Meet Marigold! From renowned author Florence Parry Heide comes a picture book about one clever, complicated—and hilarious—little girl. Follow Marigold as she buys a new coat (don’t worry, she still wears the old one to bed. She’s a very loyal person), plays a great trick (involving a Special Surprise Treasure Stand and worms), and much more. Along the way you'll meet Marigold’s best friend—her purple coat—and her next best friend—Maxine.
Simply and with inimitable humor, a legendary picture book writer and inventive illustrator create an original character that all children will laugh over . . . and will love.

Praise For The One and Only Marigold…
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, December 15, 2008:
“[The] snappy, funny stories of monkey-hippo friendship are as appealing as the folk art–style gouache illustrations and lively-but-clean design."
