*Disney-Hyperion sent me a copy to check out, and is partnering with me for a giveaway!

Ever feel like the whole world is upside down?

I know that back to school season can make everything go a little haywire (or “pear-shaped” as my late father in law always said). Riley and Dylan are still going to the same school, but they have new teachers, new students in the classes, and new routines. Beatrice Zinker has the same problems in Disney-Hyperion’s Beatrice Zinker, Upside-Down Thinker by Shelley Johannes.

Hanging from trees by her knees, doing handstands . . . for Beatrice Zinker, upside down works every time. She was definitely upside down when she and her best friend, Lenny, agreed to wear matching ninja suits on the first day of third grade. But when Beatrice shows up at school dressed in black, Lenny arrives with a cool new outfit and a cool new friend. Even worse, she seems to have forgotten all about the top-secret operation they planned!


I felt like this was a good book for my daughter Riley who just entered 2nd grade. Not only is she an avid reader, she also has a great way of looking at life and solving problems. She, like Beatrice Zinker, looks at the issue from all angles (literally) and comes up with a solution for the problem. Often unconventional, but always thoughtful. She relates SO well to Beatrice Zinker, you would think the story was written about her! And she’s obviously very into it too…

I am partnering with Disney-Hyperion to give you a giveaway so you can experience a new way of looking at things with Beatrice Zinker!

One winner will receive:

  • Copy of Beatrice Zinker, Upside Down Thinker
  • Branded pencil case and notepad
  • Plus a $100 Visa gift card

It’s a GREAT way to get your child a book and Back-to-School look that is just  so her (or him!).

Enter below! Ends October 10, 2017!
