Hildy writes in her new journal about her best friend's nosebleed; the eccentricities of apartment house neighbors; Aunt Henrietta's deals with the tooth fairy; a dreamy dance with a wheelchair-mobile adult friend and his wife; and her father's recurring schlag test of dessert at a neighborhood steak house. Nine journal entries characterize precocious Hildy, a Brooklyn eight-year-old whose family values books, reading and writing - and each other. Full-color, full-page illustrations accompany an entertaining story which may also encourage budding young writers. (Ages 7-9)
