#MMBBR #Giveaway #BeatriceZinker #UpsideDownThinker by @shelleyjohannes thanks to @disneyhyperion @DisneyBooks #FirstLine


Beatrice Zinker, Upside Down Thinker
By Shelley Johannes
Release September 19, 2017
Recommended for ages 9-12

About the Book
Beatrice does her best thinking upside down.

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!

Can Beatrice use her topsy-turvy way of thinking to save the mission, mend their friendship, and flip things sunny-side up?


#FirstLine ~ Beatrice Zinker always did her best thinking upside down.  

We are upside down thinkers in this house.  We also think sideways and sunny side up and all ways in between. We tackle problems head on with honesty, humor and heart. We stick together like glue and know that there is nothing we cannot face. 

This story is sheer delight and I adored it cover to cover. How can you not love Beatrice. She is everything I would hope to be and more. Her zany personality and approach to life is so refreshing. She has a way about her that is inspiring to others and I love that she is a girl that never gives up. We can all learn a thing or two from Beatrice. I want every kid to read this book and discuss it. There are gems of wisdom in this book that will certainly be helpful to young readers. I highly recommend this book.
