Full of Beansby Jennifer L. Holm
The book so many kids, teachers, and librarians have been waiting for: A companion to the beloved, bestselling, and Newbery-Honoree Turtle in Paradise!
Grown ups lie. That’s one truth Beans knows for sure. He and his gang know how to spot a whopper a mile away, because they are the savviest bunch of barefoot conchs (that means “locals”) in all of Key West. Not that Beans really minds; it’s 1934 and the middle of the Great Depression. With no jobs on the island, and no money anywhere, who can really blame the grownups for telling a few tales? Besides, Beans isn’t anyone’s fool. In fact, he has plans. Big plans. And the consequences might surprise even Beans himself.
