Gr 1-3–School is in session at Fruitdale Elementary for the rhyming best friends Peach and Plum in this series sequel. The duo and their classmates find themselves in many relatable situations, like adjusting to a substitute teacher, looking for lost objects, and dealing with stage fright. The emphasis on rhyming within the graphic novel adds pop to an engaging and well-paced reading experience. Brightly colored artwork and goofy characters make for a visual treat that goes down sweet. A wide variety of fruits (ranging from apple, lemon, and peach to persimmon, guava, and fig) are represented within the book. This title can be read as a standalone.
VERDICT A berry good pick for emerging readers who enjoy a good rhyme, anytime. Recommended for public and school libraries.
