Edie is a funny, well-intentioned force of nature who leaves a trail of damage wherever she goes. Olivia meets Fancy Nancy. Edie is EVER so helpful. In fact, helping is one of the things she's best at Some might even say she's too good. Whether it's helping her family wake up bright and early with an extremely loud song, brightening up the walls of her house with lots and lots of colorful paint, or styling grandpa's hair in the latest fashion . . . while he's fast asleep, sometimes Edie needs to be reminded not to be quite so helpful. Perfect for fans of Olivia, Fancy Nancy and Eloise -- a joyful celebration of good intentions gone wrong. Praise for Edie Is Ever So Helpful "A charming, funny selection that's sure to be embraced." --Kirkus Reviews "Sure to be a big hit, this delightful story will be enjoyed one-on-one while also making an excellent read-aloud in storytime." --School Library Journal
