The Barker twins are excited when a new girl, Carole Anne, joins their class. Everyone greets her with smiles, but she is not friendly. She acts very nasty, cuts in line, and picks on Morgie. It's up to Morgie to find out why Carole Anne acts so mean. Newbery Award winner and best-selling author Tomie dePaola brilliantly narrates his story about the primary lessons of friendship, compassion, and understanding.

"The Barker twins have a new student in their class, and her transition does not proceed smoothly. The new student is rude, and the old students are rude in return. Listeners will be able to discern de Paola's intimacy with his story. He reads with the comfort and smoothness of an author who knows his material. For the young girls' parts, he raises his voice at the ends of sentences, making the sentences sounds like questions. As the twins' brother, he sounds protective and caring. This is a good way to help young people understand the importance of befriending new students. A.G.H. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
