story begins with  Mrs. LaRue offering to take care of Mrs. Hibbins's two spiteful cats when she becomes ill. Mrs. LaRue and Ike had a peaceful cruise vacation planned. Their plans had to change when they learned that cats were not allowed on the ship.

Ike is forced to take a cross-country road  trip with the cats. Ike is miserable and he writes complaining postcards to Mrs. Hibbins regarding her cats. They travel  across the United States visiting some of America's favorite landmarks. This sea to shining sea story is told from poor Ike's perspective through his hilarious post cards to Mrs. Hibbins.

In the end we are left with the question can cats and dogs really be friends?

You and the children you love will adore this book!
