The first entry in the Carver Chronicles series introduces the reader to Gavin, the new kid at Carver Elementary. This is the same school where Nikki and Deja are students, in another of English's early chapter book series. Gavin makes a new friend, Richard, but almost immediately gets into huge trouble when he and Richard break his older sister's Danielle's beloved snow globe. When Gavin's Great-Aunt Myrtle moves in for a week and needs Gavin to walk her Pomeranian Carlotta every day, Gavin has the opportunity to earn money to pay Danielle back for the snow globe. This new series has great potential for early readers looking for stories about kids with every day concerns.
