Blue Birds

Nestled inside a lighthouse, Great Rapscott School for the Daughters of Busy Parents takes its motto from Amelia Earhart: Adventure is worthwhile in itself. Headmistress extraordinaire Ms. Rapscott couldn’t agree more. But her students, who are shipped to the school in boxes, could use a little convincing. Still, despite their initial reluctance to accept Ms. Rapscott's ways, the students are soon soaring through the sky and getting lost on purpose. In addition to learning what birthday cakes are and how best to approach a bumbershoot tree, the students also manage to learn a little something about courage, strength, and bravery.

Elise Primavera has outdone herself with this irresistible, richly illustrated introduction to Ms. Rapscott and her plucky students. Readers will be eager for more—and for a visit to the bustling lighthouse by the sea.
