Vivi is dizzy with wanting pink the kind the rich girls have, beyond the budget of her beloved truck driver dad. One day in the window of a fancy toy store she sees something that's just right a bride doll in a dress of perfect glistening pink. Vivi wants it more than anything. She saves and saves for it, walking the neighbors dog and running errands for them. However when she takes her parents to show them the precious doll, something surprising happens. Nan Gregory's touching story about what's really important features vibrant images by illustrator Luc Melanson.
