Vignettes of children whose less than desirable behavior is masked in insidious but acceptable ways

From the Publisher:

Meet Ruby, who watches as her brother pulls the tablecloth off the kitchen table; Arthur, who hates to get dressed up and pours grape juice on his new suit; and Harriet, a terrible whiner who's got her eyes on a slice of blueberry pie.

What do all of these wonderfully wicked characters have in common? They're all lovable despite their imperfections, and all inhabit these seven charmingly illustrated, deliciously funny stories.

About the Author:

Florence Parry Heide (1919–2011) was the author of more than 100 children’s books, including picture books, juvenile novels, two series of young adult mysteries, plays, songbooks, and poetry. She may be best remembered for her now-classic The Shrinking of Treehorn and its two sequels, illustrated by the great Edward Gorey. Florence grew up in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, married during World War Two, and spent her adult life in Kenosha, Wisconsin, with her husband and five children, all of whom grew up listening to the joyful sounds of an old typewriter.
