View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Two funny, fast-paced stories about a lively, lovable little girl called Mabel. Mabel hates her name - it's so boring. She tries a host of new ones, but none of them quite fits. Then she sees a beautiful, glamorous singer on television called Mabel...and decides that her own name is just fine, after all. In the second story, Mabel gets the red dress of her dreams. It makes her feel like a dancer leaping in air...but her classmates tell her she looks like a tomato. Their teasing makes Mabel hate her dress, until she comes to realize that it shouldn't matter what other people say. Full of zip and optimism, these two bubbly stories are perfectly pitched at beginner readers who will respond to their wit and warmth, as well as to their gently reassuring encouragement to learn self-confidence.

Children’s Literature
Bright, engaging illustrations, both simple and evocative, add depth and emotion to the story.

School Library Journal
The splashy, cartoon illustrations do an excellent job of supporting the narratives. Edgier and more interesting than the titles in the “Hello Reader” series (Scholastic), these books are solid additions.
