Justine McKeen, Pooper Scooper

De
64 pages
Meet Justine McKeen, the Queen of Green. She talks a little too much, bosses a little too much, and tells the truth, just not all at once. She's trying to save the planet, one person at a time, and when she decides to get something done, it's a lot of fun. In Justine McKeen, Pooper Scooper, the third book in the Justine McKeen series, Justine gets her friends to help her clean up the dog poop in the park across from the school board's offices in an effort to get the attention of the superintendent of schools. She hopes the efforts of her crew of cheerful pooper scoopers will help get the superintendent to see that bringing their school librarian back to work is the right thing to do.

Chapter One
“This is great,” Justine McKeen said to Michael and Safdar. She sat on a bench, holding her new ebook reader. “My backpack is so empty without all my books.” It was a beautiful fall day. Justine and her friends had stopped at the town’s Central Park on their way home from school. “Guys?” she said, lifting her head. Michael and Safdar were playing catch with a football. Jimmy Blatzo was sitting by himself on the grass in the middle of the park. He was looking at his own new ebook reader. Jimmy Blatzo often sat alone. Justine thought this needed to change.

She set her ebook reader on the bench. She ran and caught the ball. “Interception!” she yelled and danced a victory dance. “Hey!” Michael said. “We had a game going.” “Hey!” Safdar said. “If I had caught that, I would have won.” “Hey, yourself,” Justine said. “In a real game, people try to take the ball away. Nyahnyah, boo boo, crybabies.” She laughed and ran through the park with the ball. Michael and Safdar chased her. “Blatzo,” she called as she got close. “Go for the long bomb!” “You’re a girl,” he said as he stood. “You can’t throw.” She stopped and fired the football. He couldn’t catch it because he was holding his ebook reader. The football hit him in the stomach. He groaned loudly.

Michael and Safdar caught up to Justine. Jimmy Blatzo picked up the football and stomped toward them. Justine said, “Bad catch, Blatzo. Run over there. I’ll let you try again.” “How many times do I have to tell you?” he said. “Don’t call me Blatzo. People will think we are friends.” Jimmy Blatzo had been the first one to call Justine the Queen of Green. Now everybody did. Justine McKeen really was a queen of green. And everybody except for Justine was afraid to disagree with Jimmy Blatzo. “How many times do I have to tell you?” she said. “We are friends.” “Michael and I won’t call you Blatzo,” Safdar said. “We know we are not your friends,” Michael said. Jimmy Blatzo looked at Michael and Safdar. “I didn’t give you permission to speak.” “I forgot,” Safdar said. “Me too,” Michael said. “You are still speaking.” Jimmy Blatzo stopped and sniffed. “Hey, who stepped in dog poop?”

Justine checked the bottom of her shoes. Michael checked his shoes. Safdar checked his shoes. Jimmy Blatzo checked his shoes. Nobody found dog poop on their shoes. Justine sniffed and sniffed. She walked behind Jimmy Blatzo. A big brown patch was smushed across Jimmy Blatzo’s butt. “I was afraid of that,” she said. “You were sitting in it on the grass.” Michael and Safdar were smart enough not to laugh.

Chapter Two
At school the next morning, Justine walked down the hallway before the bell rang. Jimmy Blatzo tapped her on the shoulder. “You didn’t tell anybody about the dog poop on my pants, right?” “A promise is a promise,” Justine said. “But what’s the big deal if people find it funny?” “It’s my job to scare people, not make them laugh.” Two boys walked past. Jimmy Blatzo raised his arms like a monster and growled. The boys jumped and ran away. “See?” he said. “Like that.” “Nice,” she said. “Now come to the library with me.”
