Booklist Review: "June's kooky grandma sent her the Wonder Wheel, so now, every day, she can give it a spin and follow instructions from a sealed envelope. June hopes that the wheel can assist her and her puppy, Sammy, in making friends with the new girl next door, Mae. That is, if June's arch nemesis, April, doesn't befriend Mae first! Harper has written a cute new series opener featuring diverse characters that will appeal to a wide range of readers. The Wonder Wheel is a clever device, which allows June's grandma to teach her important lessons while being miles away. When the wheel lands on Collection, for instance, June has to work with classmates to gather items, while the Questions wedge encourages June to make some new friends. Spires' spot illustrations add humor, as Mae and June are always presented in a flurry of motion and excitement. By the end, June still has plenty of directions for her Wonder Wheel, so there are lots of opportunities for forthcoming adventures.--Tomsu, Lindsey Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "June's best friend is her dog, Sammy, their relationship made all the stronger by the fact that they can communicate with each other. But June remains on the hunt for a human friend, and Harper's (the Just Grace series) sweet-natured story focuses on the trickiness of classroom social circles and June's efforts to befriend her new neighbor, Mae. Slow to get going, the story picks up when June receives the eponymous Wonder Wheel as a gift from her grandmother, a carnival-game-style spinning wheel with categories that encourage June to choose a spirit animal (an inclusion that may raise some eyebrows), embark on a scavenger hunt, and lend a helping hand, among other activities. Spires's b&w artwork, included throughout, nicely amplifies June's emotional ups and downs. Ages 6-9. Author's agent: Amy Rennert, Amy Rennert Agency.
