Banana Pants! (Miranda and Maude #2) By Emma Wunsch Illustrator Jessika von Innerebner Imprint: Amulet Books
Miranda and Maude were a big hit and this is not the first time, but it is always a good sign when we get the second book for review and our daughter is requesting to first book to make sure she gets some more information on the characters. While you do not need to read the first book in the series, your children will want to after they have a fun time reading the Banana Pants! This is another series that she has now put on her “have to read it when the next book comes out” list.
Princess Miranda and Not-a-Princess Maude are total opposites and totally best friends! Fed up with nonstop testing, Miranda and Maude’s teacher makes a surprise announcement: They are going to put on a school play! And, the class decides, it will be called Banana Pants! School is finally a joy, and the project inspires the girls to fight for more positive change. Maude decides to wage a campaign against Styrofoam lunch trays, and she thinks she has the perfect powerful ally in Miranda. But, much to Maude’s frustration, Miranda would rather focus on her own good cause: love! The girls can’t seem to see eye to eye, and in pursuing their good causes separately, they go way too far, resulting in the friendship’s first-ever fight.
