Morals and Minis in Marsha Mellow Goes Missing An Unofficial Story for Shopkins Collectors

Ask anyone that knows me very well, I am a strong advocate for summer reading, fall reading, winter and spring reading. Literacy is a guiding force in my life, and also the life of our family. It was a delightful pleasure for me to take a little time to away from my regular routine of  professional development, self-help and pre-school bestsellers, to join Maggie and her friends from the Shopkins Kids Club on a fun adventure.
My most recent chick-lit pick was Marsha Mellow Goes Missing: An Unofficial Story for Shopkins Collectors (The Unofficial Shopkins Collectors), written by author Kenley Shay. Being relatively new to the world of Shopkins, this brand-new, unofficial story is ideal for those tried-and-true Shopkins collectors. A very interesting story for about middle grade readers and adoring Shopkins fans, Marsha Mellow Goes Missing is a necessary addition to any middle grade reader's library. This series of unofficial sstories, published by Sky Pony Press is likely to rival the sucess of the unofficial novels for Minecrafters.

The Shopkins Kids Club, consists of five girls that meet each week to buy, trade, and play with their favorite Shopkins characters. Their adventures together inspire life lessons about friendship and family, too. Reading Marsha Mellow Goes Missing offers gentle reminders about the importance of taking care of your belongings, not making assumptions, being able to apologize, and, being inclusive friends, inviting others to join in on the fun.

Nine-year-old Maggie can’t wait to go camping with her grandparents and her friends from the Shopkins Kids Club. The five girls sit around the campfire, making s’mores, singing songs, and trading Shopkins. Everything is perfect, except for Maggie’s annoying little brother, Max, who’s being a huge pain. But when Maggie’s prized Marsha Mellow goes missing, the campout heads downhill fast. Maggie suspects that one of her friends might be the culprit: envious Ava has been eying up her Marsha Mellow all night! Can Maggie find Marsha Mellow—and find a way to salvage her friendships and her campout?
