When Eddie sets off to find a present for her mother, all she knows it that it has to be wonderful, fluffy, little, and squishy. Her quest takes her all over town, and ends with surprises for her and her mom. Colorful, detailed illustrations practically glow and beg to be looked at again and again.

Description


Winner of the 2016 Mildred L. Batchelder Award
Here Alemagna stakes herself on the idea that the adventures children make for themselves are by far the very best

Eddie is five and a half, and thinks she is the only one in her family who isn't really good at something. So when she hears her little sister say "birthday--Mommy--fluffy--little--squishy," it's extra important for her to find this amazing present before anyone else does. So, gregarious, charming, clever little Eddie goes all around the neighborhood to all her fabulous friends--the florist, the chic boutique owner, the antiques dealer, and even the intimidating butcher--to find one. It's a magical adventure that draws on Eddie's special gifts, ones that she herself learns to appreciate.
