Why would Andy Shane want to go to school? All Dolores Starbuckle ever does is tattle on him, correct him, or attempt to outshine him in every area. With Granny's help, Andy figures out how to stand up to Dolores in a way that empowers him and transforms her. With insight and humor, a common childhood struggle is presented in a fresh, endearing story with a character that young readers will easily champion.

Professional reviews

"How does one deal with a bully? Find an ally! Andy has the best one of all--his Granny Webb is there to support and encourage him while also helping the bossy Delores learn an important lesson. Rachel Lillis narrates with aplomb. She nimbly switches between well-voiced characters, moving the story along at a pace suitable for enjoying its important moments. Lillis reads with a slight undercurrent of humor in her tone--as if she and the listener are in on some inside joke. We know Andy will survive Delores. Lillis ably captures the personalities of the characters and brings this universal story to life. Fun listening--again and again. J.K.R.
