Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wanda has freckles. Lots and lots of freckles. They make her feel special, until the day in the park when a group of boys point, laugh, and tease her for having spots. All of a sudden, the freckles shed liked become a problem. What can she do? Wanda decides that theres only one thing: make her freckles disappear altogether!

At a time when theres pressure to conform to someone elses idea of perfection, this playful story has an important message: individuality and self-acceptance are to be celebrated. In this poignant and playful sequel to Wanda and the Wild Hair and Wanda and the Frogs, the ever-resourceful Wanda puts her imagination to work to try to come to peace with those troublesome freckles once and for all.

The critically acclaimed author/illustrator team of Barbara Azore and Georgia Graham bring another Wanda adventure to life with humor and wisdom.

From the Hardcover edition.
