What James Said

Liz Rosenberg. illus. by Matt Myers. Roaring Brook/Neal Porter Bks.

K-Gr 3–A misunderstanding leads a little girl to give her BFF the cold shoulder until what James actually said is revealed and feelings are mended. Authentically kid-centered dialogue and art perfectly capture the melodrama of elementary-age relationships with humor and respect.
