Samantha Smartypants

    "A third grade girl learns a little about politics---and a lot about friendship and believing in herself...Puccia’s text is

largely straightforward and engaging, which makes it

accessible to early readers...She provides plenty of details

about the basics of real-life presidential elections, and keeps them compelling by weaving them into Samantha’s

personal journey...Puccia’s sympathetic characters will draw readers in. A great way for kids to learn about honesty and the electoral process. ---Kirkus Reviews

 "It was a wonderful read; funny, touching and inspiring. Your  depictions were spot on." ---Reggie Neal, Chief Clinical Officer, United Cerebral Palsy of Hudson County

Samantha Smartypants and the Slippery Slope is a fun elementary level to middle school read ...young readers will   readily relate to Samantha's perspectives, changing world,

and the choices she faces in tackling her greatest fears over

new experiences...highly recommended as a lively read..."

---D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
