Jennifer's aunt has given her a beautiful rainbow-colored diary. The trouble is, Jennifer can't think of a single thing to write in it. Her friend Iola is just bursting with ideas to fill the glossy blank pages of a new diary - stories about rescuing drowning victims and eerie ghosts in pink dresses. So what if none of the stories are true? Iola wants that diary. But how can she convince Jennifer that it should really be hers?
Filled with engaging illustrations, this dashingly droll chapter book demonstrates how good storytellers like Iola can turn even the most mundane occurrences into amusing fictions.
