I love Karen's Haircut too! Now I really have to read Karen's Tea Party - so excited that it is part of the huge set of LS books that I just got. I hadn't ever owned LS books and just started reading them a few years ago but love them and can't wait to read more.
I agree with the popular opinion, Karen's Tea Party is a good one. I also love Karen's School Picture (when she gets her glasses) because it was the first one I ever read and I was obsessed with it when I was younger.
I love Karen's School Picture, too! Though I'm not a glasses wearer, I can sympathize with being teased (I was always the smallest and youngest one in the class) and my mom always tells me how she had similar situations to Karen with people being mean about her glasses (unfortunately, this led her to not wear them a lot, which made her eyesight worse). I like the example this book sets and still have to try to not feel satisfied when Ricky comes to school with glasses (serves him right )

I thought it was sweet how David Michael nicknamed Karen "Professor" after she got her glasses. It would be such a pain to have to switch glasses back and forth like that, especially as young as 7 years old.
All the good stuff happened in the first 20 books. Then they just started repeating themselves.

Yeah there's def some kids that I never figured out, but there are a LOT that you can pick out and I liked that. I don't have a copy of this anymore to look at (I'm thinking my niece might have it though! I'll have to check with her!)

Well, as long as we're making lists, I need #68, #107, #110, #114, and #117. And while technically I own #30, #38, and #41, those have been misplaced somewhere in my parents' house, which is a twelve-hour bus ride away, so I'm looking for new copies of those three as well.

^ Are those #s you need for LS books or regular series? If they are from the regular series, I have #30 and #38 (old covers). $1 each plus $1.75 (media) shipping and I can take paypal. Let me know. Thanks!
