Have No Fear! (Fix-it Friends)
|Author:||Nicole C. Kear|
|Series:||The Fix-It Friends|
Recess rocks - at least that's what Veronica thinks, but second grader Maya doesn't agree. Maya's so terrified of bugs she chooses to spend every recess in the principal's office. Veronica is intent on helping Maya conquer her fear, but when her tactics misfire (and make a massive mess), Veronica's sure she's made things worse for Maya ...until her mom and dad turn the tide with some good advice. Veronica's best friend Cora, big brother Jude, and Jude's best friend Ezra help rescue Veronica's rescue mission--and the Fix-It Friends are born! Told from Veronica's hilarious perspective, and with a diverse cast, the first adventure in the Fix-It Friends series anchors humour with lots of heart.
Precocious Veronica Conti assembles the Fix-It and helps a friend overcome a phobia.
