Experience the epic highs and lows of life in a second grade classroom in this hilarious new chapter book series! 

In Buddy and Bea: Not Really Buddies, Buddy is absolutely prepared for second grade. His best friend is in the same class and he knows where he has to go, so he’s all set for a great year. But then, he meets Bea, who is his opposite in every possible way. Can they get along?

In Buddy and Bea: Tiny Tornadoes, it’s the second week of school and Buddy is wondering: Is the other second grade class better than the one he’s in? Can his class compete with them? Or as his teacher Ms. Maple points out, is competition even necessary? Meanwhile, Buddy and Bea are still figuring out how to coexist, making plenty of missteps along the way.

“Mukai’s boisterous cartoon illustrations are full of action and complement the energetic text. A funny and likable unlikely buddy comedy for independent readers.”—Booklist
