“Squishy Taylor and the Bonus Sisters” by Alisa Wild immediately caught the attention of Michael, age 9, chief of the Roving Reader Leaders.
It was delivered to our door for Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2018 by Capstone Publishing. After quickly reading this first book, Michael insisted on going to the bookstore and getting the rest in the series.
Here’s what he had to say about the first book:
A day later, he got his hands on a few more “Squishy Taylor” books, but complained that he hadn’t found all of them. Here he gives the series a 100-million-star rating!

In Squishy Taylor, dark-skinned Squishy finds herself in a stepfamily with two stepsisters, aka bonus sisters. The kids aren’t crazy about the stepfamily situation at first, but connect with each other when they try to solve a mystery together. The book has a beautiful cover and is engaging and fun. We love that the girls learn to get along–and meet all kinds of interesting characters along the way.
