Previously published as Piper Reed, the Great Gypsy. Piper's dad—the Navy Chief—might be gone again, but Piper's got plenty to keep her busy at home: new neighbors, a spaceship beach house, a trip to New Orleans, and most important, the upcoming Gypsy Club pet show. Piper is determined to win, but teaching tricks to her dog seems nearly impossible. Bruna is simply unteachable! Or is she? Join Piper as she embarks on new and exciting adventures!

Piper is a spunky heroine with lots of spirit—she's both kindhearted and bossy as she tries to find her place in the world as the middle sister.

My little sister, Sam, knelt on the sofa, staring out the window. Our next-door neighbors moved off base last week, and she was watching for our new neighbors to arrive.

Praise for Piper Reed, Clubhouse Queen

“Piper's first-person narration will win over many readers with its accessible depiction of family's ups and downs. . . . Davenier's line-and-wash drawings illustrate the episodic story with wry humor.” —Booklist
