About the Book

In her three popular Claudia books, Barbara Brooks Wallace has created stories that have appealed to boys and girls alike. Misunderstood by her parents, snubbed by a former best friend, on the “outs” at school because of unjust rumors, and finally, forbidden by her family from playing with her only remaining friend, Claudia’s story comes to such a satisfying conclusion kids have written that they wish this would happen to them!

“Funny all the way through—dialogue, situations, descriptions.”
