Marty McGuire would rather spend recess catching frogs in the pond than playing dress-up with the other girls in third grade. So when her teacher casts Marty as the princess in the class play, Marty’s absolutely, positively sure that there’s been a huge mistake. But after a special lesson in the art of improvisation, Marty comes up with her own plan to improve the play: Why use stuffed-animal frog onstage when a live one would be so much better? In the end, Marty’s one-of-a-kind performance makes for an unforgettable show. Maybe a tomboy princess can live happily ever after, after all! Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Packed with eco-friendly ideas, this realistic, plot-driven early chapter book is a welcome addition to Earth Day or environmental units.” 

    School Library Journal

  • “Marty’s first-person commentary, sometimes just a tiny bit sarcastic, splendidly conveys the eroding innocence of middle-graders. A quick, amusing read with an easily digestible environmental message; it is a perfect match for its young intended audience.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " After reading the second book in this series I can't wait for a third. This will make a great read aloud for the younger grades and once again is a well written chapter book for third grade. I even learned something about raising worms. "

    " My students and I loved this book as much as we loved the first Marty book. Great characters and interesting science facts, too. "

    " The character of Marty is really loveable. I enjoyed the sequel and would recommend it as a read aloud in grade 2 and for independent reading in grades two and three and possibly even four. Kate Messner does it again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jeremy Ruble | 1/17/2014

    " This book is a good intermediate step up from the Junie B. Jones books. It has the advantage of having proper grammar - which as a teacher I consider a plus! The story is simple; explores a little science; displays writing skills in Marty's journal entries. It contains a lot of things a teacher could launch lessons from. It feels "third grade", but I'd definitely suggest it to girls at the beginning of fourth grade! Solid, easy to read chapter book with plenty of pictures to support comprehension! "
