20. Many Troubles of Andy Russell - Andy Russell #1 (Gulliver Books, 1998)
David A. Adler & Will Hillenbrand
(Grades 2-4)

When some of his gerbils escape and he gets in trouble for not paying attention in class, fourth-grader Andy Russell worries about asking if a friend can move in with his family- especially when he learns that his mother is going to have another baby.

“The text, accompanied by black-and-white drawings by Will Hillenbrand, is friendly and accessible, and the characters are engaging; kids will no doubt relate to Andy's snowballing troubles, both great and small, and appreciate the simple humor.”


“The black-and-white illustrations capture the humor of the story…”
