Product Details


The bright mixed-media illustrations are full of motion and personality, and scenes of the child festooning the living room with toilet-paper snow and sliding down the stairs face first on her belly are sure to elicit chuckles from kids (and sucked teeth from adults). A funny story that encourages readers to be unapologetic about who they actually are.
—Kirkus Reviews

This lighthearted romp celebrates children’s freedom to try on different identities and extends imaginative play to new (and sometimes annoying-to-parents) levels…Scenes of penguin mania, including the girl draping the sofa in "snow" (toilet paper) and standing in the fridge, are a hoot. Reality finally intrudes with an urgent need to wash the outfit, but the girl’s adaptability (and knack for quick costume changes) is both comic and triumphant.
