Marion Takes a Break

(Book #4 of The Critter Club)
Illustrated by: Marsha Riti
For Ages: 5 - 9
When an injury slows her down, Marion counts on The Critter Club to help her realize what’s most important.

From violin lessons to training for an upcoming horse competition, Marion is scheduled to the max. Even though she always makes time for her duties at The Critter Club, she is beginning to feel overwhelmed. But when an accident forces Marion to slow down, Marion relies on her friends (the two- and four-legged ones) to cheer her up! As Marion’s ankle heals, she discovers a new talent—and realizes that winning isn’t everything.

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, The Critter Club chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.

About the Author

Callie Barkley

Callie Barkley loves animals. As a young girl, she dreamed of getting a cat or dog of her own until she discovered she was allergic to most of them. It was around this time that she realized the world was full of all kinds of critters that could use some love. She now lives with her husband and two kids in Connecticut. They share their home with exactly ten fish and a very active ant farm.
