Linda Michelin, D.B. Johnson (Illustrator)

What Zuzu wants, Zuzu makes. In her happy hands a brown paper bag becomes a flower or a hat. Cardboard becomes a tent, a telescope, or a car. Zuzu makes everything into something else. But making a friend of the boy next door turns out to be harder than she thought. Can she get him to smile?

With the pictures by award-winning illustrator D. B. Johnson, Linda Michelin tells this exuberant story of a red-haired girl and her irrepressible imagination.
