"An easy-to-read story about friendship."
-- School Library Journal
In this Level 3 chapter book for newly independent readers, Walter's favorite cousin, Howie, comes for a visit. Iris expected the three of them to have lots of fun fishing and learning magic tricks. Instead, Iris feels left out and worries she will lose her best friend. Like other Iris and Walter books in the Green Light Reader series, this story addresses common childhood situations with sensitivity and honesty. Storyline also creates opportunities to talk about bullying behaviors, and, ultimately, shows characters developing clever ways to resolve their troubles.
