In this culturally neutral chapter book, Beatrice Holmes Garcia draws the events of her life. Her best friend Yvonne has moved to Australia and Bea misses her terribly. Worse, Bert moves next door and he is a growly, name-calling bully. During a geography lesson, Bea draws cartoons of Bert stranded below sea level, on top of Mount Everest and prone in the desert. She is embarrassed when the teacher shares her drawings with the class. But her artistic talent ("You are an amazing artist!") impresses her classmates and now maybe life won't be so bad for Bea without Yvonne.
