Grace is an interesting girl. Her plea to her teacher to be called "just Grace" in the face of four girls with the same name in her class turns that simple request into her nickname for the rest for the year. Just Grace like photography, cats, drawing comics and her downstairs neighbour who is a fashionable French flight attendant. She does not like Sammy (who spit grape juice on her at her 6th birthday party), Grace F. (who is just a big meanie) and being called "Just Grace".

When Grace learns that her next door neighbour, Mrs. Luther has plenty of reasons to be sad (not the least of which is regular visits from the above mentioned Sammy), she becomes determined to cheer her up. With help of her best friend Mimi, Grace makes postcards of Mrs. Luther's cat Crinkles to send to her. When Crinkles goes missing, Grace knows she has to find her before someone blames her for the disappearance.

This is a lovely early chapter book for girls in Grade 2 & 3. Grace's love of comics gives the author the narrative excuse to insert illustrations in the story, making it an easier read for the beginning reader. Good for any library or primary teacher collection.
