About the Edition

When fat Elsie Edwards walks into Jenny Sawyer's fifth grade class, she's the last person Jenny expects to be friendly with. Elsie is not only fat, she steals everyone's lunch money to buy candy. And when the book club money disappears, the whole class is punished.

Nothing's fair!

The teacher, Mrs. Hanson, ins very strict. Fractions are impossible. And Jenny is assigned as Elsie's guide in school. Nothing's fair!

But Elsie urns out to be a math genius. She helps Jenny learn fractions. Elsie's diet begins to work. Then Jenny and her friends discover that Elsie's fat really covers up a good friend. Nothing's fair--but some things are not as bad as they seem!
