Wednesday Wilson Gets Down to Business
Bree Galbraith, illustrated by Morgan Goble
In the first entertaining instalment in a new early chapter book series, one unfortunate kale incident isn't enough to stop the unbeatable Wednesday Wilson from pursuing her entrepreneurial dreams — or is it?
The most important thing to know about Wednesday Wilson is that she's an entrepreneur. She hasn't started any businesses yet, but she's pretty sure today is the day. She and her best friend, Charlie (Wednesday's future Vice President of Operations), with some help from her little brother, Mister, have made a list of potential businesses. But before they get to move forward on one, there's an unfortunate incident in class with the Emmas (whose last initials happen to spell M.E.A.N.) involving a bearded dragon named Morten and a piece of kale...it's a long story.
It figures that Wednesday's archnemeses would be the ones to mess up her plans! But maybe all is not lost. Maybe this is just the opportunity Wednesday and her friends needed to come up with a brilliant business idea that will save the day and make them millionaires. Or...not? With its fresh voice, diverse cast of lovable and relatable characters and delightfully determined heroine, Bree Galbraith's illustrated early chapter book series hits the spot for beginning readers (and their grown-ups!).
