I did a mean thing.
A very mean thing.
I HATE that I did it.
But I did.
This is worse than
carrot juice on a cupcake
or a wasp on my pillow
or a dress that’s too tight at the neck.

In the third installment from the team who created Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie and Like Bug Juice on a Burger, Eleanor’s relationship with her best friend, Pearl, experiences its first growing pains. When a glamorous new student transfers to school, at first Eleanor’s excited about the possibility of a new friend. But when Pearl is assigned to be the new girl’s buddy, Eleanor fears she can’t compete. To make matters worse, Eleanor’s been chosen for the lead role in the springtime musical, which means she has to sing a solo in front of the entire school!
From overcoming stage fright to having a secret crush, young readers will relate to Eleanor as she navigates the bittersweet waters of growing up.

Praise for Like Carrot Juice on a Cupcake
STARRED REVIEW
"Sternberg again displays her talent at putting Eleanor on the horns of a common youthful dilemma in accessible prose."
--Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review

"This is another very true-to-life story about the challenges of growing up. Julie Sternberg captures young emotions so perfectly!"
--School Library Monthly

"The measures Eleanor takes to right her wrongs and rise to challenges are beautifully revealed in Sternberg’s spare text, which leaves plenty of room for the reader to
empathize. Like Eleanor, this series continues to grow and blossom."
--Booklist

"The pen and ink drawings capture facial expressions and emotions quite well. A good addition for most early-chapter-book collections."
--School Library Journal

About the Author:

Julie Sternberg received her MFA in writing for children from the New School. She is the author of Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie and Like Bug Juice on a Burger. She lives in Brooklyn. Matthew Cordell is the illustrator of Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie, Like Bug Juice on a Burger, Bat and Rat, and Trouble Gum. He lives outside Chicago.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–4—Continuing the story begun in Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie (2011) and Like Bug Juice on a Burger (2013, both Abrams), Eleanor learns some hard lessons about friendship, responsbility, and courage. She and her best friend spend Mondays and Wednesdays at her house after school while Pearl's mom is still at work. Then the Biggs family moves to town, and young Ainsley needs extra help getting caught up with her school work. Pearl is assigned to be her buddy and help her—but the only time they can meet is on Mondays and Wednesdays. Eleanor feels left out as the two girls develop a fast friendship. Meanwhile, her parents send her puppy away for two weeks of doggie training camp after several incidents at home. In an attempt to help her friend feel less lonely, Pearl volunteers her to audition for the spring play, even though Eleanor is terrified of singing in front of a large crowd. With all this going on, Eleanor finally cracks and tells the whole class a secret about Ainsley that Pearl had told her (when she was not supposed to), and she learns that making amends sometimes requires a lot of effort, persistance, and bravery. She also learns to face her fears about performing. The sparse style of the occasional pen and ink drawings capture facial expressions and emotions quite well. A good addition for most early-chapter-book collections.—Amy Commers, South St. Paul Public Library, MN
