Starting with Alice

Alice Prequel Series ; Book 1

by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor


Alice at EIGHT—boy was she a pistol! The very first book in a beloved series gets a makeover.

Eight-year-old Alice McKinley wants pierced ears, really long hair, a pet, and, most of all, a mother. Oh, and some friends would be nice. As the new girl in third grade, Alice doesn’t know a single kid in Takoma Park, Maryland, except her next-door neighbor Donald Sheavers, who is not only a boy, but seems a bit peculiar, too! Desperate to meet people, Alice learns that making friends is harder than it seems when she runs into a group of girls whom she nicknames the “Terrible Triplets” after they make it very clear that they do not want to get to know Alice.

As Alice navigates the confusion of being a kid, there are plenty of bumps, giggles, and surprises along the way. Every girl should grow up with Alice, and with this irresistible new look, a whole new generation will want to.
