Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 04/01/2023 In Maybe Maybe Marisol Rainey (2021), Marisol overcame her fear of falling and climbed a tree. In Surely Surely Marisol Rainey (2022), she overcame her aversion to sports and learned to play kickball. Now, after her mother teaches her how to interact with unfamiliar dogs, she overcomes her anxiety about encountering Gregory (aka Daggers), a fierce-looking German shepherd; when he gets lost, she befriends him and helps reunite him with his owners. Meanwhile, another story thread reflecting Kelly’s strong understanding of childhood involves Jada, Marisol’s best friend. While Marisol is teaching Felix, a friendly classmate, how to ride a bike, Jada is sometimes downright rude to him. Until it’s explained to her, Marisol doesn’t understand that Jada is afraid of losing her best friend. Throughout the book, Kelly’s appealing grayscale drawings decorate chapter headings and illustrate the characters, settings, and events. The writing is simple enough for readers transitioning to chapter books but never simplistic when portraying characters or creating believable, involving story lines. A satisfying early chapter book for Marisol fans and new readers alike. - Copyright 2023 Booklist.
