Description
Students at a whimsical school for children of busy parents learn silly lessons about manners, friendship, and going far in life, in book two of the series that’s tailor-made for a new generation of Mary Poppins fans

Great Rapscott School for Girls of Busy Parents is not your typical boarding school. Students arrive in boxes, birthday cake is served for breakfast, and two very talented corgis assist the rather quirky headmistress. This semester, the girls will learn how to get to The Top, but the semester is not off to a good start. One of the girls doesn’t make it back to school and when her friends try to rescue her, they wind up at the Bottom of the Barrel. Luckily, Ms. Rapscott knows that learning to fail is the secret to Going Far in life. 
Complete with charming black-and-white illustrations, this sequel to Ms. Rapscott’s Girls is full of, warmhearted lessons, spirited adventure, and good cheer.

        Welcome back to the Great Rapscott School for Girls of Busy Parents!The fall semester's lesson: How to Go Far in Life; the goal: to earn the Great Rapscott Medal for Reaching The Top. As the offbeat Ms. Rapscott reasons, "you cannot reach The Top unless you go far," but you must also fail several times in the attempt by making mistakes on purpose. However, there is only one place to begin: The Bottom. This time, Bea, Mildred, Annabelle, and Dahlia are present and accounted for, while Fay, having "failed in the best possible way," is accidentally delivered to The Top on her way to school. With her signature quirky logic, Ms. Rapscott also teaches the girls How to Celebrate a Birthday and How to Make a Bad Day Good. As in the first book, Ms. Rapscatt's Girls (2015), the emphasis is on building a tone that combines the merry and the Gothic rather than on deep character development The novel hits a pothole with its lack of racial diversity; there's a brief reference to former students being of "every color, size, and shape," but hazy descriptions support inferences that the characters are white, an impression reinforced by the black-and-white illustrations. A spot of body diversity labels Mildred as "plump," but her fatness is a source of shame. A reading of the first book is a must in order to fully enjoy and appreciate this unpretentiously lesson-drenched sequel. (Fiction. 8-12) COPYRIGHT(1) Kirkus Reviews, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

        September 1, 2016

        Gr 3-6-The fall term at Great Rapscott School for Girls of Busy Parents is just beginning, and the girls are back for more Rapscott-style learning and lessons. After being packed and shipped in convenient, self-addressed boxes (because their parents are just so busy), the girls magically fly to the school. The girls are sent into a tailspin of learning led by the ever-positive Ms. Rapscott and her two faithful corgi assistants, Lewis and Clark. This year's curriculum includes How To Cure a Case of Hurt Feelings, How To Share, and To Go Far in Life You Must Get Used to Disappointment. Although there are plenty of lessons to be learned along the way, there is an underlying theme of understanding others and oneself. This sequel to the popular Ms. Rapscott's Girls is full of quirky humor. Primavera uses the same soft pencil artwork seen in the previous volume to sketch the tale into life. Here the characters become further developed and relatable. For those who read and enjoyed the first installment, this sequel enhances the story, gives deeper life to characters, and provides a greater depth in the novel's setting. VERDICT Purchase where there are fans of the first book.-Brittney Kosev, Honey/Rush Elementary, Lubbock, TX
