"I am the queen "

Lilly loves all sorts of things. She loves school, she loves dressing up, she even grows to love her stinky baby brother, Julius. In fact, Lilly loves everything But when Lilly brings her purple plastic purse to school and can't wait until sharing time to show off the purse and her movie star sunglasses, her teacher, Mr. Slinger, has to take away her prized possessions.

Lilly's fury leads her to draw a mean picture of her favorite teacher. It isn't until Mr. Slinger gives her belongings back to her with a kind note and snacks that Lilly realizes she owes Mr. Slinger an apology.

Lilly, the star of Chester's Way and Julius, the Baby of the World, is back. And this time she has her name in the title--something she's wanted all along. If you thought Lilly was funny before, you are in for a treat. So hurry up and start reading. Lilly can't wait for you to find out more about her.

Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse is a picture book to share at home or in the classroom--Lilly is funny and unique, and her irrepressible joy is catching. Kids, parents, and teachers will all relate to the powerful emotions and appreciate the sweet and satisfying resolution.
