Wildly costumed for every occasion, Sylvia Jean is famous for always having the perfect outfit. She's a superhero when she wants to be brave, a swan when she must be elegant in ballet class, and a clown when people need cheering up.When a town-wide costume contest is announced, everyone assumes Sylvia Jean will be triumphant. But Sylvia Jean panics. How will she ever top her previous performances? After some musing and mulling (and not a little moaning), she once again conjures up an astonishing way to amaze the crowd--by going as herself.
