9780060569488: The Secret Order of the Gumm Street Girls

Franny longs for adventure but can't even do a cartwheel. Pru can do a cartwheel but prefers hiding under her quilt making up safety tips. Cat has no use for safety tips but supposedly has ESP. And Ivy has had a seven-year string of bad luck—a Jinx that's about to get a whole lot worse.

The four are thrown together when a pair of mysterious ruby red slippers turn up, along with the fashionably mad Cha-Cha Staccato, who bears a frightening resemblance to a certain wicked witch. . . .

As hilarious as it is original, The Secret Order of the Gumm Street Girls is an unforgettable take on girlhood, piano recitals, The Wizard of Oz, and the dependable everyday magic of true friendship.

About the Author:

Elise Primavera has, like Ivy, suffered her fair share of jinxes in life and has found it helpful, like Cat, to consult the I Ching before making any important decisions. She often feels, like Pru, that the safest place in this danger-filled world is under a quilt with a good book. As Franny dreams of doing, she has made her mark in the world—but as a writer and illustrator of children's books and not as an explorer in the mold of Sir Ernest Shackleton. Among her many books are the national bestselling Auntie Claus and its sequel. This is her first novel, but it won't be her last, because like Hieronymus Gumm, she always likes to have the last word and is hard at work on another book about the Gumm Street Girls.

From AudioFile:

Elise Primavera's first novel offers good fun with offbeat humor, wordplay, and the hint of more adventures to come. Colleen Delany's performance is a treat for the ears. Her vocal talents are prodigious as she creates unique voices and personalities for the four Gumm Street girls and every strange character they meet. Franny, Pru, and Cat have been unfriendly neighbors forever, with nothing in common but the street they live on. When Ivy moves in, burdened by a jinx who has haunted her for seven years, the four discover they need each other and their unique talents to find their way home through the magic of friendship.
