Gingerly Ruffles Some Feathers (Volume 3) by Terri Kelley is the third in the series. Gingerly, Zoey, and a few others decide to correct a mistake. Though reluctant to get involved in it, Gingerly is convinced by her friend Zoey to join the cause as it is for something good. Zoey tells Gingerly that it is the right thing to do and both of them join together and use their friendship to sort out the issue.

The book, like the rest of the series, deals with Gingerly and the stories revolving around her. It is a simple and neat story that will appeal to any child. The story shows the camaraderie between two friends and how they stand by each other when things are going wrong. The bond between friends is something that is shared by school children and adults alike. A genuine friend will stand by you through your trials and tribulations. The author has put it in a very subtle manner and that forms the underlying message of the book. The illustrations add life to the characters and episodes in the story.

The theme is a relevant one among school-going kids. Many of them can relate to the incidents mentioned in the story. The inner strength and courage of a person while facing problems is dealt with nicely. The author speaks about friends, friendship, school, school life, parents, and the principal in a liberating manner that makes the reader feel good.
