An icky uh-oh moment makes for an entertaining story.

Cleo has been bonked on the head by an avalanche of toys and had to wear underwear for a hat in a snowstorm, but nothing compares to the trauma of barfing on Mrs. Kenly?s fur coat. On the way to a birthday party, a combination of carsickness and too many pancakes turns Cleo green in the face, and before anything can be done, her friend?s mom?s fancy coat is a big, barfy mess. Cleo has never been so mortified, but kind grown-ups and good friends soon make her feel as if nothing even happened.
