About the Book

Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary brings her warm humor to this funny story of a girl readers will recognize—and love.

This funny realistic friendship story captures the intensity of kids' emotions and is the second book beloved author Beverly Cleary published.

Ellen Tebbits has an embarrassing secret that she'll never share with anyone. That is, until she meets Austine—and discovers that Austine has the exact same secret! Soon the girls are best friends who do everything to­gether—attending dance class, riding horses, and dodging pesky Otis Spofford, the neighborhood troublemaker.

But then Ellen does something terrible . . . and now Austine isn't speaking to her. Ellen desperately wants her best friend back. How can she show Austine how sorry she is?

Ellen Tebbits is a funny school and friendship story that stands the test of time—perfect for independent reading for second and third graders.

Critical Praise

“Ellen and her troubles are both funny and touching; we meet her trying to hide her long underwear at dancing school, and playing a substitute rat in The Pied Piper.’ All is told with a downright realism, and the school scenes are choice.” - New York Herald Tribune

“Ellen is a real girl and her adventures are full of zest and interest!” - The Horn Book

“Through all Ellen’s joys and sorrows runs a thread of humor that makes the reader chuckle even when he is sympathizing with her.” - Saturday Review
