A funny, accessible chapter-book series about an irrepressible third grader. NARRATOR: Cassandra Morris FORMAT: 2 CDs, Unabridged Marty McGuire's third-grade class has a special assignment: Save the Earth! Even more exciting, the best project wins a special award. Marty's pretty sure her classmates' ideas won't stand a chance against her plan to turn the garbage from the school cafeteria into fertilizer. All she needs is a little help from her teammate and best friend, Annie--and the earthworms in her grandma's garden. But it turns out that worms are awfully SLOW eaters. And when the critters escape, the whole class starts grumbling--including Annie. Can Marty save the Earth without losing her best friend?
