The Golly Sisters are performers, but they always run in to some sort of trouble! First their horse won’t go, then they have costume arguments, have dogs show up for their performances instead of people, etc. This is an easy reader divided into 6 chapters.

Genre: This is a good example of realistic fiction because the events could really happen. Many people move around in groups to perform around the US. Granted, they probably don't travel by covered wagon, but it is still plausible.

Plot: 5 stars

Age: Primary
