“Her real name is Eleanor McDougal. Her friends call her Ellie McDoodle because she’s always doodling in her sketch journals. She spies on people and carries a sketch journal EVERYWHERE. She keeps track of everything including games, crafts, ideas, pranks, people, animals, nature… you name it, it’s in her book and Ellie has an opinion on it.”- visit the author’s website here for more info!
“Part journal, part graphic novel, all fun (with echoes of Harriet the Spy), this is a clever account of a growing-up experience that familiar to middle-grade readers.” –Kirkus Reviews
