There were four girls named Grace in Miss Lois's class. Three of the girls became known by initials after their first names, such as, "Grace F." Asking Miss Lois if she could be the one to be called just "Grace," our heroine was dubbed, "Just Grace" forever. (Once something was written in the teacher's class attendance book, "it can never be changed even if it is written in pencil!") Just Grace enlists her best friend Mimi, who lives next door, in her scheme to show her parents that she is responsible enough to have a dog; a real dog, not just a cardboard one.

This book, the third in the "Just Grace" series, easily stands on its own. Young readers will be captivated by the funny escapades of an imaginative girl.
