About the Book
An if/then picture book in which an orderly, proper little girl plans the perfect party, but her efforts to make everything “just so” literally send her off on an adventure. As she becomes more and more disheveled—her pinned up hair flies free, a giant sneeze sends her tumbling, she and her dress end up soaking wet—a wild journey unfolds. The unplanned proves to be great fun.
