What's Up With You, Taquandra Fu?
written by Matt Cibula illustrated by Brian Strassburg
You begged. You pleaded. You sent bribes. (oh, by the way, thank you.) Now your prayers have been answered. From the creators of The Contrary Kid comes the long-awaited sequel, and its start does not disappoint. Taquandra Fu rides the Soul Train to school, snacks on hay and olives (what?), and hangs out with a squid. She tries hard to just be herself, even if everyone always asks her: "What's Up With You, Taquandra Fu?" The book is filled with silly and ingenious rhymes and illustrations, and it features a glow-in-the-dark cover and a secret code!
