Rediscover Judy Blume’s beloved classic chapter books—The Pain and the Great One, The One in the Middle Is a Green Kangaroo, and Freckle Juice—now available together in a collectible boxed set!
No one knows more about growing up than Judy Blume. And in her classic chapter books, full of humor and heart, she tells it like it is to even the youngest readers. From Andrew, who is so desperate to get freckles of his own he’s willing to do anything, including drinking a very suspicious concoction, to the Pain and the Great One who squabble over who mom and dad love best, to Freddy who just wants a way to break out of being smooshed in the middle and stand out, there’s something for everybody in this collection.
