Ms. Rapscott is the headmistress of Great Rapscott School for Girls of Busy Parents - and soon enough, five boxes come and land in front of her in the lighthouse that serves as her school. She opens them all up and finds four students: Beatrice, Fay, Mildred and Annabelle. But where is the fifth student? Her parents were too busy to properly close the box, and she fell out! The four girls, along with Ms. Rapscott, look for Dalia while learning other things that their parents were too busy to each them - like how to cross the street without getting squashed. As they learn and search, they find clues. But will they find her?
I like Ms Rapscott's Girls because it is silly and adventurous. I also like the characters, and altogether it is wonderful. I highly recommend Ms Rapscott's Girls to readers.
Note: Elise Primavera published a sequel, called "Making Mistakes on Purpose," which we also enjoyed greatly! -July 4, 2017
