Publisher's Summary

Students at a whimsical school for children of busy parents learn silly lessons about manners, friendship, and going far in life in book two of the series that's tailor-made for a new generation of Mary Poppins fans. 

Great Rapscott School for the Daughters of Busy Parents is not your typical boarding school. Students arrive in boxes, birthday cake is served for breakfast, and two very talented corgis assist the rather quirky headmistress. This semester the girls will learn how to get to The Top, but the semester is not off to a good start. One of the girls doesn't make it back to school, and when her friends try to rescue her, they wind up at the Bottom of the Barrel. Luckily Ms. Rapscott knows that learning to fail is the secret to Going Far in life. 

This sequel to Ms. Rapscott's Girls is full of warmhearted lessons, spirited adventure, and good cheer.
