The Truman Elementary Troublemakers ruled the school before they met their match: little Ginny Louise. Ginny is not a troublemaker; nor does she threaten or intimidate. Instead, Ginny smiles and “only ever heard what she wanted to.” Every threat or insult the Troublemakers send her way she interprets as a compliment or an invitation. Her methods finally soften the Troublemakers when she turns a “showdown” into a “hoedown.” Ginny Louise and her friends are likeable characters in this fun, little romp for young children. A good story about making new and unlikely friends.
