Starting with Alice doesn't fill in any important gaps in the backstory and, in fact, creates a few discrepancies-Alice has a good time with her cousin Carol in this prequel, but in The Agony of Alice, she doesn't remember who Carol is. Nevertheless, this cheerful addition will find a ready audience. Nevertheless, this cheerful addition will find a ready audience among the younger siblings of Alice fans as well as the devoted older fans themselves, to whom Alice feels like a friend.

With no mother, no friends in her new third grade class, and not even a pet to play with, eight-year-old Alice finds life to be quite difficult, yet her developing friendship with her next-door-neighbor, Donald, makes things a bit better until Donald's divorced mother starts making the moves on her father.
I discovered the Alice series recently and I have now read 6 of Phyllis Naylor's books. I am looking forward to reading the Alice series books to my two dear granddaughters who are 7 and 9 year old sisters. I'm sure they will enjoy the Alice stories as they will readily relate to and identify with the characters that are portrayed so very realistically.

I have been deeply moved by each of the 4 "Alice" books I've read so far. I have found myself tearing up and just plain crying as I read these stories and, when I read the story called "A String of Chances", I was in tears almost non-stop as I read the last four chapters. I ordered this book online so I can have it for the girls to read a few years from now when they are a bit older and can more readily relate to the main, older character. We'll start with the Alice series and characters that are more nearly the same ages as my granddaughters.

Although I have read a number of outstanding books for children - and for adults - over the years and I have occasionally found myself moved to tears as I've read parts of some of them, I don't think I have ever been as moved by a story and the characters in a story as I have upon reading these six books by Ms. Naylor.

I look forward to reading more of Ms. Naylor's stories and sharing them with my loving and loved granddaughters.

Our 8 year old daughter absolutely looooved the Shiloh series by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. When she finished the series, I scoured the internet to see what else Phyllis Reynolds Naylor has written. I read the reviews on the Alice series and purchased the first one, "Starting with Alice". Our daughter, now 9, loved the book so much that here we are ordering Alice in Blunderland. It's going to be a sweet summer of reading =)
This novel is light and sweet regarding the story and relationship between Alice and her pet. The vocabulary is perfect for a 3rd or 4th grader. So is the subject manner. I really enjoyed it.
This was a gift for a grand daughter and she enjoyed these books when she was younger and wants to collect the series.
I have not read the kindle version yet, but I read the hard back when I was younger! It is a great story about growing up!
Got this book today. Seems to have all it's pages! ;) Definitely worth buying a used copy. Looks brand new!!
My daughter has read this book over and over again- she loves it!
The lovably awkward heroine of Phyllis Reynolds Naylor’s popular Alice series is back in a sweet prequel that casts her as a hapless third grader about to start school in a brand new state. Following the death of her mother, Alice McKinley finds herself moving across the country to Maryland with her music store manager father and her teenage brother Lester.

If only starting over was easy for Alice, who gets off to a rough start. It seems like everybody at school already has a best friend (or two, in some cases!) and poor Alice is just stuck hanging out with the weird boy who lives next door. Even worse: she seems to have made quite a few enemies on her quest to find friendship—an older crossing guard and a pack of attached-at-the-hip girls known as the Terrible Triplets have it in for her, and she even gets herself landed in the principal’s office for telling a big fib to her classmates.

Without a mother to help guide her, how can Alice ever expect to navigate her way through this new school? The answer, of course, is with pluck and determination that middle and older readers will relate to and cheer for.
