The Big Hairy Secret

Flo Gardner isn't exactly thrilled when she and her mom move into Corman Towers, a giant apartment building in the middle of the city. To call their new home strange is an understatement. And things only get weirder when she meets Ferdinand, better known as Furry. It doesn't take Flo long to realize that there's more than one secret lurking in her new home.

Reviews

Publishers Weekly

"Flo is a cool and collected narrator while Furry makes an endearingly rattled sidekick. Gilpin's dynamic cartoons, a mix of spot and full-page art, help bring the story's creepy comedy to life." - Publishers Weekly

Kirkus Reviews

"Troupe’s series kickoff is a slightly spooky and little-bit-goofy tale for those just starting chapter books. Gilpin’s occasional black-and-white, pen-and-ink cartoon illustrations are a nice match. Glossary, questions and prompts at the close provide some educational backbone to the entertainment. Chapter-book readers should latch onto it." - Kirkus Reviews

Library Media Connection - Susan A.M. Poulter, Cataloguing Librarian, Nashville (Tennessee) Public Library

"This book will have young readers clamoring for the next book in the series. . . .The quick pace and illustrations will appeal to reluctant readers, while the inclusion of a glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts will add to its appeal for teachers. When the books are as enjoyable as this one, there’s certainly room on the shelf for more paranormal titles." - Library Media Connection
