9780152055448: Regarding the Sink: Where, Oh Where, Did Waters Go?

Geyser Creek Middle School's cafeteria sink is clogged, and the smell is . . . well, P-U-trid. Of course, the savvy students in the sixth-grade class know just who can create a fabuloso new sink--Florence Waters, who designed the school's OTT (over-the-top) water fountain. But the famous fountain designer (and, more important, their good friend) has gone missing! Undeterred, these kids follow their hearts and noses all the way to China to find Florence . . . and sniff out a few stinkers along the way.

Told in letters, newspaper articles, and BEAN-mails, this story is guaranteed to make you laugh until beans fly out your nose!

About the Author:

KATE KLISE is the author of many popular middle grade novels, including Regarding the Fountain, an IRA Young Adults' Choice, as well as Trial by Journal and Letters from Camp. She is also a correspondent for People magazine. She lives in Norwood, Missouri.

M. SARAH KLISE is the illustrator of four other middle grade novels written by her sister Kate, including Regarding the Fountain, Trial by Journal, and Letters from Camp. She is also an art teacher and lives in Berkeley, California.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6–In this sequel to Regarding the Fountain (HarperCollins, 1998), Florence Waters, the artist who designed the school fountain, is needed to design a new cafeteria sink, but she is missing. Finding her becomes the focus of the sixth-grade class from Geyser Creek Middle School in Missouri. A U.S. Senator, the principal's rich mother, Chinese Sinkiang Blinking Spotted Suckerfish, big business, and beans all play a role in this mystery that eventually leads to a class trip to China. The story is conveyed through letters, student drawings and poems, advertisements, e-mails, school assignments, facsimiles, stock reports, newspaper articles, a variety of other kinds of documents, and cartoons. Each page is designed to look like the kind of document it represents. Piecing the story and clues together is satisfying. Introduce this book to savvy readers who are ready for the jump to a clever, unconventional reading experience.–Jean Gaffney, Dayton and Montgomery County Public Library, Miamisburg, OH
