ABOUT THIS BOOK

If you loved The Stories Julian Tells, wait until you hear about the adventures of his best friend, Gloria! The Julian's World chapter book series is all about friendship, family, and imagination! 

What if your dream came true . . . and nobody believed you?
 
When Gloria goes to the store to buy an onion, she can’t believe who she meets! A real astronaut named Dr. Grace Street. Dr. Street explains to Gloria that problems aren’t always as big as they seem. And that’s good news! Because Gloria’s problem feels gigantic. She can’t seem to do anything to please her teacher, Mrs. Yardley. When Gloria writes a report about meeting Dr. Street, Mrs. Yardley doesn’t believe her. How can Gloria prove she’s telling the truth?

"Kids will be thrilled by the possibility of running into an astronaut in the checkout line." —The Bulletin, Recommended
