Mae and June and the Wonder Wheel

Mae and June and the Wonder Wheel. Charise Mericle Harper. 2017. HMH. 128 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Sammy is my best friend. He has four legs, really soft ears, and a tail that can wag slow, medium, and super-fast.

Premise/plot: June is looking for a new friend. She's looking for someone who is fun, friendly, and full of adventure. Sammy, her dog, will help her be a judge of who's got potential in the friend department. Sammy is a talking dog. (Does he really talk? Well, that's up to readers, I suppose. June is a believer that they speak the same language.) There's a new girl moving in next door that maybe just maybe has all three f's. Her name is Mae. In this one there's no such thing as instant best friends. Everyone in their class wants Mae's attention. And Mae isn't in a hurry to pick anyone to be her number one best friend. What makes this school-friendship adventure fun is the introduction of the Wonder Wheel. The Wonder Wheel is a present from June's grandmother...

My thoughts: This one is very cute. It has things like On-the-Ground-Disco-Dancing. The text is fun, lively, and quick. I would definitely be interested in reading more Mae and June books if this is a new early chapter book series.
