Students at a whimsical school for children of busy parents learn silly lessons about manners, friendship, and going far in life, in book two of the series that’s tailor made for a new generation of Mary Poppins fans.

Great Rapscott School for Girls of Busy Parents is not your typical boarding school. Students arrive in boxes, birthday cake is served for breakfast, and two very talented corgis assist the rather quirky headmistress. This semester, the girls will learn how to get to The Top, but the semester is not off to a good start. One of the girls doesn’t make it back to school and when her friends try to rescue her, they wind up at the Bottom of the Barrel. Luckily, Ms. Rapscott knows that learning to fail is the secret to Going Far in life.

Complete with charming black-and-white illustrations, this sequel to Ms. Rapscott’s Girls is full of, warmhearted lessons, spirited adventure, and good cheer.

    School Library Connection

Life lessons are served up with humor and a touch of magic as the girls learn that making mistakes on purpose may send them to the bottom but will give them the grit and confidence they need to climb to the top.”
