The Ellie McDoodle Diaries: Book 6
Ellie for President
One girl. One sketchbook.
Three opponents. One election.
And one school newspaper job which Ellie loves
and has to give up.
When Ellie McDoodle starts a school newspaper, she gets the
scoop on the upcoming class officer elections. Ellie's friends
and family convince her to run for president, so she starts
a campaign (with lots of creative posters and props, of course).
But when the competition gets tough, Ellie is nervous about
running against her classmates and her new crush.
With a paper-over-board format that's right in line with
mega-selling diary series, this book's personality-filled art is
perfect for kids looking for their next diary fix. Readers will want to
vote for Ellie as they follow the relatable emotions surrounding the
class elections and Ellie's first crush.
What the reviewers say:
From School Library Journal:
Gr 3–5—In this sixth installment of the popular epistolary series,
Ellie's family encourages her to run for class president.
She quickly throws herself into the campaign, but soon
becomes wary of competing against her friends—and
her secret crush. Purchase where McDoodle fans thrive.
Part diary, part novel, all fun.

Part journal, part graphic novel, all fun (with echoes of
Harriet the Spy), this is a clever account of a growing-up
experience that is familiar to middle-grade readers.

"I am always on the lookout for great books to serve as models
for kids' own writers' notebooks. This is one I'll add to my collection."
