Loosely organized around the theme of Compliments for Classmates and a school year, this second book continues the exploits of the Herdmans. Beth is our narrator and Imogene Herdman is in her class. The assignment is to think of one genuine compliment for each classmate. Then one name will be assigned to you for additional accolades. What if Beth draws Imogene? Will she be able to think of enough good things to say? Beth keeps track of the things she observes about Imogene. How Imogene is sympathetic when a little boy needs his blanket. How she figures out a way to help little Boyd get his head out of the bike rack. Perhaps there is more to this family than meets the eye. A great reminder to value those who are different from us. Perfect for fans of 'Homer Price' and 'Mercy Watson.'
