Marty McGuire by Kate Messner

Cover image for Marty McGuireMarty McGuire would rather be catching frogs with the boys than playing dress-up with the girls.  She is, therefore, not pleased when she gets the part of the princess in the class production of "The Frog Prince".  Luckily one of her frog hunting buddies has the part of the frog, and together they decide to spice up the production with a little some help from nature.  In the process Marty discovers that being a princess and a naturalist don't have to be mutually exclusive.  This is a fun little intermediate reader.  Plenty of tomboys out there will relate with Marty's affinity with muddy sneakers and love of Jane Goodall.(129 p.)
