WHAT HAPPENED ON FOX STREET by Tricia Springstubb, illustrated by Heather Ross

9-year-old Mo Wren has lived on Fox Street her entire life. Almost everybody she cares about lives there; the Baggott boys, her best friend’s grandmother, even spooky Mrs. Steinbott. Whenever Mo’s dad works, she takes care of the “wild child,” her little sister, Dottie. Mo wishes her dad would snap out of his bad mood. He hasn’t been the same since her mom’s accident. And when a developer wants to buy up Fox Street, Mo thinks her Dad will never sell. But then she thought her mom would live on Fox Street forever. Readers will fight alongside Mo as she battles to hold onto everything she loves. Everything that makes her feel safe. Everything that makes her Mo.

Look for a review soon of the newly released sequel, Mo Wren: Lost and Found (Balzer & Bray, 2011).

Hi Carmen,

I love your website. The illustrations are very lovely and your message is very encouraging. I almost feel like I took a walk on the beach after visiting it. Thanks to your post, I am checking out Tricia Springstubb’s book pictured here. The sequel isn’t available at our library, but I bet it will be soon. This blog gives me lots of book titles to locate and read. I love that about ReaderKidZ. Keep writing. Your list of published works is impressive.

Thank you for the kind words, Linda!! I’m positive you’ll enjoy FOX STREET! Try requesting to see if your librarian will order MO WREN for their library. I make suggestions to our children’s librarian all the time about good books. They appreciate it:)

Or you can purchase a copy through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your local indie book store.

Thanks for your comment. I’m glad the review was helpful!
