Add to Cart:


by Jerdine Nolen       Illustrated by Karen Lee Schmidt

The fun-to-read 7-chapter story and bright, cheery illustrations welcome kids to the world of books.
Max and Jax await the bell on the last day of second grade. The twin alligators will kick off the summer with a slumber party for Jax and a special fishing trip for Max. But even though their adventures don't go exactly as they'd planned, Max and Jax come to realize that being a twin means always having a very special friend.

These siblings love to fish, but Jax always catches more fish than Max.
What's her secret?
