A Is for Elizabeth (Paperback)
Other Books in Series
This is book number 1 in the A Is for Elizabeth series.
The first in a new chapter book series spinning off of the Justin Case books, starring Justin's little sister, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth is in second grade. Class 2B! It's great! Friends, recess, homework!
Even a big project: Make a poster of your name.
The name Elizabeth has a bajillion letters in it!
The name Anna has only four letters. Plus, Anna's first letter is A, which is also the first letter of Alphabetical Order. But Anna can't always be first! That's not fair!
In A is for Elizabeth, Elizabeth makes more than a poster.
She also makes some important choices—about fairness, rules, speaking up, and glue.
But the most important thing she makes is...a friend!
With copious line art by Paige Keiser, this first book in a new series—spun off from Rachel Vail's beloved Justin Case series—is sure to delight fans of Judy Moody, Junie B. Jones, and Clementine.

A Is For Elizabeth:
"The prolific Vail here turns her attention to early chapter books in this introduction to second grader Elizabeth. . . this has a satisfying conclusion, as the class comes together to decide what's reallyimportant when it comes how to order things. The clever dialogue is matched by the delightful pencil illustrations that capture Elizabeth's shifting emotions." —Booklist
