ruman Elementary School has a determined trio of troublemakers. But when a little hedgehog named Ginny Louise walks in the door one day, these bad students' days will be numbered.
ith her positive attitude, warm smile and penchant for hearing only what she wants to, Ginny Louise manages to disarm three bullies and turn them into much nicer individuals.
hen she first arrives Ginny Louise is so irritating that one of the nasty crew tells her, '
Yer gonna pay.
' Her response is, '
I'd love to stay! Thanks, new best friend!
hen other desperadoes voice similar sentiments and tell the hedgehog, '
You're messing with my bad-guy force field!
' and '
Yer gonna pay!
', she responds with '
I'd love to play! You're the best new friend!
'. Of course this is not the reply the motley crew expected or wanted.
ith her exuberant personality and unexpected responses to threats, it doesn't take Ginny Louise long to alter the classroom atmosphere and change the attitudes of the resident pesky troublemakers.
nfortunately, reality doesn't always work this way but this does make for a positive, humorous story and one young readers will find amusing and enjoy reading over and over again.
