We have had so much fun reading these books over the years...with each new release we have enjoyed them all over again. Even though my kids have long outgrown them from an age perspecitve, we still joke about when Nikki will get her own title! Ms. Lester...you have given Frank, Clive, Rosie, Tessa, Celeste and Ernie their time in the limelight...it is now time to give Nikki her chance to shine!
