When it comes to the main character of Bea Garcia, she loves to do anything that is related to art. She thinks of herself mainly as an artist and tries to get all of the time that she can in when it comes to doing art like drawing. She’ll find time to draw wherever she is, in her notebook and other places too. She’ll draw on a spare piece of paper if she needs to but prefers to draw in her notebook.

Bea Garcia’s best friend in the world is Yvonne. They used to do everything together, but then she had to leave. Yvonne and her parents had to pack up and move to Australia, and now Bea never gets to see her anymore. Bea is really sad about the entire situation and misses having her best friend around so that they can play together. She thought that drawing would help her, but it hasn’t much.

Bea keeps on drawing even though it isn’t helping to distract her in the way that she wants it to. But when a loud boy turns out to be her new neighbor and moves in to the house next door, Bea may finally have a new distraction to keep her occupied at last.

The boy has a lot of energy and is certainly very energetic. He seems able to run around all of the time and they don’t seem to have a lot in common. Yvonne is reserved and quiet and likes to spend her time doing art when she can. This kid loves to be loud and just seems like he is never going to run out of power. The two seem to have no reason to hang out, but Bea doesn’t have a best friend right now.

She decides that she will try to make the most of her friend being gone and the fact that this new kid has moved in. She might even be tempted to make a new friend if things go well. With some doodles and imagination, you are going to love this engaging chapter book. Whether you’re a kid or reading it to one, there’s tons of fun to be had in this work of fiction!

The Curse of Einstein’s Pencil is the sequel to the first novel in Deborah Zemke’s Bea Garcia series. If you enjoyed the debut novel in this chapter series for kids, then you’ll love the illustrated second follow up book where you learn the meaning of friendship!

Bea has always been artistically gifted and loves to draw. But this time her skills could mean that she starts up a new friendship that is more special than ever. This second chapter book series is one of the most hilarious books that you’ll read this year and you may find you and your child laughing out loud when you are recounting the scenes together!

If you love books that are specifically made to be read by kids and entertain them, this is the book for you! When Bea’s artistic talents mean that she makes a new friend, she may have just found a replacement for her best friend that moved away.

She’s been looking for a replacement ever since she realized that she needed to get a new friend to help distract her. Bea thinks that she may have finally found a good candidate. That would be Judith Einstein. Her last name is accurate as she is actually the smartest girl in the entire school. She is a good candidate to be friends with Bea, Bea thinks.

Einstein ends up asking Bea to team up with her for something, and Bea is excited. She wants Bea to join with her as her team mate for a school geography contest that is coming up soon. At first Bea is really happy, but then she’s less happy as she starts to think about just what it is that she agreed to.

The problem is that Einstein is really good at this type of stuff. She’s the smartest student that Bea ever met, so what happens in Bea lets her down? Clearly this artistic girl is the less book smart of the two of them. Judith is really good at school and studying, and Bea needs to figure out how to replicate that.

She starts to think that it might be the pencil that Judith uses. Could that be the source of all her success? Bea just needs to get her hands on it for herself to find out. If she sneaks it away and takes it home, then she can finally figure out what’s going on with it for good. Maybe it will help her impress her friend and they can hang out more.

Will Bea be able to change gears and shine in a contest that is not about drawing at all? Pick up this fun and hilarious book by Deborah Zemke to find out!
