A fun and engaging chapter book series, each volume is targeted towards 6 to 11-year olds, but is suitable for all ages. With an eclectic mix of characters, readers are able to identify with one or more of the children in the book. The vibrant, colorful illustrations are not only beautiful, but showcase the talents of Jerl Laws.
Focusing on making communities stronger, each book focuses on a unique problem within the community that the children must tackle and find ways to solve.
The six characters in the story show how a group of neighborhood friends can be diverse and distinctive with their own personal strengths:
- V-Girl – Based on one of the author’s twin daughters, V-Girl is an African American fraternal twin who radiates love and compassion and has a flair for the arts.

- Pixel – As the jokester of the group, Pixel is a positive, solution-oriented Asian American who has a gentle, yet strong presence.
- Ivy – A Native American girl, Ivy is a confident and outspoken vegan who is grounded and in-tune with herself and the world around her.
