Mark Shulman and Vincent Nguyen have done it again: created a wonderfully imaginative picture book that's full of wit and humor--and touching, too.
Welcome to Hilary's tea party--but be careful: this rude little girl has "lots "of rules to follow. Maybe that's why no one except her stuffed animals, Mr. Big Arms and Stuffy Bear, stays very long. She's just no fun.
Now, Hilary's come up with a great idea: she's putting a handmade invitation at the corner bus stop in hopes of finding a new friend. Enter a giant yet timid chameleon, all ready for tea and cookies. But when he finds out how bossy Hilary can be, will he run out the door, too?
Children will enjoy pouring a cup of tea (real or
imaginary), curling up with this charming story, and finding out the answer.
