Mallory McDonald is turning nine! And she is ready to celebrate getting the past year over--one troubled with moving, starting a new school, making new friends, and sibling rivalry. 
Mallory wants her ninth birthday to be extra special.
So instead of celebrating just one day, she plans an entire "birth month" celebration.
But soon, things aren't going according to plan, and Mallory fears that being nine may be just as difficult as being eight.


"Mallory's enthusiasm is infectious. 
Cartoonlike drawings and large print make the story accessible to early chapter-book readers." -- School Library Journal

  •     I am so sad that the book is ended. It's great. I liked the suprise, and funnynis it was good.

  •     My 9 year old is not all that into reading but she loves this series...

  •     I liked this book because Mallory was just like me. For example, she wanted to celebrate her birthday for an entire month and so do I! One thing the author did well was she included a lot of detail and creativity. I think this book is great for kids because it tells us that everything will turn out great. My favorite character was Mallory because when bad things happened, she got through it. I would recommend this book because it is funny, detailed, and creative.

  •     My 6 year old grandaughter loves the Mallory books...they are cute andfunny without being "over the top" and all seem to have a subtle lesson.She is a new reader and really enjoys the stories and finds them easy toread...Love the series for her and we can enjoy them together!!
