About The Book

In the eighteenth Heidi Heckelbeck adventure, Heidi is stuck between her two best friends who have turned into two worst enemies. And she’ll need more than a little magic to bring them back together!

Heidi learns that words can hurt when an embarrassing rumor about Lucy spreads at school. What’s worse is that Lucy thinks Bruce is behind it—and she’s ready to spill some of his secrets for revenge. Stuck between her two best friends, can Heidi find a way to bring everyone back together before the trio splits up forever?

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost ever page of this extra-long story, the Heidi Heckelbeck chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.


Heidi Heckelbeck and the Big Mix-Up




Fall leaves swirled and ticked the panes of Heidi’s window. She pulled the hem of her quilt up to her chin. I love fall! she said to herself happily. Then she remembered something else she loved: sweater weather! And the best part was, Heidi had a brand-new sweater.

She hopped out of bed and slipped on her fuzzy bunny slippers. Then she shuffled to her dresser and opened the bottom drawer. There it was—her new light-gray sweater. It had pink buttons up the front and pink stripes down the sleeves. On the lower right-hand side, sat an embroidered brown mouse in a white teacup. Heidi had gotten the sweater at Miss Harriet’s store.

And now I finally get to wear it! she thought. She pulled on a jean skirt and a yellow tank top. Then she snuggled into her new sweater. She posed this way and that in front of the mirror. “Oh, it’s SO cute!” she declared. Then she skipped downstairs to breakfast.

“Mmm,” she murmured as she stepped into the kitchen. “What smells so good?”

Henry tapped the side of his head with his finger. “Hmm, let me think,” he said. “Probably not YOU!”

Heidi rolled her eyes.

“It’s cinnamon-apple oatmeal,” said Dad, stirring a pan on the stove. He had on Mom’s red-checked apron.
