Every child knows a “perfect Prudence,” someone perfect in every way. In this delightful picture book, readers will discover that Prudence isn’t quite as perfect as everyone thinks. Even though she’s a one-girl show in the school play--singing, dancing, working the lights, and playing both ends of a cow--she forgets the one thing that will let her show her perfection to the world.
Told in a hilarious, exaggerated style with lively illustrations, this picture book will delight young children who know someone perfect, as well as their parents who remember those perfect kids from their school days!

Grade 1-3-Prudence always performs perfectly-at everything. Auditions for the school play reveal that she's just right for every available part-stage handyman, sound engineer, the four acting roles, or banjo player. She simply blows away the competition. Brightly painted, energetic cartoon illustrations highlight this overachiever's world. Readers witness her confidence, dreams of glory backstage, and perfection onstage in a double-page solo in the spotlight. The kids say they're used to her having all the fun, but a program for the performance reveals a scribbled mustache drawn on her face. In a humorous but rewarding twist at the end of the performance, Prudence and readers realize that one person simply cannot do everything perfectly.
