Cody and the Heart of a Champion

By Tricia Springstubb
Illustrated by Eliza Wheeler

Winter is finally melting into spring — but with everything in flux, from Cody’s friendships down to her shoe size, will she be able to stay true to herself?

In Cody’s life, some people keep her on her toes — just like Mother Nature, who is warm one day and snowy the next. Or like Cody’s brother, Wyatt, who has started wearing collared shirts because his girlfriend likes them. Meanwhile, Pearl has begun playing soccer and it’s all she can talk about. Spencer is busy creating a mysterious museum underneath GG’s house and he's never around to play. And Spencer’s mom doesn’t look any different. . . . Could she really have a baby growing inside her? Maybe the baby is like Cody’s beloved ants, waiting patiently inside the earth for spring to arrive. It seems like everything around Cody is changing — from seasons to friendships — but if she can just navigate it all with her trademark enthusiasm and charm, maybe the most important things will stay the same.

  • Charming, charismatic Cody returns in a heartwarming fourth book that highlights the adventures—and growing pains—of friendship and growing up.
  • An enchanting middle grade illustrated chapter book in the style of Judy Moody and Clementine that will appeal to both boys and girls.
  • The Cody series highlights a diverse neighborhood filled with warmth and charm.
