Ellen TebbitsBook - 1951
Ellen Tebbits has an embarrassing secret that she'll never share with anyone. That is, until she meets Austine--and discovers that Austine has the exact same secret! Soon the girls are best friends who do everything together--attending dance class, riding horses, and dodging pesky Otis Spofford, the neighborhood troublemaker.
But then Ellen does something terrible . . . and now Austine isn't speaking to her. Ellen desperately wants her best friend back. How can she show Austine how sorry she is?
Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary brings her warm humor to this funny story of a girl readers will recognize--and love.
