Nobody loves Truman Elementary more than Ginny Louise. She didn’t think school could get any better until — School Field Day!

Ball throws, long jumps, tug-of-war, and, to top it all off, a sack race! Ginny Louise is game for it all.

But the Truman Elementary Troublemakers, Cap’n Catastrophe, Destructo Dude, and Make-My-Day May, aren’t playing fair. When they go too far, can Ginny Louise use her irrepressible good humor to give everyone a reason to cheer?

Jaws will drop and eyes will pop before this School Field Day crosses the finish line.

Praise for Ginny Louise and the School Showdown:

“Never underestimate the power of good, especially when it’s wrapped up in as sweet a package as Ginny Louise.”–Kirkus

“This is a fun new take on the anti-bullying story, as Ginny Louise gets her way through optimism, kindness, and sheer stubbornness. Lively illustrations, the subtle Western theme, and a positive message will have kids kicking up their heels in their own hoedowns: yippee-ki-yay!” — Booklist

"Sauer may just be onto something in the struggle against bullying. Never underestimate the power of good, especially when it's wrapped up in as sweet a package as Ginny Louise."—Kirkus
"This is a fun new take on the antibullying story, as Ginny Louise gets her way through optimism, kindness, and sheer stubbornness. The anthropomorphic animal characters-Ginny Louise is a hedgehog, and May is a raccoon-are reminiscent of Kevin Henkes' mouse books and Marc Brown's aardvark Arthur. Lively illustrations, the subtle western theme, and a positive message will have kids kicking up their heels in their own hoedowns: yippee-ki-yay!"—Booklist
