"In springy rhymed verse, Eaddy captures her heroine’s inventive vision as she explores costume options while her inanimate menagerie patiently looks on. She gives multiple options a whirl, sourcing domestic props: 'Or what about an elephant?/ I could be one of those.// With pillowcases for my ears,/ a sock could be my nose.' Rendered digitally, pictures by Fleming give the wide-eyed, ginger-haired protagonist ample personality and energy, and imbue her toy animals with a winsome homespun quality." (Publishers Weekly)
