Ella love-love-loves her brand-new umbrella. It's sky blue with white clouds, and it makes the most satisfying whoosh . . . click sound. Rain or shine, Ella insists on taking it with her everywhere. Unfortunately, a whoosh-clicking umbrella can cause serious trouble . . . especially at a ballet recital. It's a good thing Ella is a problem solver, because she's going to need to be creative to get what she wants.

Sarah Weeks and Doug Cushman deliver a hilarious and universal tale about a little girl's trouble letting go of a favorite object.
