Fourth grade is a year of changes, challenges, and ordinary joys for India McAllister.  She lives in Maine with her artist mom and their dog, Tofu.  Her father lives in the next town over with his new partner, Richard and their bird, Beatrice Strawberry.  India – named for the ink, not the subcontinent – was adopted from China as a baby.  Being the only Chinese girl in her small town fuels India’s search for identity.  India reports in her own words and drawings about life, adventures (many with her good friend Colby) and all things annoying as well as what makes her happy.  First three on the happy list: Tofu, Bird, and Colby!
 
The Accidental Adventures of India McAllister is a 2011 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Praise for The Accidental Adventures of India McAllister

An ALA Rainbow Top Ten Book
 

“Illustrated with India’s captioned drawings, the engaging first-person narrative centers on one child’s concerns, captures the emotional nuances of her relationships with others, and includes well-defined portrayals of adults as well as children. A promising start for the series.” --Booklist

 

Enjoyable, engaging and emotionally resonant.” --Kirkus Reviews

 

"A delightful addition to the middle-grade canon."-- Publisher's Weekly
