An ordinary grandmother, just like any other grandmother, her mother claimed. But Belinda's grandmother is anything but ordinary! She's witch with a very bossy, superior Siamese cat. Belinda's life suddenly becomes full of new friends and very unusual adventures.


    The school holidays get off to a bad start with rain and Belinda's father's disappearance. The news that his car went over the cliff into the surf beach is only softened slightly by the fact that the police can find no body. Belinda, her mother and friend Kate stay at the beach house of a friend to be near where the car went over. Belinda thinks her father washed up further along the coastline and perhaps could be sick or ill somewhere in the back country. 

    To keep from constant worry, the girls discover how unusual their three kittens are. When held, all animal speech can be understood. With the help of the kittens, the three girls spend their wet school holidays searching. Joining their quest are a helpful dog, grouchy possums and a dopey old horse. Can Belinda's father be found before it's too late?

Now that she's in fifth grade, Mr. Soren, the coolest teacher in the Universe, is her teacher once again. But unfathomably, he's now worse than Miss Boggs, all because he's making the class keep a journal of all the things that happen in their lives. What'd Bernie expected to be a wonderful fifth grade year is off to a really revolting start.

    BRAIN MAN

    Randy O'Rourke wants the robot he built named Brain to be as "Super Colossal" as those at Future World, an amusement park where robots do all the work. Brain doesn't disappoint him. He does Randy's homework and chores--plus some things he wasn't intended to do. His red heart glows in response to compliments. He blinks when touched. He uses "mind talk" to communicate with Randy. However, some of Brain's unprogrammed actions are less endearing. From minor glitch to major disaster, the robot provokes a series of escalating problems. Although Brain is out of control, Randy can't escape that the robot is almost human…and he loves the big pest. 


    DOUBLE TROUBLE DITTO BOX

When he wants a premium baseball glove like his friend Jake's, he puts his friend's glove in, and--voila!--a duplicate comes out. If Randy and Jake want pizza, he orders one, makes a copy, and they eat two. Randy copies homework, games and even Asthma, Jake's furry mutt. Everything is going great until his little sister wants a playmate. Twozy, as Suzy names her "twin", looks and whines just like Suzy. Mom and Dad are mad at Randy for doubling their trouble, and he has to babysit more girls more often. Two sisters are twice as bad as one! How can he get rid of the new one?
