Description
Wanda has freckles. Lots and lots of freckles. They make her feel special, until the day in the park when a group of boys point, laugh, and tease her for having spots. All of a sudden, the freckles she d liked become a problem. What can she do? Wanda decides that there's only one thing: make her freckles disappear altogether
At a time when there's pressure to conform to someone else's idea of perfection, this playful story has an important message: individuality and self-acceptance are to be celebrated. In this poignant and playful sequel to Wanda and the Wild Hair and Wanda and the Frogs, the ever-resourceful Wanda puts her imagination to work to try to come to peace with those troublesome freckles once and for all.
The critically acclaimed author/illustrator team of Barbara Azore and Georgia Graham bring another Wanda adventure to life with humor and wisdom.
