Synopses & Reviews
Lily's family has been working on the gorgeous hummingbird costume for months, but it's Lily's big sister, Christine, who will wear it in the Children's Carnival. When Christine is gripped by stage fright on the big day, though, Lily stops resenting her sister and starts to sympathize with her. Lily gets a chance to wear the hummingbird costume and jump up -- dance -- for a happy ending. Color-saturated pastel drawings and a text with the cadence of Island speech convey the high-energy, festive atmosphere of Carnival in Trinidad.
