REVIEW: Gertrude and Toby's Friday Adventure By Shari Tharp

Gertrude the goat and her best friend Toby the tortoise are adventurers. No sitting around on the boring farm for them! They love to explore, and every Friday they sneak off the farm for some extra fun. One Friday, Gertrude and Toby decide to visit the local candy store in town. They discover yummy goodies and treats, but soon find that the treats are not free!? Uh oh! The market owner grabs Toby. He demands money for the candy that Gertrude and Toby have taken by mistake. Gertrude must find a way to save her friend and get back home before Farmer Sam returns. 

A cute little children's book ideal for 2nd graders. 

Full of adventure . Gertrude and Toby plan a fun adventure while the farmer is gone and run into lots of different obstacles along the way.

A good story about best friends and what they will do for each other. 

Great for children.

5 stars
