After reading 'Star Crossed Rascals', I am hooked on Polly and Gertie. The two bestest friends in the world. Who don't love stories about best friends? They stick together, play together and get in trouble together. That's the best part.
I love the part about the hole in the bathroom. Classic! Just leave it to these two girls to do something like this. It never even crossed my mind there would be a hole in the bathroom. I just thought Polly would fall from the bag. Well done, Patricia Puddle.
Then, there's the part about Mrs. Badger, the mean teacher. That's every child's worst nightmare. Luckily there's Mr. Tenor, the nice teacher with a dog named Jeremiah. Love that name. Also, there's a not-so-bad headmistress Mrs Godbolt. I like her actually.
And then, there's the famous Great Aunt Mabel. What a horrid cook she is! I wouldn't want to eat anything she cooks either!
I love Mange, Polly's dog. He was such a riot, stealing Auntie's teeth (dentures). He was a good boy on the way to the Opera House until in the end, he created such a ruckus, giving the audience a good laugh, including me.
In all, this book is definitely recommended for both kids and adults alike. Well done!

Polly loves singing in the choir. Too bad she's not the best singer. In fact, she's so bad she constantly keeps singing out of tune, which is why her mean teacher has decided to kick her out of the choir before Polly gets to sing at the Opera House. Fortunately for Polly, her best friend, Gertie, is the best singer in school, and Gertie has decided she won't sing either if Polly's not allowed to come along. Now that's what friends are for. And so Polly get sot sing in the choir after all…but only after agreeing to mime. Polly isn’t exactly thrilled, but she gets to be inside the Opera House and that’s bound to count for something. To make matters worse, her mean aunt is staying over for a week and that’s really bad news because Auntie can’t cook. In fact, her concoctions are troublesome for anyone with a healthy stomach, and she’s also not keen on Polly becoming famous. As trouble is mounting up for Polly, she’s thrown into one misadventure after another with a hilarious climax.
This book was a fantastic read with one laugh after another. The writing was suitable for kids, but challenging enough to allow them to learn something along the way. I loved Polly. She’s the perfect endearing little girl who just can’t seem able to stay out of trouble. Would thoroughly recommend to both kids and adults who love to laugh.

Review by: Brae Lynne on Nov. 01, 2011 :
They're back! That mischievious, adventurous, what-can-we-get-into-now duo! Once again Polly and Gertie entertain with the same enthusiastic, pushed to the limits behaviour. Their antics in this story will have kids and fans gut laughing and don't children love to gut laugh.

This time, Polly's dog, Mange gets into the action. Aunt Mabel returns and is as disagreeable as ever. Her cooking skills haven't improved either.

Polly and Gertie take their friendship and troublemaking to a whole new level. Fans won't be disappointed.

Patricia Puddle has a unique gift that reaches children's minds and funny bone. Kudos to the author.
