Product description

Review

The bright mixed-media illustrations are full of motion and personality, and scenes of the child festooning the living room with toilet-paper snow and sliding down the stairs face first on her belly are sure to elicit chuckles from kids (and sucked teeth from adults). A funny story that encourages readers to be unapologetic about who they actually are.
--Kirkus Reviews

This lighthearted romp celebrates children's freedom to try on different identities and extends imaginative play to new (and sometimes annoying-to-parents) levels...Scenes of penguin mania, including the girl draping the sofa in "snow" (toilet paper) and standing in the fridge, are a hoot. Reality finally intrudes with an urgent need to wash the outfit, but the girl's adaptability (and knack for quick costume changes) is both comic and triumphant.
--Booklist Online
