Gloria Rising This chapter book sequel to 'Gloria's Way' uses offbeat humour to ponder serious themes: the purchase of an onion leads to a meeting with a female astronaut and new ambitions in Gloria's life. Her aspirations are thwarted by a new teacher, the 'Dragon of Doom', and a class bully, and Gloria must learn to rise above her difficulties. Notions of self-development are given a light touch, however, and Gloria's likeable character has an authentic, subtle appeal.
